Rajshahi University Professor murdered in broad daylight; Dr. Taher condemns; demands exemplary punishment of the killers
Saturday, 23rd April, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Dr. Syed Abdullah Mohammad Taher has issued the following statement on 23rd April, 2016 protesting and condemning the brutal murder of Rajshahi University’s English Department’s Professor A F M Rezaul Karim Siddique by the attack of the miscreants this morning.

“The brutal murder incident of Rajshahi University’s English Department’s Professor A F M Rezaul Karim Siddique once again proved that public life and property is no more secured now.

The countrymen have been observing that one after one sensitive and brutal murder is being taken place in the country. The murder incidents are happening frequently in broad day light as the previous similar incidents have not been investigated and prosecuted properly.

The law and order situation has been deteriorated severely as the law enforcing bodies have been kept engaged in tackling the opposition forces. To get rid of the situation, the usage of the law enforcers in unlawful and unethical tasks must be stopped. The law enforcement bodies should not be used for attaining political interest. They should be given chance and space to work their professional duties efficiently.

I am urging the authorities concerned to conduct proper investigation into the murder of Rajshahi University’s English Department’s Professor A F M Rezaul Karim Siddique and to punish the killers sternly.

I am also praying for the salvation of the departed soul of Dr. A F M Rezaul Karim Siddique and extending my deep sympathy to his mournful families.”
