Pro-reformist Jamaat-e-Islami leaders have finally teamed up to float a new political party, reports UNB.
Mojibur Rahman Monju, an expelled Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Majlis-e-Shura member, made the announcement at a press conference at a city hotel on Saturday.
He said they have already formed five committees to launch the new party with a slogan “Jana Akhankhar Bangladesh”.
Monju, who is working as a coordinator of the platform, said their party would not be an Islamist one as representation of all communities will be there in it.
Earlier on 16 February, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami expelled Monju from the party for violating its discipline and engaging in anti-organisational activities.
On 15 February, Jamaat assistant secretary general Abdur Razzaq sent his resignation letter from the UK to the party Ameer saying that the party has failed to apologise for its anti-liberation war role in 1971 and reform the organisation accordingly.
