Arrest, torture or oppression will not stop the progress of the Islamic movement
Yasin Arafat, the central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatra Shibir, said that anti-Islamic power has become alarmed at the continuous advance of Shibir. The illegal government has become frightened by not being able to contain its development despite employing killings, torture and propaganda. But the arrest, torture or oppression cannot stop the Islamic movement.
He said this while addressing a member education camp at Khulna arranged by the Khulna Metropolitan Branch as the chief guest at an auditorium in Khulna today. Presided over by Metropolitan President Rakib Mahmud and Secretary Shahriar Faisal, Central school activities secretary Rajib Rahman Palash was present as special guest, along with madrasa secretary Imran Khalid. At this time the metropolitan office secretary Mosharraf Ansari, finance secretary Abdul Quader, literary secretary Sayedee Hasan and others were also present.
The Shibir president said, Chhatra Shibir is the beloved organisation of the people of this country. Even among the many obstacles, the leaders of Shibir activists have continued on the path to development and progress, which has infuriated the anti camp. They have expressed this through the continuation of the steam roller of oppression. The level of state repression against a systematic student organization is unprecedented. On the orders of the government, ministers, the MP’s and the police are continuously lying and doing drama against Shibir. Police are not only attacking the opposition activists but also arresting them on during social, cultural and festival related celebrations. Recently more than two hundred culture loving people in Chittagong were arrested by the police and the government, which exposed their misdeeds. Such unbalanced activities of the government are now a matter of laughing stock to the people. The imaan of Shibir activists will increase with the increase in the level of oppression InshaAllah.
He said to the government, move away from the propaganda path and dirty methods of torture and arrest. Restore civil rights and basic freedom of speech. The government does not have power to suppress Shibir. The workers of the Islamic movement are fearless. They are always ready to sacrifice anything to follow the path of religion. All your oppression, torture and propaganda will be met by our workers through patience, bravery and orderliness. Chhatra Shibir will not bow down before any dirty strategy. In response to all the obstacles, the leaders and activists of Shibir will move forward in forming a prosperous country in the light of the Qur'an, InshaAllah.
