Jamaat-e-Islami "Islamic Block" Jamaat, JI) is an Islamist political party in Pakistan. It was founded in Lahore, India, by Sayyid abul ala Maududi on 26 august 1941, and is the oldest religious party in Pakistan. Today sister organizations with similar objectives and ideological approaches exist in India, (Jamaat-e-Islami Hind), Bangladesh (Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh), Kashmir, and Sri Lanka, and there are "close brotherly relations" with the Islamist movements and missions "working in different continents and countries", particularly those affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood or akhwan-al-Muslimeen. The JI envisions an Islamic government in Pakistan governing by Islamic law. It opposes Westernization--including capitalism, socialism, or such practices as bank interest, birth control, and relaxed social mores.While JI states, "The Muslim woman is accorded full spiritual and intellectual equality with man...", this does not include equality before the law.JI stated means to power is by peaceful methods - "We have to convince the people that a ‘Bloody Revolution’ is a path leading to destruction and the ‘Islamic Revolution’ is the path ensuring true change and deliverance.It seeks to convert members of the Pakistani elite to its cause and "exercising influence in all branches of Pakistani society". JI does not advocate a peaceful strategy in separating the predominately-Muslim province of Kashmir from India, its president calling Pakistan-administered Kashmir the base-camp for the jihad in Indian-administered Kashmir.Links between JI and al-Qaeda have also been alleged

I like Jamaat-e-Islami because it is working for Islam and according to me, Islam can help the man to solve problems created by capitalism and secularism.

Plz God save us from these JI and mullah freaks! Their 5 year Government in the NWFP destroyed our province. This whole situation in Swat and the rest of Malakand Agency has been caused by them because they support extremists and militant Islam. They themselves will rot in hell, I am sure!

Jammaat should not be strict but elastic and progressive. it should learn from past and should make future certain. it should remove all confusions and become clear to every one.
