Tasnim Alam criticizes Daily Janakantha for continuing baseless propaganda against Jamaat-e-Islami

Central Publicity Affairs Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor Md. Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 14 March 2019 protesting and gainsaying the false and baseless propaganda against Jamaat-e-Islami that came up through a report of Daily Janakantha.

“The Daily Janakantha in a report published on 14 March have made severe propaganda against Jamaat-e-Islami and I am vehemently protesting such ill-efforts. Whatever is said in the report is extremely fictitious.  

Responding to such baseless propaganda, I want to assert that Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami has no contact with Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI. They did not specify any date and place but claimed about a meeting reportedly held in Jeddah of Saudi Arabia between ISI representative and a top brass of Jamaat-e-Islami. Daily Janakantha had published similar baseless report in different earlier occasions. We had protested against those reports as well. But the Daily Janakantha failed to demonstrate courage to publish those rejoinders. Even whatever they had stated in those reports, they could not prove any of those contents.

The Daily Janakantha has been continuing such propaganda by publishing false and baseless reports in order to create pressure on a party like Jamaat-e-Islami. We have nothing to say about these reports.

Under such circumstances, I am urging the authorities of Daily Janakantha to be refrained from publishing such baseless and hilarious report against Jamaat-e-Islami.
