Amader Shomoy online published false report to tarnish party image

Jamaat has no connection with any militant organizations, asserts Tasnim Alam

Central Publicity Department’s Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 4th January, 2018 protesting and gainsaying the false and baseless report of online news portal amadershomoy.com titled “জেএমবি-জামায়াত একই মুদ্রার এপিঠ-ওপিঠ”  (JMB and Jamaat are the two sides of the same coin).

“The aforesaid report of amadershomoy.com published on 4th January, 2018 is completely false and baseless. This concocted report has been published just to tarnish the image of Jamaat-e-Islami. 

Regarding this specific report, we are clearly of the view that, Jamaat has no connection with JMB or any of 36 militant organizations, which have been referred in the particular report. So no question is emanated about the funding of Jamaat-e-Islami to those organizations. The claim of having influence of Jamaat’s Ex-Ameer and former minister Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami behind the appointment of Mohammad Salafi, nephew of Asadullah Galib is far away from reality. This wrong and false information has given in that report to foil his image as well. 

Amadershomoy.com in this report also stated some false information implicating Jamaat-e-Islami with one Maulana Saidur Rahman who had been expelled from the party 25 years back and also with the so called chief of Rohingya Solidarity Army Salimullah. The entire report is fictitious. But the countrymen will not be confused with such concocted news report any more.

Finally, I am calling upon the authorities of amadershomoy.com to be refrained from publishing false and baseless report against Jamaat-e-Islami and expecting that they would publish this rejoinder properly to minimize mass confusion.”
