This party belongs to the Sunni (Ahl al-sunnah wa al-jama'ah) current, which in the subcontinent is often called "Barelvi". JUP was founded and headed until 2004 by the late Allama Khwaja Qamar ul Din Sialvi. After him Allama Shah Ahmad Noorani Siddiqi took over as president. After him, his son Shah Anas Noorani took charge of JUP. However, Anas Noorani resigned from the post of president in March 2008.[1]
