Education and career[edit]

Tariq Jameel belongs to a zamindar (landlord) family.[4] He was a former medical student from Lahore.[4] Later, he received his Islamic education from Jamia Arabia, Raiwind.[5] He frequently visits places to deliver Islamic speeches at rallies in which he preaches peace, tolerance and respect for everyone. He promotes ethnic and sectarian harmony.[6][5][7]


He is listed as a popular speaker in the 2013/2014 edition of the book, "The 500 Most Influential Muslims".[1]

In January 2014, Pakistani actress Veena Malik said her interaction with Tariq Jameel had positively changed her life, and that she would quit the show-biz industry.[8][9]

On 4 November 2014, he called on Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif at the latter's residence Jati Umra, and extended the invitation to participate in annual Tableeghi Ijtima to be held in Raiwind Markaz.[10]
