Jamaat leader Abdul Zabbar protests the false news of Daily Kaler Kantha
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s central Publicity Affairs Committee’s member and party’s central Majlish-e-Shura member Md. Abdul Zabbar has issued the following statement on 13 September 2021 protesting and gainsaying a report of Daily Kaler Kantha titled ‘এহসান গ্রুপের প্রতারণায় তোপের মুখে ১২০০ কর্মী’ (Ehsan Group’s deception puts 1200 workers in the face of the fire) which states completely sheer lie implicating Jamaat-e-Islami.
Whatever is stated in the report of Daily Kaler Kantha titled ‘এহসান গ্রুপের প্রতারণায় তোপের মুখে ১২০০ কর্মী’ (Ehsan Group’s deception puts 1200 workers in the face of the fire) is totally false and concocted. The report implicated Jamaat-e-Islami unnecessarily in order to tarnish the good image of the party and simultaneously to create confusion among the masses. The report claimed the accused Ragib Ahsan’s father and father-in-law and in his entire family are Jamaat supporter and several Jamaat activists are working in his company. This information is also not correct. No question can be emanated of having any nexus between Jamaat-e-Islami and the accused Ragib Ahsan. We are vehemently condemning the false report of Daily Kaler Kantha.
We think, whoever is using the religious sentiment to deceive people is committing a severe crime. We are condemning such activities. I am urging the authority not to publish such false news in future. I further expect that they would publish this rejoinder properly to minimize public confusion.
