Chirir Bandar Upazila Chairman and Jamaat leader Aftab Uddin Molla arrested; Secretary General condemns

Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 28 March 2019 protesting and condemning the unjust arrest of Jamaat’s Rangpur regional team member, party’s central Majlish-e-Shura member and Chirir Bandar Upazila’s elected Chairman Aftab Uddin Molla from his office today.

“Police has arrested Mr. Aftab Uddin Molla just to harass him politically. I am condemning this incident.

Mr. Aftab Uddin Molla is a popular Upazila chairman. Police has arrested him as per the government’s instruction as they are in fear of his popularity. He has become the victim of the incumbent authoritarian regime’s repression. Government’s fascist face has been exposed once again by this arrest incident.

I am calling upon the concerned authorities to stop oppression and harassment and to releasee Mr. Aftab Uddin Molla immediately.
