Hamidur Rahman Azad denounces the false report of Kaler Kantha
Saturday, 09th July, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 9th July, 2016 gainsaying the false information in a report titled  “আড়াই বছর  ধরে নিখোঁজ ছিলেন শোলাকিয়া থেকে ধৃত আবু মুক্তাদিল”  (Abu Muktadil, nabbed from Sholakia has been missing for two and half years) published in the online version of Bengali Daily ‘Kaler Kantha’ which stated quoting the comments of Dinajpur district’s Ghoraghat police station’s officer in charfe Nuruzzaman Chowdhury that ‘the man Abu Muktadil alias Shariful alias Shafiul Islam Shohan’s father Hie Prodhan is involved with the politics of Jamaat-e-Islami.’

“Jamaat-e-Islami has no connection with Mir. Hie Prodhan whose son namely Abu Muktadil alias Shariful alias Shafiul Islam Shohan has been arrested as a suspect of Sholakia attack incident. We do not know any man of such name.

The concocted relation between Jamaat-e-Islami and Sholakia attack incident’s prime suspect Abu Muktadil alias Shariful alias Shafiul Islam Shohan’s father Mr. Hie Prodhan has been discovered and promulgated in a bid to tarnish the image of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami. Our own assessment and study further revealed that Mr. Hie Prodhan and his entire family are extremely hostile towards Jamaat-e-Islami.  

I am urging the authority of the online version of Daily Kaler Kantha to be refrained from carrying out such baseless propaganda against Jamaat-e-Islami and expecting that they would publish this protest statement properly to lessen mass confusion.”
