Comilla North district Ameer and 7 other party men arrested; Secretary General protests

Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 14th October 2018 protesting and condemning the unjustifiable arrests of 8 Jamaat leaders and activists of Comilla North organizational district including district Ameer Maulana Ali Ashraf Khan.

“Police has arrested 8 Jamaat men including Comilla North organizational district Ameer Maulana Ali Ashraf Khan unjustifiably. The government has arrested Maulana Ali Ashraf Khan as a part of their conspiracy to ingrain one party rule and also to destroy the leadership of Jamaat-e-Islami. I am vehemently condemning the incident.

Arresting someone unreasonably in connection with a false case is a complete violation of rule of law and human rights. Actually, the government is arresting the leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami just to prolong its fascist rule. I am calling upon the countrymen to raise voice against such fascist activities of the government. 

I am also urging the authorities concerned to release all the detained leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami including Maulana Ali Ashraf Khan immediately.”
