Tehrik-e-Jafria

The Tehrik-e-Jafria Pakistan (TJP) is a relatively minor organisation. Under the leadership of Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi, it primarily aims at organising Shia resistance to Sunni extremism but is also involved in sectarian killing.

Like the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, the TJP has twice been banned but continues to operate under different names.
