Although Jamaat’s registration is cancelled; there is no bar in observing regular activities 

-Advocate Matiur Rahman Akanda

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s central executive committee member and central publicity secretary Advocate Matiur Rahman Akanda has said, Awami League government has established a one-party rule in its 15-year regime. All constitutional institutions have been destroyed. They have interfered the electoral and the judicial process. Without hearing the argument of Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamaat’s appeal plea has been rejected in the registration case and thus they have made an unlawful practice. If rule of law gets restored in the country, Jamaat will get back its registration. However, despite the cancellation of registration, there is no complicity or bar in observing Jamaat’s regular activities. I am urging Jamaat leaders and activists to continue organizational activities peacefully.

He said this while addressing a leadership conference of Natore district Jamaat-e-Islami as the chief guest on 28th November. Natore district Ameer Professor Dr. Meer Nurul Islam presided over the conference which was hosted by district secretary Professor Sadequr Rahman. Jamaat’s central executive committee member and Rajshahi region’s coordinator Principal Shahabuddin addressed the program as the special guest. Natore district Nayeb-e-Ameer Professor Younus Ali and Principal Delwar Hossain were also present in the program.

Matiur Rahman Akanda said, the schedule for election declared by the election commission has been outrightly rejected by the people. This declaration of schedule is a part of the government’s conspiracy. The commission has also undertaken the strategy to keep the oppositions out of the election in order to secure the victory of the ruling party. But the people will not let them to execute such conspiracy. He claimed, because of the government’s repression against Jamaat-e-Islami, public sympathy has increased a lot for this organization. We have to circulate the ideology of the organization among the people of all quarters.

Principal Shahabuddin said, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami wants to establish Islam in this country. So, we have to uphold and convey the message of Islam to the people. We have to resolve all problems through a united movement in a bid to preserve and protect country’s independence and sovereignty. And most of all, we have to seek help from Allah. Except Allah, there is none to help us.
