Family members meet Maulana Nizami inside the prison; it would be a great fortune if Allah accepts me as a martyr, Jamaat Ameer affirms
Friday, 06 May 2016

Family members have met Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer, world renowned Islamic thinker and former minister Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami in the Kashimpur central jail today.

After the rejection of the review petition on 5th May, 2016, this is the first meet of the family members with Maulana Nizami. Following the meet, family members informed that Jamaat Ameer Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami is well and firm mentally. He is not worried at his death sentence.

He told the family members, Almighty Allah is the sole authority of life and death. My death will come in that time and place which has been fixed by the Almighty. Not its before or after. I have no weakness and limitations. I have not committed any offence. The incumbent government is plotting conspiracy to kill me as an unjust act just to achieve their ill political interest. It would be a great fortune for me, if Allah accepts me as a martyr.

I am urging my family, all leaders and activists of my party and the countrymen to hold patience. Certainly Allah is with those people, who hold patience.

I am declaring firmly, Almighty Allah is the sole owner of our life. So there is no scope of seeking mercy before anyone except the Almighty. I am extending my Salam and seeking prayers to the countrymen so that I can stay on my Iman and belief strongly till the last breath. I am ready to sacrifice maximum for the satisfaction of the Almighty Allah. May Allah accept my beloved Bangladesh for the Islamic movement. Ameen.
