One of the oldest and most influential Muslim organisations in the country, the Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind on Saturday formally split, with the faction led by Maulana Mahmood Madani claiming to be the real Jamiat, dismissing the other as "null and void".

The organisation dating back to the pre-independence era has been marred by continuous internal rivalry, which became public when Mahmood, its General Secretary, came out in the open against President Maulana Arshad Madani, who was later expelled from the body by a working committee meeting of the Jamiat on March 6.

Arshad Madani, in turn, had formed a Jamiat Executive Committee, claiming it to be the real Jamiat.

In a meeting of the Central Managing Committee (CMC) on Saturday, hundreds of representatives from 14 state units of the organisation elected working President Qari Mohammad Usman as its President and Maulana Mahmood Madani as its General Secretary.

The procedure for ratification of expulsion and new election was conducted before the two observers Justice (retd) Nassmuddin Siddiqui and ITPO General Manager Safdar Hussain Khan.

The CMC, the highest-decision making body of the Jamiat, also dismissed Maulana Arshad Madani and his supporters from primary membership of the organisation.

"Maulana Arshad Madani was involved in anti-Jamiat activities. He had dissolved elected units and disintegrated its democratic structure to establish his personal rule," said the CMC resolution.
