Early careerJamaat-e-Islami1975-2007

Chaudhary started his political career in the Jamaat-e-Islami student wing and had gradually progressed up the ranks of the party; he became national leader of the Jamaat student wing. Chaudhary and General Zia-ul-Haq were initially on good terms as Zia was keen to placate the religious right.[3] Early career  The death of General Zia in 1988 breathed new life into Pakistan's faltering democracy; during this period Chaudhary served as deputy mayor of Lahore in the early 1990s. Chaudhary continued to rise in the party's ranks and by 1998 he was appointed to the Central Executive Committee (the top decision-making body of the party) Chaudhary continued to dissent in the 1990s from official party line on many cases; he voted against the Jamaat forming a coalition with the Pakistan Muslim League (N) for the 1999 elections while on the Central Executive Committee. [4] Political career He left the party in 2006. Upon the death of Qazi Hussain Ahmed (the man who Chaudhary fell out with over his moderate approach compared to Ahmed's more conservative approach) it became evidently clear the two men had managed to reconcile their differences at some point while Chaudhary had still defected to PTI.[5] Ijaz chaudhary in   meeting
