Police kills two Chhatrashibir leaders in Jhinaidah in the name of gunfight; Mia Ghulam Parwar condemns
Friday, 01st July, 2016
Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former member of the Parliament Professor Mia Ghulam Parwar has issued the following statement on 1st July, 2016 condemning the brutal murder incident as the policemen shot two detained Chhatrashibir leaders to death in Jhinaidah district last midnight.

“The government is murdering the opposition men particularly the leaders and activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir in a planned way as a part of their conspiracy to eliminate the opposition forces. Police had arrested Jhinaidah district Shibir leader Shahid Al Mahmud and same district’s Poly Technique College unit Islami Chhatrashibir leader Anisur Rahman on last 13th and 16th June respectively. But since then, they have been denying their arrest. But finally on 30th June midnight, police shot them both to death at a field of Tetulbaria village under Naldanga union of Jhenidah sadar upazila. After the brutal murder, police is claiming that they had been murdered in a gunfight. The family and relatives of these extra judicial killing victims became extremely shocked and mournful at this incident. We have no word to condemn such barbarous murder.

The law enforcers in now days as plain cloth dressed men, are frequently picking up their targeted person from their houses, business institutions, academic offices or social institutions and keep them in some unknown place. They also denied the arrest claim. In addition, the law enforcers severely tortured those detainees days after days. But when the law enforcers failed to collect testimony from the detainees as per their whims, they kill those detainees in the name of gunfight or crossfire defying the law, constitution and fundamental rights of the citizens. It should be mentioned that, in most of the cases, no person but the detainees become the victim of such extra judicial killing. Two leaders of Jhinaidah district Islami Chhatrashibir have become the victim of same state sponsored gunfight story.  

The government already has turned Jhinaidah district into a valley of death by murdering the Jamaat and Chhatrashibir activists indiscriminately. By murdering Jamaat and Shibir men in such a brutal way, the government is pushing the nation towards a deep political crisis. I am urging the countrymen to take stand against the government’s strategy of political murders in the name of so called gunfight. Today or tomorrow, the murderers who were involved with these unjust, inhuman and unlawful murders will be punished.

I am praying to Almighty Allah for the acceptance of martyrdom of Anisur Rahman and Shahid Al Mahmud and extending deep sympathy to their family, relatives and organizational fellows. May Allah bless them with strength to tolerate this severe shock.”
