Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari expressed shock and utter disgust over the arrest of Professor Ghulam Azam, ex-Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh, and asked the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Ms. Sheikh Hasina to release Professor Azam and other members of Jamaat-e-Islami with immediate effect.
The Jamaat leader, in a press statement, said establishment of truth and justice and distancing away from injustice and oppression make the leaders earn respect among the people and global recognition in the world; whereas a totally opposite approach leading to oppression, suppression, subjugation and injustice does not behove the Muslim leaders as such practices shake the foundations of the government and decreases acceptance among people.
The Jamaat leader said it is evident to everyone, be it the Indian government or educational centres or organisations or people who keep a close watch on the happenings in the Muslim world, that trials of Jamaat members arrested would be rigged and alienated from justice and would be done in a revengeful manner as the law itself does not provide any justification for the trials. He said it is quite hurting to say that such attitude reminds us of the despotic leaders of Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, etc. who unleashed atrocities over their own people, spilt their blood and made their life hell; however at the end of the day they met their fate and received or have been receiving full recompense for their inhumane activities.
The Jamaat leader reminded Sheikh Hasina of the rich Islamic legacy of Bangladesh and appealed to her not to spoil this legacy by keeping Professor Azam, a renowned Islamic figure, and other members of Jamaat behind the bars. He hoped that Bangladesh government will immediately free those arrested and prove itself to be a justice loving nation.
