Tehreek e Islami

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Tehreek e Islami is an Islamic revolutionary religious and political party of Pakistan.[1][2] It was founded by the author and Islamic scholar Naeem Siddiqui and his fellows in 1994 following their exodus from Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) in 1993, after the failure of Jamaat e Islami in the politics of Pakistan[3]. Its head office is in Karachi.

Its objective is to make Pakistan an Islamic state, governed by Sharia law, through a gradual process. Tehreek e Islami strongly opposes capitalism, liberalism, socialism and secularism as well as economic practices such as offering bank interest. Like Jamaat-e-Islami and Tanzeem-e-Islami its members form an elite with "affiliates" and then "sympathizers" beneath them. The party leader is called an ameer. In 1996, the party split into two groups,[4][5] one group was led by Naeem Siddiqui himself while the coordinator of the other group was Hafeez ur Rehman Ahsan.Due to the endavour and mediation of some Arab based Pakistani friends both the groups were re-united in 1998,he expressed the story of re-uninion in a letter to his friend Khwaja Maqbool Ellahi in 2001[6] by saying that our difference was unique and now our union is also very unique[7].After the unity of both the groups of the tehreek e Islami Naeem Siddiqui became its spiritual and political Qauid(leader)[8]but he refused to become the Ameer of the Tehreeke Islami due to his illness.
