Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed has issued the following statement on 30th April, 2016 demanding immediate unconditional release of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer, veteran religious scholar and former minister Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami.

“The government is busy in plotting deep and heinous conspiracy against Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami as they failed to tackle him politically.  The authority has intentionally and unlawfully kept Jamaat Ameer imprisoned to attain their ill political interest.

Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami is a renowned politician, veteran religious scholar and former minister. He is one of the pioneers of the democratic movement of the country and top leader of 20 party alliances. He has played significant role in country’s different democratic movement and the movement for securing people’s voting rights. While serving the nation for two times as Parliament members and 5 years as a cabinet minister, he has worked really to institutionalize democracy. In addition, while discharging duties as Agriculture and Industries Minister, he made major development in these two sectors and led the nation towards progress and development. As a minister, he worked honestly and carried effort to free the nation from the clutches of corruption. He always acted positively for the sake of the nation and took stand for national unity and solidarity.

Being failed to tackle this great leader, the government has filed one after one false case against him and kept him detained for last 6 years. He became critically ill for long term imprisonment. The old aged leader Maulana Nizami has been suffering from many complicated diseases. He should be released at once on humanitarian ground.

Maulana Nizami is completely innocent. The government has kept him behind the bar by lodging false and concocted cases against him. The government has initiated brutal conspiracy against this veteran politician. The countrymen will not accept any heinous conspiracy with his life. I am calling upon the countrymen to resist the conspiracy which is going on against Maulana Nizami.

Maulana Nizami is passing days miserably inside the prison. He should be released quickly for the sake of the nation. I am urging the concerned authorities to release him immediately.”
