Pakistan Badminton Federation (PBF) is the governing body for the sport of badminton in Pakistan. It was formed in 1953 to promote badminton in country. Nawab Iftikhar Mamdot became the first President and Mr. Sultan F. Hussain became the first Secretary General of the Federation respectively.[1]

In April 2011, the BWF barred the PBF to participate in the international events, due to the existence of two factions within the governing body.[2] BWF was also "concerned about the PBF’s involvement in human trafficking and bogus entries in international events."[3] In 2014, BWF lifted a ban from PBF, and in June 2014, PBF elects the new national badminton body.[4][5]
