Mufti Munir Shakir (birthdate unknown) is a religious figure operating in northwestern Pakistan, and the founder of the militant group Lashkar-e-Islam.

Anti-Munir Shakir slogan in Rawalpindi

Shakir worked in Kurram Agency until 2004, when he was ejected by tribal elders following a mosque bombing.[1]

Radio ministry[edit]

Shakir's fame increased after he moved to Bara tehsil, Khyber Agency, where he established an FM pirate radio station. Using this vehicle, he began to promote his religious beliefs, based in Deobandi theology. Among his more controversial pronouncements was his alleged statement that opium is halal, provided it is produced and used for medical purposes[2][3]

Enmity with Pir Saifur Rahman[edit]

In 2005, Pir Saifur Rahman, a supporter of the more moderate hanafi barelvi school of Islam, established his own FM pirate radio station to compete with Shakir's station. Rivalry between the two clerics increased, causing tribal elders to denounce the two in December 2005 for fomenting sectarian tension. Both clerics then went into hiding, with Shakir handing control of his radio station and Lashkar-e-Islam organization to Mangal Bagh. The hostilities peaked around March 29, 2006, when "hundreds" of Shakir's followers gathered in the Badshahkili neighborhood of Bara tehsil to attack Rahman's followers.[4]

Role in Lashkar-e-Islam[edit]

In 2004, Shakir founded the organization Lashkar-e-Islam. Shortly thereafter, he was ejected from Bara tehsil, and turned over control of the organization to local driver Mangal Bagh.
