Hefazat announces committee of 202 members, no Mamunul!
Hefazete Islam Bangladesh has announced a 202-member full committee with 54 people from Hefazete Islam, a popular organization based in Qaumi Madrasah.
On Thursday (August 31), Hefazat Amir Allama Muhibbullah Babunagari approved the Central Executive Committee. This information was given in a circular signed by Kefayatullah Azhari, the publicity secretary of the organization.
It is said that according to the decision of the central committee meeting of Hefazte Islam Bangladesh, under the leadership of Secretary General Allama Sajidur Rahman, a 12-member sub-committee met and formulated a draft committee list consisting of the previous committee and the current committee. The members of the sub-committee under the leadership of the secretary general presented the list of 202-member central executive committee and 53-member advisory council along with the appointment of a new committee at Babunagar madrasa in Chattogram, near Amir Allama Shah Muhibbullah Babunagari of Hefazat. He then approved both the list of the Advisory Council and the Central Executive Committee.
Mufti Jasimuddin, Maulana Junaid Al Habib, Maulana Muhiuddin Rabbani, Maulana Ayub Babunagari, Maulana Mir Idris, Maulana Kefayatullah Azhari were present among the members of the subcommittee.
Analyzing the list of the full committee of the party, it has been seen that many who were left out in the last committee have been placed in the full committee. However, Maulana Mamunul Haque, the discussed and criticized leader of Hefazat, was not kept in this committee either.
It can be seen that 53 advisers, 2 senior Nayeb Amirs, 49 Nayeb Amirs, 11 Joint Secretary Generals and 13 Assistant Secretary Generals have been placed in this committee with a total of 202 members. The chief advisor of the committee is Mohtamim Soltan Jawok Nadvi of Chittagong Darul Marif Madrasa. Allama Mohibbullah Babunagari is already the Amir of the committee and Maulana Sajidur Rahman is acting as the Secretary General.
It is known that the names of jailed influential leaders Maulana Mamunul Haque and Monir Hossain Kashemi did not appear in the list of the new leadership sent to the media in the form of a press release. Among them, Mamunul Haq was the joint convener of the dissolved committee and Mufti Monir Hossain Kashemi was the finance secretary. Both of them have been given responsibility in the newly announced committee, but their names have been hidden for strategic reasons.
A senior leader of Hefazat, who did not wish to be named, said that Maulana Mamunul Haque and Monir Ahmad Kashemi have been placed in important positions in the committee authorized by Hefazat Amir. Meanwhile, Mamunul Haque has been made the second joint secretary general. However, due to the pressure of the government, the names of these two people were not given in the announced list.
Maulana Zakaria Noman Faizi, the former publicity secretary of Hefazate Islam Bangladesh and the current assistant secretary general of the committee, told Berta24.com that the committee that was drafted in Dhaka was approved by Ameer Hefazat in today's Babunagar Madrasa. We should have had this committee earlier. 53 people are advisers in today's committee, there are some new people who have been removed.
Mamunul Haque has been excluded from this committee. Moreover, there is no one who is imprisoned here, he said.
