Jamaat Ameer remembers former Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and his contributions

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 21st November, 2021 recalling the contributions of Jamaat-e-Islami’s former Secretary General and former Social Welfare Minister Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid.

“Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid is a fearless soldier and outstanding leader of the Islamic movement. He will be remembered for years for his bold and historic role in establishing democracy, rule of law, justice, human rights, people’s voting rights and most of all, a welfare state.

He discharged duties successfully as the Social Welfare Minister during the 2001-2006 tenure of the 4 party alliances. As a minister, he set an example of honesty, efficiency and transparency.

Government failed to tackle Jamaat-e-Islami politically and subsequently they hatched conspiracies to destroy party’s leadership. As a part of the same conspiracy, they lodged a false case of crimes against humanity against Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid. By placing the testimonies of ruling party men, he was sentenced to death. The chief justice, who had handed down death penalty against Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid, he has been convicted recently in a corruption case. It is very natural that the verdict of a corrupted justice would be perverse as well. It will be proved with the course of time that, Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and other Jamaat leaders were hanged just to attain the political interest of a vested quarter.

Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid was executed at 12.55am on 21stNovember of 2015. Islam will be established in this country in exchange of the highest sacrifice, made by Shaheed Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and other top Jamaat leaders.

May Allah accept the martyrdom of Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and bless him with the highest place in Jannah. I am urging the Jamaat leaders and activists of all levels to accomplish the unfinished activities of Shaheed Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and simultaneously expecting assistances and cooperation of the fellow countrymen in this regard.
