Jamaat will be banned within this year, says Qamrul

The Jamaat-e-Islami will be banned within this year after following the 'due process of law', says Food Minister Qamrul Islam. Speaking at a rally in front of the National Press Club on Thursday, he said, “No organisations run by war criminals should be allowed to function in Bangladesh. Jamaat will be banned within 2016 but by following the due process of law.”

 The rally was arranged against the shutdown that the Jamaat enforced on Thursday over the Appellate Division’s upholding the death penalty for its chief Matiur Rahman Nizami for war crimes in Bangladesh’s Liberation War.

 Islam said the execution of Nizami was now ‘only a matter of time’.

 “War criminals are being tried one after another in keeping with the Awami League election pledge to hold trials,” he added.

 The Jamaat stood against the birth of Bangladesh in 1971. Three of its leaders have already been hanged, several are on death row and several are facing trials for crimes against humanity committed in 1971, according to a news agency.
