New Delhi, 21 April 2015: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, India’s largest Muslim organization, has elected its new leadership for the term 2015-2019. While sitting National President Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, Islamic scholar and author of international repute, has been re-elected to head the organisation, he has appointed a Secretary General and his three deputies (Vice Presidents) with the advice of Jamaat’s Central Advisory Council.

Jamaat’s 144-member highest body Markazi Majlis-e Numanidgan (Council of Representatives) elected Maulana Umari as Ameer (National President) for third consecutive term and an 18-member Central Advisory Council. The election was held earlier this month at the national headquarters of the Jamaat here in Delhi.

With the advice of the CAC, Jamaat chief has now appointed Mohammed Salim Engineer as Secretary General of the Jamaat and three Vice Presidents namely Nusrat Ali, T. Arif Ali and Syed Sadatullah Husaini.

Mohammed Salim Engineer has served as Jamaat’s National Secretary for the Department of Public Relations. In addition, he also serves as professor of Electronic Communications at MNIT, Jaipur.

Nusrat Ali has served as Secretary General of Jamaat in the previous two terms. T. Arif Ali has served as state president of Jamaat in Kerala for the previous two terms. Syed Sadatullah Husaini is director of Jamaat’s research institute Centre for Study and Research.

Besides, Jamaat’s National President Maulana Umari has also appointed three secretaries namely Iqbal Mullah (Dawat), Mohammad Ahmad (Mulki Aur Aalami Masayel) and Maulana Rafiq Qasmi (Islami Muwashara). All three have served as secretaries for their respective departments in the previous terms as well.

Secretaries for other departments will be appointed at a later date.
