Jamaat strongly protests Ittefaq’s false report titled “illegal arms storage increasing”
Tuesday, 03 July 2012
Jamaat-e-Islami central publicity affairs secretary Prof Tasneem Alam has strongly protested and condemned a news item titled “illegal arms storage increasing” published in the Daily Ittefaq on June 2 blaming Jamaat-Shibir that they are using such arms.
In a statement on June 2, Prof Tasneem Alam said that the news item stating that ‘Jamaat cadres are using illegal arms, and different arms including rifles, stain-gun and machine gun are in the hands of Shibir cadres’ is totally baseless and fabricated.
He also termed it as imagination of the reporter concerned. There is no relation of the news item with the reality.
Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatra Shibir believe in democratic politics and don’t believe in politics of weapons. Rather they have been protesting such politics of arms, he added.
So, there is question of usage of arms and keeping it by the Jamaat-shibir.
Jamaat leader alleged that the false report was published in an ill-motive to tarnish image of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatra Shibir.
Tasnim Alam called upon the concerned reporter of the Daily Ittefaq to refrain from writing such imaginary news about Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatra Shibir.
He also hoped that Ittefaq authorities will publish this rejoinder at the sameplace of the daily to resolve the created confusion.
