Jamaat

Editorial

Jamaat's 3-day hartal

THE 3-day hartal called by Jamaat, which will, in essence, put the country on a six-day hiatus, is totally unacceptable. The party must respect the verdict given by the International War Crimes Tribunal and follow due process of the law. If it disagrees with the death sentence, it can appeal against the verdict, as it has done in all previous cases, instead of imposing hartals and causing immeasurable sufferings to common people. The party iscurrently, on one hand, partaking in...

PLEASURE IS ALL MINE

Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

WE have an unc-anny genius not to notice any change in tone, temper and texture of the overall political atmosphere so possessed are we with our programmed inputs like robots. Soon perhaps, we will be entering the animated phase of robotic technology which is in for taking over some human loads, as it is. Only that we are ready candidates for such an unthinking existential transformation. It risks replacing application of human intelligence to be constantly improving not regressing as some other nations are doing before our own eyes. Remember, Tunisia which heralded the Arab Spring through a self-immolation incident has in a historic vote given a ringing verdict with...

Jamaat Hartal

First phase largely peaceful

Even though there were some stray incidents of violence, the first phase of the Jamaat-called 72-hour nationwide hartal was largely peaceful yesterday. The strike received a lukewarm response in all the cities including the capital. However, the traffic was lighter than the usual days. Almost all the educational institutions remained closed yesterday considering safety of the students travelling on the roads. The hartal also disrupted inter-district road communication across the country, causing sufferings to many. BNP's key ally Jamaat-e-Islami is enforcing the 72-hour...

Ghulam Azam family upset with BNP

Jamaat high-ups and family members of Ghulam Azam are very disappointed that the BNP gave them the cold shoulder over the Jamaat guru's demise and skipped his namaz-e-janaza, insiders of both parties said. Abdullahil Amaan Azmi, fourth son of Ghulam Azam, in a facebook post on Wednesday said that the "whole nation" was disappointed with the BNP's silence about his father's death although the entire world was mourning. "I'm not sure why," he wrote. Throwing an "open challenge" to the BNP, he...

Exams hartal-hit

Exams hartal-hit

Around 21 lakh schoolchildren along with their guardians are frustrated and concerned, thanks to Jamaat's ongoing hartal which led to the deferral of Sunday's JSC and JDC examinations across the country. While this has ruined the young learners' preparations, it will also put undue mental pressure on them. And it is highly unlikely that the...

Islam misused deliberately

Jamaat and its the then student wing Islami Chhatra Sangha had misused the religion and worked against the sanctions of the Holy Quran and Hadiths by committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971, the International Crimes Tribunal-1 said. Jamaat-e-Islami's notorious student wing was renamed Islami Chhatra Shibir after the war. The two had functioned as “communal” as well as “criminal” organisations to implement the plan and design of the Pakistan army, which resulted in the killing of innumerable...
