Pakistan Muslim League (Zia-ul-Haq Shaheed) is a far-right wing and pro-Islamism political party in Pakistan formed in 2002. It is one of the factions of the original Pakistan Muslim League, named after General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s military dictator from 1977 to 1988.

It was founded by his son, Muhammad Ijaz-ul-Haq, in 2002 with an initial aim of bringing back the religious government previously in 1980s.

PML -Z want a peaceful world for a human and socially just society with equal opportunities for all in light of the universal principles of Islam.

With the general elections of 2002, Ijaz Ul Haq won the National assembly seat and gained the Federal Religious Affairs ministry .

In March, PML-Zia successfully contested by-elections held in Bahawalnagar for Member of the Punjab Provincial Assembly, upsetting the Pakistan Peoples Party. During the floods of 2010, the party also came to attention for distributing relief goods worth millions of rupees in Southern Punjab

On October 9, 2011, PML-Zia became the only party to support the PML-N’s threatening to dissolve the Punjab Assembly and pre-empt the PPP’s expected victory in the 2012 Senate elections. In the general elections in 2013, PML-Z contested two seats and won again from NA-191 Bahawalnagar in the National Assembly, and two seats in the Punjab Assembly. Ijaz’s constituency NA-191 recorded the highest voter turnout in the country for 2013.
