The news of the appeal for clemency by Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Ali Ahsan Mujahid is false and fabricated, stated his wife Tamanna-e-Jahan.
She informed Naya Diganta that the news, which was being rumoured to be from a source at Central Jail, and which was circulating on various mass media of the application for clemency by Mujahid towards the President was totally fabricated.
She informed that her husband had not taken any decision outside the advice of his lawyers and would never do so. The government had not even allowed his lawyers to meet up with him for the past two days. That was why he had not taken any step regarding what was to be done after that.
However, a quarter with vested interests had spread a misleading news to the contrary on mass and communication media. She advised all to not heed to such false news.
