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, yesterday invited the former army chief who retired this week after a three-year tenure to join the party.

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.
