Tasnim Alam rejects the false news of Daily Manabzamin against Jamaat-e-Islami on Rohingya issue

Central Publicity Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor Md. Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 11th September, 2017 protesting and gainsaying the baseless propaganda of Daily Manabzamin implicating Jamaat-e-Islami through the report titled “রোহিঙ্গাদের নিয়ে নির্দয় বাণিজ্য” (Cruel business with the Rohingya issue).

“The Daily Manabzamin has conducted a worse ever propaganda against Jamaat-e-Islami as they printed some false and baseless information in a report titled “রোহিঙ্গাদের নিয়ে নির্দয় বাণিজ্য” (Cruel business with the Rohingya issue). Severely protesting the report, I would like to assert that no question is emanated for Jamaat-e-Islami to get involved with any sort of cruel business with the oppressed Rohingya peoples.

Whatever is written implicating Jamaat-e-Islami in the aforesaid report nothing but intentional propaganda. The report also intentionally quoted the reference of Palongkhali Union’s ward number one’s member Absar’s statement just to shift the blame on Jamaat-e-Islami. The problem with the Rohingya Muslims is a great humanitarian crisis. No one should do business with this crisis. We want to clarify; the concerned reporter’s comment on Jamaat-e-Islami is not only false but also ridiculous.

I am urging the authority of Daily Manabzamin to be refrained from publishing false and confusing report against Jamaat-e-Islami and expecting that they would publish this rejoinder properly to dissolve the public confusion.
