Acting Secretary General expresses concern over devastating blaze of Karwan Bazar market
Tuesday, 03rd May, 2016

Acting Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 3rd May, 2016expressing deep concern at the huge damage and destruction caused by a huge blaze in Hasina market in Karwan Bazar of the capital on 1st May night.

Many businessmen became empty handed as over 200 shops burnt to ashes in this blaze incident.  Such a blaze during
 midnight in the central capital is really mysterious.  


This blaze has destroyed many establishments and hundreds of traders and small entrepreneurs became ruined and bankrupted. The government should investigate into the incident properly and take due punitive measures against those personnel who are responsible for this devastating blaze.

I am urging the authorities concerned to provide due compensation to the victims for their quick rehabilitation. I am also extending my deep sympathy to the affected businesses men and their families.
