In 1947, after the independence of Pakistan, thousands of Memon families migrated to this newly born state from Kathiawar, Gujrat and other parts of the sub-continent. The majority of them settled in the province of Sindh, particularly in Karachi, Hyderabad & Sukkur and established their own Jamats after the names of their native towns and villages which they left in India, with a view to preserve their identity as well as to be helpful to their less fortunate brethren.
In 1951, some leading Memon personalities including, Mr. Muhammad Ali Rangoonwala, Mr. SulemanBhura, Mr. UmerFazil Farooq, Mr. Haji Abdul ShakoorTumbi, Mr. Abdul Aziz Sagar, Mr. Muhammad SiddiqKukaswadia, Mr. Haji Abdul latifDhedhi and others with solidarity, welfare and development of the community as a whole in mind got together and considered the possibilities of uniting the entire community on one single platform by forming a central and federal parent body of the Memon Jamats to represent them all at national level and raise their voice in government.
