Tasnim Alam rejects the false news of several media; No bill was passed against Jamaat-e-Islami in the US Congress

Central Publicity Affairs Secretary of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor Md. Tasnim Alam has issued the following statement on 1 December 2018 protesting and renouncing the news of few online news portal and dailies titled ‘Bill placed in US Congress against Jamaat’.

“The news with the aforesaid title is completely politically motivated. Such a bill had been introduced earlier in 2015. But the superior committee of the congress rejected such bill after a scrutiny. As a result, the bill was not placed in the Congress anymore. 3 years later, similar bill has been submitted in the same committee on last 20th November 2018. The bill has the support of just one congressman out of 534 congress members. The bill will be rejected once again due to its false and concocted contents.

Just ahead of the 11th parliamentary election, this type of bill is being introduced again just to blackmail the Bangladeshi people politically. The people of the country clearly know that Jamaat has no nexus with the said allegations. The other members of the US congress are also well-informed about the bad intention and the false contents of this bill and this bill will be rejected overwhelmingly. We believe that, the vested quarters who are trying to mislead the people just to gain political interest prior to the national polls, their target will never be fulfilled.
