Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud re-arrested from the jail gate; Acting Secretary General demands immediate release
Monday, 25th April, 2016

Acting Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 25th April, 2016 protesting and condemning the re-arrest of central working committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and Dhaka city Jamaat’s Assistant Secretary Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud from the Dhaka central jail gate on 8.10 pm on 24th April defying the specific order of the High Court.

“Defying the order of the High Court, the government has showed disrespect and humiliation towards the judiciary by re-arresting central working committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and Dhaka city Jamaat’s Assistant Secretary Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud from the Dhaka central jail gate on 24th April.

 

Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud has become the worst victim of government’s political vengeance. The government has oppressed him severely by keeping him behind the bar for last 19 months in connection with several politically motivated false cases. No rule of law and justice is prevailing in the country now. By dint of power and force, the authority is carrying out autocracy and violating the human rights frequently. I am calling upon the local and the international human rights bodies and the countrymen to protest against the suppression and torture of the government.

 

I am urging the concerned authorities to stop repression and to release Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud immediately.”
