  • Court likely to hear a plea for bringing contempt of court proceedings against Jamaat leaders 

 

Update : 19 Oct 2023, 06:32 PM

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Thursday fixed November 6 for holding a hearing on a plea for banning political activities of Jamaat-e-Islami, whose registration as a political party has already been declared illegal.

A four-member apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Obaidul Hassan set the date. 

The court is also likely to hear a plea for bringing contempt of court proceedings against Jamaat leaders on that day.

Barrister Tania Amir was present for the pleas, while Advocate on-record Joynul Abedin Tuhin appeared for Jamaat.

Bangladesh Tariqat Federation secretary general Rezaul Haque Chandpuri and a couple of others filed the writ and it was produced before the Appellate Division chamber judge court for the hearing on June 26. 

The chamber judge court, however, sent the matter to Appellate Division full bench for further hearing.

The High Court on August 1, 2013, declared the registration of Jamaat-e-Islami as a political party, illegal. Appellate Division Chamber Judge Court on August 5, 2013, scrapped a petition of Jamaat, pleading to stay the High Court judgment.
