Name suggests it is an Islamic organization. When it was founded, prior to independence, by Maududi - celebrated Islamic scholar of subcontinent - its name was Jamaat-e-Islaami. After independence, Maududi along with his organization moved to Pakistan; what was left in India of that organization called it self 'Jamaat-e-Islami Hind'.
This separation is only to fool Indians and Hindus because Jamaat-e-Islaami (one must read this) does not hide its original objective of bringing entire Indian subcontinent under Islamic rule (Sharia Law) as once it was, at least according to them, by using all means available, violence and stealth jihad (meaning peaceful activities like conversion through false propaganda, high birth rates and immigration and probably love jihad).
But, Jamaat-e-Islaami Hind wants to make India an Islamic republic only through peaceful means as it states in its website :
If Muslims have faith in the efficacy of Islam, which has been a potent force for the good of mankind throughout the ages, it is not only the necessary demand of their faith, but also their altruistic duty to propagate its principles, especially at a time when the country is in search of a stable basis for building the edifice of its life.It belligerently states constitution - in its defense - giving freedom of religion which includes propagation and proselytizing of one's religion. Should principle of freedom of religion justify changing very nature of a society? Should Muslims succeed to turn Indian in to Muslim majority republic under Sharia using principle of freedom of religion, that very principle of freedom of religion comes to an end under Sharia.
In summary, Muslims and organizations like Jamaat-e-Islaami Hind use our own freedoms and laws to end freedom completely.
Is Jamaat-e-Islaami Hind a radical Islamic organization? Sure, it has a radical agenda but very much a part of their religion, meaning there is nothing really radical about it. However, Congress(I) says it is a radical Islamic outfit (here, here):
The Congress, heading the Opposition United Democratic Front (UDF), in Kerala today urged the CPI (M) to come out with its stance on clinching a pact with radical Muslim outfit Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) for the April 13 Assembly poll in the state. Talking to newspersons Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) General Secretary M K Raghavan, MP, said CPI (M), which also accused the outfit of accepting foreign funds, owed a clarification to the secret pact in the wake of the resignation of JeI Political Secretary Hammeed Vanimel on the issue.Then, why doesn't Congress(I) ban it? It becomes a different story. Meanwhile DNA reported:
Influential Muslim outfit Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is all set to test waters in politics by launching a party, an official announcement on which is expected on Monday.
"We are forming a political outfit namely Welfare Party. Though Jamaat is launching the party, the outfit will be an independent body," the Jamaat's convenor S Q R Ilyas said.
A formal announcement in this regard is expected on Monday when the Jamaat is holding a conference.
"During the Monday conference, we will discuss on politics and the announcement could be made on that day," Ilyas told PTI.
He said people need a new political option as corruption in this field is rampant and so "we decided to form a party, which will be devoid of corrupt leaders."
He asserted the party will not only represent Muslims but also other minorities and weaker sections of the society. "We will also raise issues of national interest and inclusive development."...
}}}National interest and inclusive development .......!
What about following verses, their meaning and how they were understood for over 1300 years by Islamic scholars and Muslims?
SHAKIR (4:53): Or have they [non-Muslims] a share in the kingdom? But then they would not give to people even the speck in the date stone.
Rodwell (4:141): .......and God will by no means make a way for the infidels over the believers.
