Profile
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman is the son of Mufti Mahmud (Former provincial Chief Minister).
He is Ameer (President) of his political party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Assembly of 'Ulama-e-Islam). He is also the General Secretary of the Religious Alliance, Muttahidah Majlis-e-'Amal (Council of United Action) or MMA. He is originally from the Abdulkhel Banyala area in Dera Ismail Khan District of North-West Frontier Province, Pakistan. He serves as the opposition leader in the National Assembly of Pakistan.

Maulana Mufti Mahmood
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman is son of well known religious and political leader Maulana Mufti Mahmood. Due to mass public support and a large vote bank in the N.W.F.P, Southern Punjab,Baluchistan and in Interior Sindh, Maulana Mufti Mahmood was the lone leader in Pakistan who had defeated the then invincible Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in the 1970 general elections.

Political career
Of the four general elections that Fazl ur-Rahman contested since 1988 from his national assembly constituency, NA-18, he won two with convincing margins.

Election 1990 - 1993 - 1997

In the two he lost - in 1990 and 1997 - were, as his supporters put it, more because of the engineered results that entrusted heavy mandates to the Sharifs of Lahore on both the occasions. Fazal-ur-Rehman's politics, Fazl ur-Rahman's politics, like his father's, has been at odds with the Muslim League. The father was in Jama'at Ulema-i-Hind (Madani group) which shared the views of the Congress on the partition issue. Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman remained in the camp of the political alliances and parties that were opposed to Nawaz Sharif's League. Only once did he contest the election in alliance with the PML, in 1990, and then too he lost. He went to make an alliance with Pakistan People Party in 1993 elections.

Election 2002
In the general elections of 2002, he managed to bring the religious political parties of Pakistan from a wide spectrum of sects, on one platform. The masses of the country embraced the idea, as the coalition paid off in the elections.

Election 2008
In February 18, 2008 elections, Fazal-ur-Rehman lost his seat from his home town Dera Ismail Khan. He, however, won a seat from Bannu while his brother Maulana Atta ur Rehman won the National Assembly seat in Dera Ismail Khan kum Tank. His party JUI currently has 7 National Assembly seats, 14 seats in NWFP provincial assembly, and 10 and 2 in Baluchistan and Punjab Assembly. These were pretty good result, keeping in mind that only a small part of the coalition was contesting the election. His party lost around 20 provincial seats in NWFP by a few hundred votes. Securing, so many votes (and reasonable number of seats), as an individual party of the 6 parties MMA, is testimony to the popularity of previous MMA provincial government.

Property scandal

Recently Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman has been involved in property scandal.Maulana and his associates were allotted thousands of kanal of agriculture land in 2006 . (The News, Friday, November 07, 2008).
