Allama Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi

Then, TNFJ body renamed the party as Tehreek Jafaria Pakistan (TJP) in early 1990s.
Under biased policy, military ruler General Pervez Musharraf imposed ban on TJP to gag leading Shia Islamic party. That regime also put senior Shia Islamic scholar Allama Sajid behind the bars on false charges.
However, he continues to wage legal battle for TJP and also leads supporters as Islamic Tehreek and SUC leader.
