After 8 days of arrest, Jhinaidah district’s Jamaat leader’s dead body found; Acting Ameer condemns; calls for judicial investigation
Friday, 12 August 2016
Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed has issued the following statement on 12th August, 2016 protesting and condemning the brutal murder of Jhinaidah district’s Harinakundu Upazila’s Roghunathpur Union Jamaat Ameer Maulana Idris Ali by the policemen.

“After 8 days of arresting Jamaat-e-Islami leader Maulana Idris Ali, policemen have killed him and now as a part of ill propaganda, they are claiming that deceased has been killed in a mishap. We have no word to condemn such terror acts of the police forces.

Earlier, some plain cloth people in the name of police forces picked up Jhinaidah district’s Harinakundu Upazila’s Roghunathpur Union Jamaat Ameer Maulana Idris Ali in front of the Ramchandrapur police camp under Shoilokupa Upazila. Since then, they have denied the arrest claim. His family held a press meets on last 9th August demanding his trace and immediate release. But police paid no heed to their call.

Finally his dead body has been found from a roadside area of the Jorpukuria area of the Harinakundu Sadar. Now they are claiming that he has been killed in a mishap. Maulana Idris Ali was a teacher of a Madrasa (religious school) and the Imam of the Mohishgari Mosque. He was also a popular leader. 

After picking him up, police detained him for last 8 days and finally by murdering him they have violated the domestic law, constitution and the human rights. Earlier, in different occasions, police also murdered several leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir in Jhinaidah district. The law enforcers are abducting and murdering Jamaat-Shibir men nationwide. Not only that, police is detaining innocent peoples and keeping them in the police stations, they are claiming huge amount of money. 

The government has to take the liabilities of all these misdeeds of the law enforcers. I am calling upon the concerned authorities to conduct a judicial investigation into the murder of Maulana Idris Ali who was in police custody and also to bring the kills to the book for ensuring exemplary punishment.  

I am praying to Almighty Allah for accepting Maulana Idris Ali as a martyr. I am extending deep sympathy to his mournful family and praying wholeheartedly so that they can overcome this irreparable shock.”
