Acting Ameer urges to observe and Victory Day on 16th December

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Acting Ameer and former lawmaker Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 14th December, 2023 urging to observe Victory Day on next 16th of December with due fervor.

Glorious Victory Day is going to be observed on 16th December. This day is very significant from the perspective of our national lives. We are remembering the veteran freedom fighters who had sacrificed their lives to achieve the independence of this nation. We are praying for the salvation of their souls. We would like to recall all the freedom fighters and their contributions who had taken part in the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971.

The country is going to observe Victory Day in such a time when the entire nation is suffering from a suffocating and critical situation. The nation is moving towards an uncertain destination. There is no existence of democracy, rule of law and human rights in the country. The authority has hijacked the voting rights and rights to expression of the citizens.

Misrule and corruptions have engulfed the whole nation. People’s lives, properties and dignity became unsafe. Different quarters and sections also raised questions about the human rights, which is very shameful for all of us.

The opposition leaders and activists have been kept behind the bar for years unjustifiably. Harassments against the dissident people are still going on. Intellectuals, religious scholars are also detained. Authors, writers, journalists, academicians and the professionals are not spared from the repression of the government.

I am urging all wings and front organizations of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and the fellow countrymen to observe Victory Day on 16th December by holding discussions and prayer program with a vow to protect national independence and sovereignty.

Besides, I am extending my greetings to my fellow countrymen on the occasion of Victory Day and expecting their progress, prosperities and overall welfare.”
