Deendar Anjuman is an Islamic organization based in Karnataka, India. Founded in 1924, It is banned by the Government of India for unlawful activities. Deendar Anjuman is alleged to be behind bomb blasts of churches in South India in the year of 2000.

It was first banned in 2001 and thereafter the ban was extended periodically. In its notification in the Gazette of India on Aug 29, 2007, the home ministry declared Deendar Anjuman "an unlawful association" as its activities could "create tension among the Christians and other communities with a view to disrupting the social fabric and tarnish the secular fabric credential of the country".

The Deendar Anjuman sect was founded in 1924 by Hazrat Moulana Syed Siddique Kibla in the Gulbarga district of Karnataka. It has branches and followers in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. The organization is now headed by Zia-ul-Hassan who is the oldest son of the sect’s founder Syed Siddique Hussain. Zia-ul-Hassan is a Pakistani citizen and visits Hyderabad almost every year.

Also this group is involved in church blasts across neighboring Andhra Pradesh and Goa.
