Shaheed Mujahid was not involved with 21st August grenade attack; Hamidur Rahman Azad rejects Bangla Tribune report
Sunday, 21st August, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former member of the Parliament Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 21st August, 2016 protesting the baseless information published in a report of online news portal ‘Bangla Tribune’ quoting the chief of banned militant outfit Harkatul Jihad (HUJI) Mufti Hannan which has intentionally implicated former Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and ex-minister Shaheed Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid with the heinous incident of grenade attack on a rally of Awami League on 21st August of 2004.

“Former Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and ex-minister Shaheed Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid had no involvement with the heinous incident of grenade attack on a rally of Awami League on 21st August of 2004.

The report of Bangla Tribune claimed that some of the top leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami attended a meeting in Hawa Bhaban on 14th August of 2004. The claim is totally false and concocted. No question is raised about the participation of any Jamaat leader in the said meeting at all.

Shaheed Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid has no nexus with the allegation which has been refereed in Bangla Tribune quoting the statement of Mufti Hannan. The concerned reporter of Bangla Tribune has published in fictitious claim in the name of Shaheed Mujahid in order to prove their allegation.

I am urging the authority of Bangla Tribune to be refrained from conducting such ill propaganda against a Shaheed (martyr) and expecting that they would publish this rejoinder in order to lessen the mass confusion.”
