DCC market in the capital collapses in fire; Jamaat Ameer condoles

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Maqbul Ahmad has issued the following statement on 3rd January, 2017 expressing deep shock at the huge losses as a part of the two storey DCC market collapsed following a massive fire broke out at the market in Gulshan-1 of the capital this morning.

Massive losses took place in today’s blaze in capital’s Gulshan-1 DCC market which is really painful and shocking. Hundreds of small businessmen and entrepreneurs would face financial crisis due to this blaze. Their losses cannot be managed easily. I hope and expect that the concerned authorities would investigate the accident properly and bring the responsible personnel to the justice for ensuring their due punishment. Besides, I hope that the government would take due steps to provide compensation for the rehabilitation of the victim shoppers.

I am urging all the wings and front organizations of Jamaat-e-Islami and other volunteer organizations to extend their hands of cooperation to the victim business communities.”
