The Jamaat Ahle Sunnat (Urdu: جماعت اہل سنت‎) is a Muslim religious organization in Pakistan that represents the Barelvi movement. It was started by the Muhammad Shafee Okarvi.

History[edit]

In 2006, a bomb attack on a Jamaat Ahle Sunnat organised event to celebrate the mawlid (birthday of the Muslim prophet Muhammad) in Karachi killed at least 57 people and injured over 80.[1][2] Among the dead were several Barelvi religious figures, including the senior leadership of Jamaat Ahle Sunnat and Sunni Tehreek.[3] Three men said to belong to the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi were indicted for the crime.[4]

In January 2011, scholars from the organization advised Muslims not to attend the funeral of Salmaan Taseer, the Punjab governor who had recently been assassinated in response to his outspoken beliefs against blasphemy laws.[5]
