A group of amateur astronomers of Islamabad region gathered in November 2007 to work for the promotion of astronomy- related activities in an organized way. In its first meeting it was decided to name the group as Pakistan Astronomy Society (PAS) and later modified to PAS-Islamabad (PAS-ISB) to work as Islamabad chapter of PAS. It was hoped that other local, existing and future groups, may choose to become affiliates of Pakistan Astronomy Society.
