LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan has condemned the Dhaka High Court decision banning the Jamaat-e-Islami, Bangladesh and revoking its registration with the BD Election Commission.
In a statement here on Thursday, terming the court decision as unconstitutional, partial and biased, the JI Ameer has appealed to the world nations, democratic forces and the Muslim states to play their role in checking the vendetta of the pro-India Hasina Wajid regime in Dhaka against the Jamaat leaders in the country.
He said that the JI, Bangladesh was being victimised and its leadership had been convicted and handed down sentences of life term and even death. He said so far, this was being done by a so-called tribunal but now the high court had stepped in to do the same.
Munawar Hasan said that in fact, Hasina Wajid government wanted to keep JI away from the people and crush it at the behest of India whereas a majority of the Bangladesh people stood with the JI in the present situation.
Millions of people were staging protest in different parts of the country due to which the Hasina Wajid regime was afraid.
He said democratic forces in the world and the Muslim states were criminally silent over the State oppression against JI. He said that the Foreign Office, Islamabad had termed the matter as an internal issue of Bangladesh, which was the worst form of injustice, and totally unexpected.
