Rabita Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (RJUI) is a Deobandi Islamist political party in Pakistan. It was established on 29 December 2020 as a breakway faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) (JUI-F), which was led by Fazl-ur-Rehman. The founder of the RJUI is Muhammad Khan Sherani and the Ameer of the party is Shuja ul Mulk.[3][4] The party was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan on 20 September 2022.[5]

On 31 March 2021, Sherani met Fazl-ur-Rehman to inquire about his health and make suggestions to resolve the differences between their parties. "If Fazl acts on our suggestions, we will join him again," Sherani said.[6]

Alliance with Imran Khan's PTI[edit]

On 13 June 2022, Sherani met with Imran Khan and declared an alliance with his party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.[7]

Sherani also took to Twitter and said that when he asked Fazl ur-Rehman does he have proof that Imran Khan is a Jewish and Indian agent, the latter responded with "it's just a political statement".[8]
