Hamidur Rahman Azad disapproves the false address of the Home Minister; Jamaat has no connection with militancy
Friday, 26th August, 2016

Central Executive Committee member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 26th August, 2016 protesting against the address of the Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal which he has delivered in a program at Krishibid Institute Auditorium of the capital this noon hinting at the instigation of Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatrashibir behind the militancy.

“Quoting the intelligence sources, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has hinted at some instigation of Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir behind the militancy which is not true at all.

Responding to his address, I want to say clearly that Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir believe in democratic and transparent politics. Jamaat and Chhatrashibir have no links with the acts of militancy. So no question is emanated at all to come out such links from the interrogations of the suspect militants.

On the particular night, when the Gulshan restaurant came under militant attack, among all the parties, Jamaat-e-Islami was the first organization that had issued statement asking the authority to detain the militants alive so that their identity and the masterminds of the attacks could be revealed. Jamaat has raised this demand with honest intention as they conduct honest, terrorism free and democratic trend of politics. This stance proved that Jamaat and Chhatrashibir have no involvement with any sorts of militant and terrorist activities.

After disclosing the personal, family, social and political identities of the Gulshan attackers, the countrymen fully understand that who were involved with that attack. Now an intentional campaign and propaganda is being carried out against Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir to conceal the real truth.

Under such circumstances, I am urging Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal to be refrained from delivering fictitious and intentional address against Jamaat-e-Islami and Chhatrashibir.”
