Islamabad :  

Pakistan's right wing Jamaat-e-Islami has invited former army chief General Raheel Sharif to join the party following his retirement.

Jamaat  parliamentary in the Punjab assembly, Waseem Akhtar, invited Sharif who retired this week after a three-year tenure to join the party.

Akhtar asked the former army chief on Thursday to help the party change the face of politics the same way he "altered the fate of the nation" through the operation Zarb-e-Azb against terrorism, the Express Tribune reported.

While speaking on a supplementary question during the question hour, he said after mandatory two years for every government servant before joining politics, Sharif should join the Jamaat-e-Islami.
