JAMAAT-E-ISLAMI


The Jamaat-e-Islami is a social conservative and Islamist political party, advocating for an Islamic and democratic form of government in Pakistan. The Jamaat-e-Islaami was founded in 1941 in Lahore by Muslim theologian and socio-political philosopher Abul Ala Maududi.

The party is led by an Emir (literally: Leader), and currently Syed Munawar Hasan is the Emir of JI. JI is headquartered in Mansoorah district, Lahore.

MANIFESTO


The party claims in its manifesto that it will end “US slavery to restore Pakistan’s independence and sovereignty.” That it will end reliance on the IMF and will strive for self reliance. It claims that it will wipe out corruption, will overcome load shedding within six months and will build five major dams within ten years to overcome the power and water shortage. It states in its manifesto that it will work towards evolving an interest free economy, dissolving all Jagirs and distribution of acquired land among the tillers.


HISTORY


The Jamaat-e-Islami was founded during the British control in India, the JI moved its organization after the Indian partition to the newly created state of Pakistan, initially setting up its organizational mass in West-Pakistan. The members who remained in India regrouped to form an independent organization called Jamaat-e-Islami Hind.

During the Bangladesh Liberation War, the JI opposed the independence of Bangladesh, but established itself there as an independent political party, the Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami after 1975. The JI maintains close ties with international Muslim groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. The JI is a vanguard party; its members form an elite with "affiliates" and then "sympathizers" beneath them.
