Tasnim Alam rejects the false report of Daily Janakantha against Jamaat-e-Islami

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Central Publicity Department’s Secretary Professor Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 11th October, 2017 protesting and gainsaying the false report of Daily Janakantha titled “নাশকতা ও সরকার পতনের ছক কষে নেমেছে জামায়াত” (Jamaat has plotted conspiracy to create anarchy in order to dethrone the government).

“Whatever is said in the report of Daily Janakantha about Jamaat-e-Islami is baseless. It is totally lying and concocted.

Responding to the baseless report of Daily Janakantha, I want to assert that Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami sincerely believes in systematic and democratic trend of politics. Jamaat always hates and denounces the politics of anarchy, violence and terrorism. So no question can be emanated accusing Jamaat-e-Islami of plotting conspiracy to create anarchy for dethroning the government. Quoting some intelligence sources, the report claimed that Jamaat has connection with 50 militant groups including JMB, Harkatul Jihad and Hizbut Tahrir- which is completely false. We even did not hear the names of all these groups. So the allegation of having links with them is totally a farce. It is a long traditional habit of Daily Janakantha to publish false reports against Jamaat-e-Islami. But the countrymen would not be misguided with such propaganda.

In this backdrop, I am urging the authorities of Daily Janakantha to be refrained from publishing false and baseless reports against Jamaat-e-Islami.”
