Cadres of Bangla Bhai armed with bamboo sticks and guarded by the police bring out a procession in Rajshahi city on May 23, 2004. PHOTO: File Photo

"...A number of militants who were arrested over time have revealed that they either belong to the Jamaat-e-Islami or its various wings or were past members. The most startling suspected Jamaat-militant link was unearthed at Khetlal of Joypurhat August 14, 2003. After an overnight gunfight at Jamaat activist Montejur Rahman's house, police arrested 39 suspected militants, 29 of whom confessed they were activists of Jamaat's student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir (ICS)..."

"...In August 2003, Sohel, a student of Sunamganj Government College was arrested for links with the JMB. His brother Selim made the following statement to the press on August 23: "Shibir [ICS] turned my brother into an ultra-religious man and forced him to work for Jama'atul Mijahideen [JMB]." Local ICS president Abu Hanif, however, denied the link and said, "He might have worked for us previously but is no more a Shibir worker now." Other than Jamaat, some leaders of the ruling BNP also supported the militants, specially Bangla Bhai and his group Jagrata Muslim Janata, Bangladesh (JMJB) in the northern districts. Bangla Bhai himself was an active member of the ICS until 1995. When Bangla Bhai came into focus for his killings, a state minister, a deputy minister and a BNP lawmaker openly supported him and directed the local police to give Bangla Bhai shelter...."

"...Last November, three militants were arrested with 24 powerful gelatin bomb-sticks and 124 electronic detonators in Gaibandha from a Shantahar-bound train. All of them said they are ICS activists although Jamaat disowned them.
Afterward, five JMB activists were arrested while making time bombs at the residence of one Naimuddin Hazi, a Jamaat worker. On May 23 last year, JMB members marched through Rajshahi town with police escort, in which local Jamaat leaders and activists participated. After the grenade attack on British High Commissioner Anwar Choudhury at Hazrat Shahjalal Shrine in Sylhet on May 21 last year, Khelafat Majlish Amir Hahbibur Rahman called a press conference to dismiss reports of his link to the incident. Jamaat and Islami Oikya Jote leaders accompanied him to the press conference...."


JAMAAT DENIAL=> Whenever any militant claims link to Jamaat, the party holds press conferences or issues statements to disclaim such connections. On August 20, Jamaat Aimr Moulana Matiur Rahman Nizami at a press conference said his party has no connection with militants. He said Jamaat does not believe in extremism and that such links are cooked up to malign the party.



Militants claim Jamaat background:

AL or BNP, they don't care what's in the best interest of bangladeshis. neither of these parties will take harsh enough action to stop these militants at their root. BNP will only take so much action so that they look good before next election. AL will keep on blaming BNP and calling hartals for not doing enough. if they are elected in next election they'll forget about rising islmaic militancy in our nation and start taking revenge against BNP. what we need is martial law.we need someone like parvez musharraf to sort out the uprising of militanst in our country. otherwise soon our country will turn into another afghanistan of mid-late 90s.
I understand your concern on AL and BNP as per their previous record, but a martial law or a government like Parvez Musharraf should never be an option for our better interest. We had a long history of military intervention to our politics with full of bloodshed, which in my opinion caused us too much in our short history. Finally we just got the way to keep them in barrack, so there is no meaning to take a step back by bringing them out again ( martial law ). Besides any kind of dictatorship is never be a solution in a long view, world history teaches us clearly if we take a close look.

Therefore come out of the closet and stop accusing people left and right and try to listen other people's point of view with open mind. And may be... may be people do the same with your point of view.
I thought you r not that social. Want to know my name and stuff. The reason I joined the forum was to talk about cricket. So I choose my favourite band's name. Hope that makes sense.

I am Hasan. Just graduated from a college in US. Became a working man. Let me know what else you need to know.

So you are open to let everyone know whats your point of view. As soon as I let you know my God !!!!! I should rather listen to others than post. Ok.

Vai I cant agree more with you. Our only hope is politicians of next generation will only think about the country not the vote bank or bank balance. Some say continious election will filter out these bad politicians of ours. We can just only hope.

eeks ! No wonder ekatturer bangalee is so spooked, even from the safety of his home inside heartland America. These characters are straight out of a "Rakkhosher Golpo" we are typically used to hearing as small kids.

Hey, any chance I could borrow your name...ekatturer bangali ? Afterall, my spirit of Independence is as much as yours, right ? Actually, you might think about patenting it before my idea catches on.

Let Bangladesh, Freedom, & Religion prevail !

Whatever this person "Bangla bhai" is doing on forcing people to follow a certain way of thinking is clearly against the teaching of Islam, as Allah (SWT) said in Quran:

Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things. [Srah al-Baqarah: 256]

If it had been your Lords will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe? [Srah Ynus: 99]


We(as muslims) should try our best to spread the message of Islam but not force people into it.Persons like "Bangla bhai" are giving a bad name to our religion and it's followers.

Also, there was a thread in BC earlier on, regarding "minority oppression" in Bangladesh. This surprises me, as our prophet Muhammad(pbuh) said:

Whoever hurts a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state hurts me, and he who hurts me annoys God." (Bukhari)

"He who hurts a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state, I am his adversary, and I shall be his adversary on the Day of a Judgement." (Bukhari)

"Beware on the Day of Judgement; I shall mysefl be complainant against him who wrongs a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state or lays on him a responsibility greater than he can bear or deprives him of anything that belongs to him." (Al-Mawardi)

"Anyone who kills a Non-Muslim who had become our ally will not smell the fragrance of Paradise." (Bukhari)


I do not understand how the hindus/buddhist/christians and other minorities are treated badly by muslims, when our prophet(pbuh) has warned us so many times against it!

JMB chief Abdur Rahman's brother held in Jamalpur
Staff Correspondent


Police arrested Moulana Obaidur Rahman Ibne Fazle, younger brother of banned Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) chief Abdur Rahman, at Madarganj upazila in Jamalpur early yesterday, suspecting his involvement in the August 17 countrywide serial blasts.

Obaidur's father late Moulana Abdullah Ibne Fazal was a member of the Jamiatul Ahle Hadith, which is now led by arrested Rajshahi University teacher Asadullah al Galib. Moulana Fazal was also accused of collaborating with the Pakistani forces during the Liberation War of 1971. :embaressed:

Why is it hard to understand that people do not fully abide by the teachings and preachings of Religion or Prophets.

Pundit - Bangla bhai and JMB members are not the "real rakkhosh" but thru them we can find the links to the "real rakkhosh" who have made them what they are today. So we should definitely find them ASAP and not let them go free as we did earlier.

If what is being reported in the news and media is not really having an effect on you, may be you need to really go with the cops and look at the books, videos and bomb making materials they find and hold them with your own hands to get a feeling of the situation.

Things like this is really hard to believe that it can happen in our country, but sooner or later we need to accept the truth and act on it before it gets out of control. Also acting fast will prevent the bad image from spreading and any future plan to brand our Country to something it is not.

what you say?

Yes, I know that people do not always follow the teachings of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh), but I would expect that on issues that are vague and not clear. Things that can be manipulated to have a different meaning.

But the hadiths regarding the treatment of non-muslims are very straightforward and I am not sure how they can be understood otherwise.

Anyhow, it is sad to see the lack of knowledge among people regarding Islam....

To tell you the truth, I do not see the point of this thread anymore. People are just copy pasting daily star news report.

Most Bangladeshis abroad keep track of these newspapers and are aware of whats going on. The non-Bangladeshi members will have a worse picture of Bangladesh after joining the forum. Afterall selective news on terrorism doesn't help the image of any country.

Image is important I agree. But it is also important to show the rest of the world that we Bangladeshis are as concerned about terrorism as everyone else. Allowing terrorist elements to flourish in Bangladesh will do nothing for our image in the long run.

Even before I right, I can see one of the mods taking an aim at my rear end...you guys.....

"But it is also important to show the rest of the world that we Bangladeshis are as concerned about terrorism as everyone else."

Can we assume that mass poverty does not concerm you ? I have not seen any pics posted by you on that topic ? Which could mean any of the following...

1) poverty does not exist in BD, or
2) Poverty does not concern you, or
3) You have your eyes so focused on "terrorist elements" that you fail to see all of BD's other problems.

I voodoo you, from now on you will dream of a kath mollah preaching your kid at the neighborhood private school.

Anyway, some of you remind me of folks here in the USA driving around in their SUVs with that $5 sticker printed in China that reads "Fight terrorism." I guess this is your version of token resistance.
