Be sincere, ban Jamaat: Ganajagaran Mancha asks govtStaff Correspondent
Ganajagaran Mancha protesters on Wednesday reiterated the demand for banning Jamaat and its student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir.
They took out a procession in the city opposing Jamaat’s hartal.
They asked the government to be sincere in banning Jamaat and ICS.
The government must be sincere in this regard, said Ganajagan Mancha spokesman Imran H Sarker.
He described Jamaat a party of war criminals and as a terrorist outfit.
On February 5, young protesters took the streets in the city and later set up Ganajagaran Mancha at Shahbagh Crossing opposing inadequate sentence handed to Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Molla for his 1971 crimes against humanity.
They camped at Shahbagh Crossing for months, joined by thousands of protesters, to back the demand for death sentence for war criminal Quader.
They have been demanding banning of Jamaat and its student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir.
On Wednesday, hundreds of slogan chanting youths took the street at about 11 AM demanding the outfits be banned.
It is no big problem to ban Jamaat, as its registration has already been declared illegal by the court.
The question is whether or not the government is sincere about banning the terrorist outfits, said Imran.
Ganajagarn Mancha has taken a host of programmes to observe the National Mourning Day today.
