Dr. Israr Ahmad - Famous Pakistani Religious Scholar. Dr. Israr Ahmed was a great Pakistani and a
Muslim religious scholar who is very well-known among Muslims
in Pakistan, India, the Middle East, and North America. Born
in East Punjab, (now part of Haryana) in India, the second son
of a government servant, he is the founder of the
Tanzeem-e-islami, an off-shoot of the Jamaat-e-Islami. He
currently has a daily show on Peace TV, a 24/7 Islamic channel
broadcast internationally, and until a recent controversy had
a program on Quran TV (QTV (ARY)).

Dr. Israr Ahmed is skeptical of the efficacy of "parliamentary politics of give-and-take" in establishing an "Islamic politico-socio-economic system" as implementing this system is a "revolutionary process.
