Jamaat denies any relation with the militants killed during Rajshahi raid

Mr. Sazzad Ali, his wife Beli Akhter and father-in-law Lutfor Rahman, the trios have been killed during a raid in a militant den at Godadari Upazila of the Rajshahi district recently. Several newspapers have published news implicating these peoples with Jamaat-e-Islami. Protesting and gainsaying those false and baseless reports, Rajshahi West Organizational district Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Professor Abdul Khaleque has issued the following statement on 13th May, 2017.

“Jamaat-e-Islami has no connection with the killed militants Mr. Sazzad Ali, his wife Beli Akhter and father-in-law Lutfor Rahman. These syndicated reports have published implicating these trios with Jamaat-e-Islami in order to tarnish the party image. But those vested quarters will not be able to confuse and mislead the countrymen by publishing such false and baseless news.

Under the circumstances, I am urging the authorities of the concerned newspapers to be refrained from publishing such false and syndicated reports implicating Jamaat-e-Islami in future. I am also expecting that they would publish this rejoinder properly to minimize the confusion.”
