There is some dispute to whether Islami Chhatra Shibir was formed in 1941 or 1955. Regardless of the actual year of formation the group has its roots in British India and then in Pakistan in the form of the Jamaat-e-Islami. The group has received support from the parent organization and other similar organizations in Pakistan.
