Rafiqul Islam Khan refutes the allegation of journalist Anjan Roy against Jamaat and Chhatrashibir leaders
Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maulana Rafiqul Islam Khan has issued the following statement on 15 December, 2019 in regards to a news published in some online news portal which claimed that journalist Anjan Roy has filed a GD with Ramna police station considering Daily Sangram’s editor Abul Asad, Jamaat leader Dr. Shafiqur Rahman and Maqbul Ahmad, Islamic Chhatrashibir’s President Mobarak Hossain and its Secretary General Sirajul Islam as threat for his life.
“Though some news portal published a news that journalist Anjan Roy has filed a GD with Ramna police station considering Daily Sangram’s editor Abul Asad, Jamaat leader Dr. Shafiqur Rahman and Maqbul Ahmad, Islamic Chhatrashibir’s President Mobarak Hossain and its Secretary General Sirajul Islam as threat for his life. We even do not know whether the information is correct or not. But if it so, we want to assert that this general diary is clearly an intentional and politically motivated move. Journalist Anjan Roy filed a general diary against Jamaat and Shibir leaders just to harass and subdue them politically.
Our clear view in this regard is, Jamaat and Chhatrashibir have no nexus with the alleged threat to journalist Anjan Roy. In the long history of these two organizations, there is not a single evidence of making any such threat against anybody. Jamaat and Chhatrashibir do not believe in such unjustified, immoral and undemocratic politics. So, the claim of journalist Anjan Roy is invalid and far away from reality. Jamaat and Chhatrashibir believe in the systematic and democratic trend of politics. So, these two organizations have no way to give such threat. It is equally unreasonable to think that a veteran journalist and editor of national daily like Abul Asad could make any such threat.
We hope that journalist Anjan Roy would be refrained from making such baseless and concocted allegations against Jamaat and Chhatrashibir leaders and also against the authority of Bengali daily Sangram.”
