Inu urges pro-Islamic parties to shun Jamaat

DHAKA, Feb 23, 2012 (BSS) - Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) president and Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu today urged the pro-Islam parties to call off their tomorrow's hartal severing links with Jamaat-e- Islami saying it was exploiting Islam actually to belittle Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)

"I hope they (Islamic parties) will withdraw their hartal call," he told the JSD's national committee meeting at its party office at Bangabandhu Avenue.

He added: "I urge the like minded Islamic parties to severe
links with Jamaat-e-Islami . . as a matter of fact, Jamaat
humiliates our beloved Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) with their
preaching."

Inu called Jamaat a "terrorist organization" and said "by
calling the meaningless hartal in the name of Islam, they (again)
insulted our beloved Prophet".

The JSD chief also urged the main opposition BNP to cut off
ties their extreme rightwing ally and extend hands to the
government to expose to justice the Jamaat activists for
terrorism.

"I urge Begum Khaleda Zia, if you want to uphold democracy
discard relations with Jamaat resist their fascist activities and
offer your assistance for trial of the (Jamaat) terrorists," he
said.

"They used mosques to bring out their processions, damaged
Shahid Minars and tiered off national flags, attacked
journalists, damaged freedom fighters' offices and 'ganajagaran
Manchas' at different places . . . all aimed to halt war crimes
trial."

Party general secretary Sharif Nurul Ambia, president of
party's executive committee Mainuddin Khan Badal MP and women
leader Shirin Akhtar, among others spoke on the occasion.
