Tasnim Alam rejects the false report of Daily Jugantor; demand of banning Jamaat-e-Islami is unlawful, he asserts
Tuesday, 21st June, 2016

Central Publicity Affairs Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Professor Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 21st June, 2016 protesting the false report published in Bengali Daily ‘Jugantor’ titled “জামায়াত নিষিদ্ধে টালবাহানা” (Effort goes on to ban Jamaat).

The report which has been published in Daily Jugantor is completely provocative and politically motivated.  Responding to such false report, we want to assert that Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami believes in systematic trend of democratic politics. Since the inception, Jamaat-e-Islami has been conducting systematic movement against terrorism and terrorist activities. So Jamaat-e-Islami has no connection with terrorism. Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami is taking part in political activities according to the domestic law and the constitution. So the demand of banning Jamaat is unlawful and illogical. This demand has been rejected widely in home and abroad already. Such demand will never be met.

In this backdrop, I am calling upon the authority of Daily Jugantor to be refrained from publishing intentional and provocative report against Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatrashibir in future and expecting that they would publish this rejoinder properly to lessen mass confusion.”
