Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 9 May 2021 recalling the historic contribution of former Jamaat Ameer, world renowned Islamic scholar, former minister and former member of Parliament Shaheed Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami.

“Shaheed Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami is very common name to the people of Bangladesh. He was a noted Islamic scholar and thinker. His unique characteristics of honesty, efficiency, generosity, humbleness, and broadness had taken into an exceptional height. Due to his leadership quality, since his childhood he served the organization as leader at various stages of life. He was always involved with the Islamic activities like spreading and circulating Islamic ideology and its subsequent establishment. As a politician, he struggled throughout his life for the betterment and welfare of the general masses. He played pivotal role in establishing democracy, rule of law, justice and human rights in Bangladesh.

He was elected member of Parliament from his constituency for twice; firstly in 1991 and secondly in 2001 general elections. The countrymen will remember his constructive speeches on various issues in the parliament. He also tried hard to elevate the status of Islamic education in the country. He worked sincerely to secure government’s recognition to Qawmi madrasa education system.

He sincerely and efficiently discharged duties as the minister of Agriculture and minister of industries. His sincere efforts turn country’s industrial sector into a profitable section. He was had widespread acceptance in the international arena. A Jordanian daily published a list of World’s 500 influential person in 2006 and enlisted him over there. In another survey of 2009, he was counted as one of the top 50 influential Muslim personalities of the world.

Maulana Nizami has authored so many important books which will enlighten the people and will help them tobuild their families and societies. He had delivered lots of addresses in different seminars, programs, events and general gathering. Those words will also help to rectify people’s thoughts.

He was sentenced to death in line with a false and concocted case. Later on, he was executed on 11 May of 2016 at 00:10 am.

I am remembering the historic contribution of former Ameer-e-Jamaat Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami with great honor and tribute. May Allah accept him as a martyr and bless him with Jannah. I am urging my fellow countrymen to accomplish his unfinished tasks sincerely and wholeheartedly.
