Dr. Zafar Iqbal stabbed in head; Acting Ameer condemns; demands due punishment of the attackers

Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 3rd March, 2018 protesting and condemning the miscreant’s attack in which Dr. Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, a noted teacher of Sylhet Science and Technology University has been stabbed in head.

“The miscreant stabbed Dr. Muhammad Zafar Iqbal in a function of the University campus. I am vehemently condemning and protesting the incident. When a reputed and renowned person like Dr. Muhammad Zafar Iqbal is unsafe, then what about the standard of safety and security of the general masses, it is easily assumed. This incident once again proved the failure of the government in maintaining the law and order situation.

I am urging to identify the personnel who were involved with this incident and also to bring them to the book for ensuring their stern punishment.”
