Siraj-ul-Haq resigns as the Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami

Siraj-ul-Haq resigned on Monday as the Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami, following JI’s loss and worse showing in the 2024 Elections.

JI only received two seats in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly and none in the National Assembly.

Sirajul Haq: who is he?
The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) leader and senior minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sirajul Haq, was chosen as the party’s new ameer in 2014.

Syed Munawar Hassan, the departing head at the time, was succeeded by Sirajul Haq. Elections were held in Mansoora, the JI Headquarters. 25,533 of the 31,311 party office holders cast ballots in 2014, giving Sirajul Haq a majority of the total.

After serving as the party’s leader for five years, Siraj ul Haq was re-elected in 2019. Following a decade of service to the JI, Siraj ul Haq has now resigned from his position.

Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman said earlier in the day that he was stepping down from the provincial legislature, claiming ‘electoral misconduct’ that he claims is rampant.

Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman explicitly mentioned the PS-129 Central Karachi Sindh Assembly constituency, where he had previously won a seat, during a news conference held in Karachi.

He said he had serious doubts about the fairness of the election process and angrily charged the government with arranging “the worst rigging.”

Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman declared, “Jamaat-e-Islami unequivocally asserts that the electoral process has been spoiled by gross malpractice.”
