Maulana Sherani, while speaking at the occasion, said that the struggle against Islamophobia is the common goal of both the parties. He underscored the importance of eliminating the discrimination in the society. Moreover, he outlines the three guiding principles of his party; no action from their party against Quran and Sunnah, propagation of the Islamic teachings, and avoid forcing or pressurizing anyone to work with them.

Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani served as a member of the National Assembly up till 2018, he has also served as the Chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII). Maulana Sheraani had parted ways with JUI-F in 2020 over difference in socio-political views.

In the ensuing political crisis in the country, this alliance being regarded as major development. This new political alliance can hurt the support base of the whole PDM, particularly that of JUI-F in the upcoming general elections.
