Jamiat Ahle Hadith Pakistan (Urdu:مرکزی جمیعت اہلِ حدیث پاکستان, Arabic: المركزى جمعية اهل حديث الباكستان) is a religious organization and political party in Pakistan. It was founded by Maulana Dawood Ghaznavi and Muhammad Ibrahim Mir Sialkoti in 1947. JAH is a founding member of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). As of 2018, the party is led by Sajid Mir.
Split into MJA and JAHP and remerge
In 1987, following Zaheer's death, JAH later splits up into 2 main factions, namely Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith (MJAH) led by Sajid Mir and another faction led by Ehsan Elahi Zaheer's son Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer namely Jamiat Ahle Hadith Pakistan (Elahi Zaheer) (JAHP). But in 2018, Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer later announced to remerge his faction along with Sajid Mir's faction.
Ahle Hadith Youth Force
On 20 September 2020, JAH's Ameer Sajid Mir attended the All Parties Conference (APC). At the APC, ten parties started the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) which was made to remove military establishment of Pakistan from politics. JAH also came for PDM's public gatherings and powershows.
