Thursday, 02 August 2012
Jamaat-e-Islami Acting Secretary General Dr Shafiqur Rahman has strongly condemned and protested the formation of charge against 18-party alliance’s 46 leaders including Jamaat Acting Ameer Makbul Ahmad and BNP Acting Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir based on totally false allegations against them in a vehicle torching case.
In a statement on August 1, he also strongly criticized and protested the government’s decision of holding trail of the politically motivated case at the speedy trial court.
A Dhaka court on Tuesday indicted the alliance’s 46 leaders on charges of torching a vehicle near the Prime Minister’s Office during the country wide strike on April 29 last.
Dr Rahman said that the incumbent government has been hatching conspiracy against the opposition leaders in an ill motive to gain political interests.
He ruled out any relation of the leaders with the vehicle torching allegations and termed the charges totally false and fabricated.
Failing to face the opposition parties politically, the government started hatching conspiracy against them. It wanted to perpetuate its tenure by repressing the opposition movement.
He warned the government saying that the false cases couldn’t impede the opposition’s movements.
Country’s people will no longer tolerate the undemocratic and tyrant attitude of the government.
Dr Shafiqur Rahman called upon the people to protest the government’s ill motive through massive movement.
The Jamaat leader also urged the government to immediately withdraw all sorts of fabricated cases filed against the 18-party coalition leaders and activists.
