Haji Namdar Group (HNG), also known as Suppression of Vice and Promotion of Virtue and Local Taliban Movement, is a designated terrorist organisation in Pakistan based in Tirah.

In 1991, Haji Namdar left Tirah and moved to Saudi Arabia. Upon his return in 2003, he founded the Haji Namdar Group, enforcing Taliban-interpreted Islamic law. The Pakistani government designated HNG as a terrorist organisation on 30 June 2008. Namdar was assassinated on 13 August 2008, allegedly by militants loyal to Baitullah Mehsud.
