Dinajpur district Jamaat Ameer arrested; Professor Mujib demands immediate release
Nayeb-e-Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former member of the Parliament Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 1st April, 2017 protesting and condemning the unjustifiable arrest of Dinajpur district Jamaat Ameer Anowarul Islam.
“Police has arrested Dinajpur district Jamaat Ameer Anowarul Islam as a part of the government’s conspiracy to destroy the leadership of Jamaat-e-Islami. He is completely innocent.
The authoritarian government has been arresting and harassing the grassroots level leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami in order to stay in power unlawfully. This government has been detached from the people and now they are trying to hold the office forcefully. But no government could stay for long by carrying misrule. The incumbent government will also not be able to stay for long by dint of force. I am calling upon the countrymen to raise voice against the oppression, torture and misrule of the present government.
I am urging the authorities concerned to release all the detained leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami including Dinajpur district Jamaat Ameer Anowarul Islam immediately.”
