Members of the All India Jamiat Ahle Hadees governing body sat
today in New Delhi to elect the president and other office bearers

"The members of the All India Jamiat
Ahle Hadees governing body today unanimously elected Hafiz Yehya
as the National President and Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi as the
Secretary General", Dr Saeed Faizee, President of the Jamiat Ahle
Hadees Maharashtra said while speaking to ummid.com.
This will be the second term for
Hafiz Yehya as president and Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi as Secretary
General. They were earlier elected to the posts in 2007.
The only exception is the election
of Vakeel Pervez as the treasurer of the All India Jamiat Ahle

Hafiz Yehya and Asghar Ali Imam Mehdi could not even field
candidates to oppose them and force head count.
