Maulana Mohammad Abdul Aziz, a Pakistani cleric who has been world famous for his controversial remarks, recently made headlines owing to his belief of imposing Sharia all across the globe. 

The 57-year-old cleric recently told Fox News that Pakistan is no more a destination, "we will come out as a force to establish Islamic rule over the entire world".

Aziz also noted that he desires the complete imposition of Sharia within Pakistan and is ready to "wage a war against the government" to ensure that the same is achieved. 

Aziz was once the head cleric of Islamabad's oldest mosque, the Lal Masjid.

Aziz is infamous for his inflammatory sermons, anti-American ideology, for sparking global jihadist movements and supporting designated terrorist groups. He once described Osama bin Laden as an "Islamist warrior".
