Hamidur Rahman Azad disapproves the false reports of Daily Janakantha against Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir
Tuesday, 14th June, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 14th June, 2016 gainsaying the false and fictitious reports published in Bengali daily ‘Janakantha’ titled “জঙ্গী তৎপরতার পেছনে জামায়াত, উগ্রপন্থীরা” (Jamaat, extremists behind ongoing militant activities) and “গোয়েন্দা রিপোর্ট বলছে শিবিরই করছে গুপ্তহত্যা” (Intelligence report claims, Shibir behind secret killings).

“The aforesaid reports of Daily Janakantha are completely false and concocted. Responding to those aforesaid reports, I want to assert that, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami believes in democratic trend of transparent politics. The party sincerely hates the politics of militancy, tendon cutting or hacking to death. So no question is raised at all of having any involvement of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir with such criminal offences.

Neither Jamaat-e-Islami nor Chhatrashibir has any nexus with the murder of blogger engineer Rajib Haider Shovon on any of the recent murder incidents. The Daily Janakantha published these two reports in order to tarnish the image of Jamaat and Chhatrashibir. The general would not be confused with such false and baseless reports.

Jamaat-e-Islami has issued statements protesting and condemning all the recent murder incidents and demanding the punishment of the killers. Even though, who are publishing report implicating Jamaat-e-Islami with these incidents are true believer and practitioner of yellow journalism.

I am urging the authority of Daily Janakantha to be refrained from publishing such baseless and biased report against Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir.”
