Dr. Taher rejects the claim of Sheershanews; no negotiation or discussion held between Awami League and Jamaat-e-Islami
Tuesday, 03rd May, 2016
Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Dr. Syed Abdullah Mohammad Taher has issued the following statement on 3rd May, 2016 gainsaying the false and baseless report of online Bengali news portal ‘Sheershanews’ published on 2nd May, 2016 titled “জামায়াতকে পাশে চায় সরকার!” (Government wants Jamaat by their side).
“The report of Sheershanews is completely bogus. It has no basis. In response to that report I want to affirm that, the incumbent government is busy in hatching multi-dimensional conspiracy against Jamaat-e-Islami. So no question is raised at all of holding any discussion between Jamaat and the government about managing Jamaat-e-Islami as the opposition party in exchange of just 50 parliamentary seats.
The report of the Sheershanews also referred a meeting with the Awami League in Turkey on 5th January of 2014. It is completely a sheer lie. No meet had ever taken place between Awami League and Jamaat in Turkey. So the subsequent proposal of making Jamaat-e-Islami as the opposition party in exchange of 70 parliamentary seats is also ridiculous.
No meeting also held between Awami League and Jamaat-e-Islami during the tenure of the then US ambassador to Bangladesh Dan W Mozena. So no question is emanated of my participation in the alleged meeting. The entire information is hilarious and confusing.
When a deep rooted conspiracy going on with the life of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer, renowned religious scholar and former minister Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami, at that time, why Sheershanews portal is publishing such baseless and confusing news, it is a burning question to the people.
I am urging the authority of online news portal Sheershanews to be refrained from publishing such baseless report and expecting that they would publish this rejoinder properly to minimize the mass confusion.”
