The Pasban-e-Pakistan (Urdu: پاسبانِ پاکستان lit. Defenders of Pakistan) also known as Pasban Democratic Party[2] is a political party in Pakistan. It raises its voice against issues of injustice in society. Pasban's current president and founder is Altaf Shakoor.[3][4]


Pasban was initially a youth wing of Jamaat-e-Islami in Pakistan.[5][6] In 1995, Pasban split from Jaamat-e-Islami and was founded by Altaf Shakoor as a separate splinter group.[7] It registered itself as a political party in 2013. Now it is an independent organisation working for human rights and highlights the problems faced by the common men.[8][9][10][11]
