- Maulana ATM Masum

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami's Acting Secretary General Maulana ATM Masum has issued the following statement on 1st September 2022 protesting and condemning the latest incident as a Jubo Dal activist has been killed and many others became wounded following a severe clash in Narayanganj today.

A rally was brought out by the Narayanganj district BNP marking party's founding anniversary. Clash erupted as police obstructed the procession. Police hurled tear shell and opened fire. Resultantly, a Jubo Dal activist named Shawn became wounded. He was immediately taken to the hospital but on-duty doctors declared him dead. I am condemning the incident severely.

I am praying for the departed soul of deceased Shawn and extending sympathy to his mournful family. I am praying for the quick recovery of the wounded victims. Finally, I am calling upon the concerned authorities to take stern measures against those people who were involved with this incident.
