Jamaat has no link with any militant outfits; Tasnim Alam disproves the false report of Daily Inqilab
Sunday, 21st August, 2016

Central Publicity Affairs Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 21st August, 2016 gainsaying the report of Bengali daily ‘Inqilab’ titled  স্বরাষ্ট্র মন্ত্রণালয়ে  গোয়েন্দা  প্রতিবেদন । জামায়াত-শিবিরই এখন জেএমবি   (Intelligence Report at Home Ministry: Jamaat-Shibir have transformed to JMB).

“The aforesaid report stated that quoting various intelligence officials that ‘New JMB’ and ‘Ansarullah Bangla Team’ are the new name of Jamaat-Shibir forces. All the contents of the report are false, baseless and concocted.

Responding to the report of Daily Inqilab, our clear view is, Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatrashibir believe in systematic and democratic trend of transparent politics. Jamaat and Chhatrashibir sincerely hate all types of terror acts. So no question is emanated for Jamaat or Chhatrashibir to have any connection with the banned militant outfits like New JMB, Ansarullah Bangla Team, Harkatul Jihad or Shaheed Hamza Brigade. No activist of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir had ever arrested from any academic institution for their connection with the militancy. Similarly, among the militant suspect detainees, there is no one from Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir. Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir have no nexus with the heinous acts of anarchy and murder.

The report of the Daily Inqilab further claimed that there was a deal with Jamaat to provide 50 lac taka to 5 suicide militant attackers and another 50 lac to different militant organizations. This claim is also false. Jamaat-e-Islami has no relation with any militant bodies. So the claim of providing money is also baseless.

The entire report of the Daily Inqilab is fictitious and it has no relevance with the reality at all. This false report has been published in order to tarnish the image of Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatrashibir.

Finally, I am calling upon the authority of Daily Inqilab to stop publishing such baseless and concocted report and expecting that they would publish the rejoinder to minimize the general confusion.”
