Hamidur Rahman Azad condemns the unjust arrest of Shatkhira district Jamaat leader

Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 18th July, 2017 protesting the unjustifiable arrest of Shatkhira district Jamaat's Assistant Secretary Azizur Rahman.

The government has arrested Shatkhira district Jamaat's Assistant Secretary Azizur Rahman just to attain its ill political interest. He is completely innocent.

Being failed to tackle Jamaat ideologically, the government has been continuously arresting Jamaat members and activists nationwide. Ruling party's student wing, Chhatra League is murdering its own activists in order to establish their unlawful hegemony and dominance. But instead of taking actions against them, the authority is detaining innocent Jamaat members and activists from their houses, offices and business institutions regularly in order to achieve their political interest.

The government is also obstructing Jamaat to conduct its regular peaceful party activities. The government has to face the people's conscience for their brutal autocratic behaviours.

Finally I am urging the authorities concerned to release all the detained party members and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami including Shatkhira district Jamaat's Assistant Secretary Azizur Rahman immediately.
