Discussion meeting and prayer congregation held in memory of Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali, the first central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir
Govt assassinated Mir Quasem Ali for the purpose of establishing a meritless society and destroying Islamic movement: AZM Obaidullah
Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir organized a discussion meeting and prayer congregation at an auditorium in the capital today in the memory of Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali, the first central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir, member of the central executive council of Jamaat-e-Islami, prominent Islamic economist, social worker and media personality. The program was presided by Shibir Central President Salahuddin Ayyoubi and conducted by Secretary General Rashedul Islam. The chief guest was AZM Obaidullah, a member of the Central Majlis of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former central president of Chhatrashibir and former central president Abdul Jabbar was present as special guest.
Speaking as the chief guest, AJM Obaidullah said that Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali was an honest, worthy and ideal citizen and a shining example of leadership. But this artisan of building Bangladesh, which is unfortunate for the nation, has been assassinated by a state conspiracy. By assassinating Mir Kashem Ali, the illegitimate fascist government has written a scandalous chapter in the history of the country. When the heinous conspiracy to make Bangladesh incompetent, ineffective after its birth became as clear as daylight, Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir was established under the leadership of Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali in an attempt to shape the education system in this country in the light of the Qur'an. Mir Quasem Ali was assassinated in cold blood to halt the activities of the favorite organization of meritorious students in order to deprive the nation from the benefits of Islamic education system. Until 2010, there was not even a single General Diary against Mir Quasem Ali in any police station in the country. The tribunal in question carried out this unjust execution by capitalizing on witnesses born after 1971, and their lies and concoctions. His name was nowhere in the documents submitted by the government against him. The discrepancies and inconsistencies in the details of each of the allegations made against him were evident, and which his lawyers had explicitly submitted to the court along with the evidence. But the Islamophobic government intended to assassinate him from the very beginning. As a result, there was no justice in the illegal tribunal, rather an innocent person was unjustly killed by influencing the judiciary. The government hanged him only because he played an important role in the Islamic movement. However, the purpose for which the government killed Mir Quasem Ali will never be fulfilled. The courts of law will not be in the possession of the fascists forever. Insha Allah, the murderers will be tried in the name of justice in the land where the blood of innocent martyr Mir Quasem Ali has been shed. We think that Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali has reached his highest point of success. But the illegitimate government, through its actions, has taken the place of barbarians and lowest of the low.
The chief guest further said in his speech that Mir Quasem Ali was an extraordinary personality accustomed to a simple life. From his student days, Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali has struggled for the establishment of a benevolent Islamic society in this country. He was the founding central president of the student society's favorite caravan Islami Chhatrashibir. He was also known and admired as a renowned politician, organizer, industrialist, cultural organizer, founder of print and electronic media, and a dreamer of numerous public welfare and social welfare organizations. He played a leading role in building many mosques, madrasas, various Islamic and public welfare institutions, including setting up of the Islamic banking system. He has taken groundbreaking steps in providing low cost healthcare to the poor people of Bangladesh. It is a matter of shame that those who have devoted their lives to the service of humanity have been killed with false charges of anti-humanitarian activities. However, genocide enablers, murderers, looters of crores of taka, armed terrorists, corrupt people, and licentious, characterless people have been honoured by the government in the country. But the countrymen are alert and conscious. The people did not believe in the Awami League propaganda against the top leaders of the world-renowned Islamic movement, Shaheed Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami, Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid, Muhammad Kamaruzzaman, Abdul Quader Mollah, and Mir Quasem Ali. On the contrary, the people who love the country and Islam have given them a place in their hearts and have become more committed to realizing the dreams of the martyred.
Speaking as the special guest, former central president Abdul Jabbar said that Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali was an exceptional envisioner of the Islamic revolution in modern Bangladesh. Martyr Mir Quasem Ali had a strong desire to not to confine his application of Islam to the observance of certain rules, but to its wider application in society and economy, in sectors such as business, social welfare, education, media, and culture. The fact that his actions sowed seeds in the hearts and minds of thousands of entrepreneurs is clear in the continuity of such works. He has also succeeded in his thinking, and we are hopeful that this trend will continue till the Day of Resurrection insha Allah. Jealous of his success, the current illegitimate government fell prey to a heinous conspiracy of the so-called war crimes tribunals. The student community bearing the flag of the Islamic Revolution will avenge his murder by establishing Islam in this country insha Allah.
Speaking on the occasion, Salahuddin Ayoubi, Central President of Chhatrashibir, said that the tried and tested heroes of the nation, such as Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali, have been killed through conspiracies against Islam and the Islamic movement. The main purpose of the evil power was to do away with the Islamic movement from the land of Bengal. But their dream has boomeranged. Thanks to every drop of blood from the martyrs, the process of establishing an Islamic welfare state in this country is moving forward towards a new level. We firmly declare that we will not allow the precious blood and sacrifices of the martyrs to go in vain. We are determined to complete the task of religious victory left unfinished by the martyr Mir Quasem Ali, even in exchange for the highest level of sacrifice. Those who dreamt of making the Islamic movement leaderless by killing the martyr Mir Quasem Ali will never be able to fulfill that dream. Every drop of blood of the martyr Mir Quasem Ali will inspire the people who believe in the Islamic values of this country. Insha Allah, the final answer to the forces of evil will be given by establishing the Islamic society dreamt by Shaheed Mir Quasem Ali.
