Initiative to ban Jamaat by June, says minister

Update : 14 Mar 2014, 03:06 PM

Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Huq has said the government will take steps to ban Jamaat-e-Islami by June for its involvement in crimes against humanity during the 1971 liberation war.

The minister made the statement in response to the queries of journalists at the 13th Muktir Utsab at the Dhaka University Physical Education Centre on Friday afternoon.

He said: “There is no plan to ban religion-based political parties; however we have certainly planned to ban Jamaat on the ground of being a war criminal platform.”

Mozammel Huq said no matter what the final verdict will be, Jamaat will be banned as a war crime party.

On August 1, 2013 the High Court declared Jamaat-e-Islami’s registration illegal with the Election Commission as a political party.

Liberation War Museum organised the function where some 10,000 school-going kids took oath for building a non-communal and democratic Bangladesh.
