“The government is arresting the leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and shooting bullet against the Chhatrashibir activists to make them critically injured in order to prolong its tyrannical rule.

Even the pious ladies with religious attires are not spared from the arrest drive of the government. Without any reason, the law enforcers have arrested 8 pious ladies from Komolganj Upazila of the Laxmipur district and caused huge sufferings to them. Police also unlawfully arrested Satkania municipality unit Jamaat President Md. Wazed Ali

In another incident, police had arrested arrested Jessore district’s Chowgacha Thana Chhatrashibir Secretary Israil Hossen and Literature Affair Secretary Ruhul Amin on 3rd August and shot bullet against them at 10 pm on 4th August. Both of them are completely innocent. The government has made them crippled. I am urging the concerned authorities to conduct proper investigation into the incident to ensure due punishment of the involved personnel.

Finally, I am calling upon the authorities to release all the detained leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir including Chittagong district’s Satkania municipality unit Jamaat President Md. Wazed Ali immediately.”
