Police arrest Shatkania Upazila’s elected Chairman and local Jamaat leader Jashim Uddin; Dr. Taher condemns
Tuesday, 21st June, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former member of the Parliament Dr. Syed Abdullah Mohammad Taher has issued the following statement on 21st June, 2016 condemning the unjust arrest of Chittagong district’s Shatkania Upazila Chairman and local Jamaat leader Jashim Uddin and Pabna district town Chhatrashibir secretary Badiuzzaman on last 20th June.

“The government became afraid of the extreme popularity and arrested Chittagong district’s Shatkania Upazila Chairman and local Jamaat leader Jashim Uddin unlawfully.

Mr. Jashim Uddin and Pabna district town Chhatrashibir secretary Badiuzzaman have been arrested in connection with a false case as a part of political harassment. The government has been arresting the leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir across the country. The repression and torture of the government exceeded all the previous records. Even the elected public representatives are not spared from such brutal oppression. I am urging the countrymen to take stand against the torture and repression of the government.

I am calling upon the authorities concerned to release all the innocent leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir including Chittagong district’s Shatkania Upazila Chairman and local Jamaat leader Jashim Uddin immediately.”
