Nawab Jam Sadiq Ali (Urdu: جام صادق علی) (ca. 1934– 5 March 1992) was a politician from Sindh, Pakistan. He was the Nawab of Sanghar and Sardar of Junejo tribe and belonged to the ruling dynasty of Samaa Ja'ams who ruled Sindh over two centuries up to middle of 1700. After his passing in March 1992 he was succeeded by his son Nawab Jam Mashooq Ali Khan. Nawab Jam Mashooq Ali Khan, who had served as a federal minister and a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan multiple times, died in 2018. He was then succeeded by Nawab Jam Zulfiquar Ali Khan, who is the current Chief of the Samaa Dynasty, Chief of Junejo tribes and Nawab of Sanghar.
