The Jamaat-e-Islami Kashmir is a Cadre-based religio-political organization in Jammu and Kashmir (J & K), distinct from the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (the Indian branch of the Jamaat). The organisation's stance is that J & K is not a part of India.[citation needed]

The founders of this organization include Islamic thinkers and scholars Molana Ghulam Ahmad Ahrar (Shopian), Molana Saad-ud-Din Tarabali, Moulana Mufti Mohammad Amin Shopiani, Molana Hakim Gulam Nabi (Chetragam Shopian),Qari Saif-ud-Din, Molana Suliman Sahib, Sayed Ali Shah Geelani, Ghulam Rasool Malik (Shahlatoo shopian), Ghulam Rosool Naik (Ratnipora Shopian) and others. They formed the nucleus around which grew the Islamic movement in the valley of Kashmir, based on a definite doctrine in sync with the socio-cultural essence of Islam.[citation needed]
