Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind or (, , translation: Organization of Indian Scholars) is one of the leading Islamic organizations in India. It was founded in 1919 by Abdul Mohasim Sajjad, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Ahmed Saeed Dehlvi and Abdul Bari Firangi Mehli. Maulana Mehmud Hasan, a leading Islamic scholar of that time, was the guiding force behind the initiative.

The Jamiat's involvement in the Khilafat Movement brought them close to Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, a link that is existent to this day. Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind opposed the creation of a separate Muslim state of Pakistan.

The Jamiat has an organizational network which is spread all over India. They also have an Urdu daily Al-Jamiyat.The Jamiat has propounded a theological basis for its nationalistic philosophy. Their thesis is that Muslims and non-Muslims have entered upon a mutual contract in India since independence, to establish a secular state. The Constitution of India represents this contract. This is known in Urdu as a mu'ahadah. Accordingly as the Muslim community's elected representatives supported and swore allegiance to this mu'ahadah so it is the duty of Indian Muslims is to keep loyalty to the Constitution. This mu'ahadah is similar to a previous similar contract signed between the Muslims and the Jews in Medina.Islam in Modern History. By Wilfred Cantwell Smith, Pg 285.. The Hindu.
