Jamaat calls hartal on Ghulam Azam verdict day

Update : 14 Jul 2013, 10:27 AM

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami has called a countrywide dawn-to-dusk shutdown for Monday, following the pronouncement set for the same day of the International Crimes Tribunal’s verdict against the party’s ex-chief Ghulam Azam for his involvement in crimes against humanity.

The hartal was declared on Sunday by Maulana Rafiqul Islam Khan, assistant secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Rowdy activists of Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student affiliate of Jamaat, set ablaze a police microbus, and attacked on the members of police in city’s Bijoynagar soon after the International Crimes Tribunal (ICT 1) set July 15 for pronouncing verdict against Ghulam Azam.

The Shibir activists also vandalised around 20 vehicles on the streets creating panic across the area.

International Crimes Tribunal 1 set Monday to deliver its verdict in the case against Ghulam Azam. The tribunal, led by Justice ATM Fazle Kabir, passed the order on Sunday.
