Breaking News: Amir Jamaat e Islami Pakistan Siraj-ul-Haq Resigns

Siraj-ul-Haq’s resignation from his position as the chief of Jamaat-e-Islami comes in the wake of the party’s significant setback in the 2024 general elections. Haq, in a tweet, cited his acceptance of responsibility for the defeat as the reason for his resignation. Despite his efforts, the party did not achieve the desired success in the elections.

Haq praised the hard work of the party workers and expressed hope that Allah would accept their efforts. His resignation signals his acknowledgment of the failure in the elections and his willingness to take responsibility for it.

A Shura meeting has been called by Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Ameer-ul-Azeem on February 17 at the party’s headquarters in Mansoorah. This meeting will review the post-resignation situation and decide on the future course of action for the party.

The spokesperson emphasized that Jamaat-e-Islami is a fully democratic party, conducting regular elections at every level as per its constitution. The process of selecting the next Amir (chief) of the party is underway, with three names already announced: Sirajul Haque, Liaquat Baloch, and Hafiz Naeemur Rehman. Members of the party can provide their opinions on any member apart from these three names.

The election commission president of Jamaat-e-Islami, Rashid Naseem, has outlined the timeline for the Amir selection process, with all stages expected to be completed by March 31, and results announced in April. This process underscores the party’s commitment to democratic principles in its leadership transition.
