He joined BJP in 1996 and over the years worked closely with the youth and minority wings of the party.
The year 2005 eventually witnessed his advent in active politics. Thanks to the face value he had earned due to his benevolent nature, he convincingly won the Nagar Nigam Kota elections and served as a ward corporator from 2004-2009. His hard work and close proximity with the then Chief Minister of the state, Smt. Vasundhara Raje Scindia helped him earn the post of State President for BJP Minority Wing. This four year tenure not only helped him create a bigger aura for himself but also allowed him to show his commitment to the party. He tirelessly worked during the 2014 state elections and played a pivotal role in garnering the minority votes for BJP. His go getter kind of persona did not go unnoticed and he was promoted as the National Minister for the BJP Minority Wing (2015-2018). As the scope of work widened, Amin grabbed the opportunity with both hands. His meteoric rise amongst the minority base of the country did help the party on several occasions.
The year 2016, witnessed Amin Pathan deservingly taking the chair of the Rajasthan State Haj Committee (State Minister). The word has it that this was the time when the holy pilgrims for Haj travel almost reported no issues. His easy approachability to the masses made him a cynosure of many eyes. This further augmented his benevolent aura and he became a known name inside the political lobbies. His term lasted for three years wherein he selflessly served the masses.
Amin, wholeheartedly thanks Sh. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi for the unconditional support he bestowed on him during his tenure. He further adds, Naqvi ji was very particular about the well being of each and every pilgrim. He made sure that all activities were taken care of without any hindrances.
Post providing his services as Chairperson of Hajj Committee (Govt. of Rajasth), he currently is the Chairman of the holy shrine Dargah Khwaja Sahab, Ajmer for the past four years. The apex body of the shrine reports directly to the Ministry of Minority Affairs - Govt. of India.
Amin recently completed four years at this role, which in itself is a testimony of the great work values he possesses. Over the years, the Shrine has witnessed monumental renovation and construction projects including 188 restrooms for women and creation of the 'Silver Katahra' at Astana Sharif, a new fountain, and the repair of Nizam Gate and AkbariMasjid. Also, in collaboration with Ajmer District Administration, Anjuman Society and Dargah Diwan he has tirelessly worked towards providing good facilities to Dargah Shareef and all the pilgrims.
