Awami League bans Maududi’s Tafsir Ul Quran, removes religious books from 23000 state libraries


The Awami League in Bangladesh has gone berserk. It is following the policies of Shaikh Mujib Ur Rehman who on his return from Pakistan banned all political parties and then had himself declared dictator for life. Bangladeshi patriots on August 14th, 1975 killed the Indian agent and threw his body on the streets to rot. The Rakhi Bhani was evicted and the Bangladeshi independence restored in Dhaka.

His daughter is now on the same war path, working against the religious parties like the Bangladesh Jamaat e Islami. The Bangladesh National Party faces the same sort of harassment. Both were robbed of an election victory though connivance and fraud which eliminated millions of voters registered to the BNP and JI.

DHAKA: The Bangladesh government has ordered tens of thousands of mosques and libraries to remove books written by Syed Abul Ala Maududi, founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Shamim Mohammad Afjal, head of the state-run Islamic Foundation, said on Saturday. He said that the books written by Maududi were deemed anti-Islamic and likely to foster militancy. “We will withdraw Maududi’s books from all of the state-funded 24,000 libraries,” he said. afp

According to series of statistics and information, Jamat-e-Islami has already gained tremendous economic influence in Bangladesh with its known and unknown investments in hospitals, medical centers, diagnosis centers, banks, insurance companies, trading houses, newspapers, printing press, television channels etc, where from not only the party earns millions of dollars every month, but thousands of Jamat members and recruits are employed in such ventures. Jamat also has established mosques and madrassas under the umbrella of Islamic Education Center, an organization mostly funded by Saudis and Arabs. By now, thousands of madrassas and mosques are already operating in Bangladesh under Jamat-e-Islami’s direction

Meanwhile, Indian channels are showing that Bangladeshi police are on offensives against Mullahs as well as anyone wearing Islamic cap or having beard. It may be debated that, everyone having beard and Islamic cap are now Jamat members or activists, but, for the sake of a maximum offensive on Jamat-e-Islami, it is extremely essential. One of the Indian television channels said, since the arrest of Jamat men and offensives on beard and Islamic cap, there is fear in the minds of people, who are not activists or members of this Islamic party. Many bearded people are seen refraining from attending prayers in the mosques.Global Politician

At least 30 people were injured in clashes Wednesday between Bangladesh police and supporters of the country’s biggest Islamic political party whose leaders were arrested on charges of hurting Muslim religious sentiments.

Witnesses said the clashes occurred in Brahmanbaria district, some 150 km (93 miles) east of the capital Dhaka and home to many supporters of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, who had taken to the streets to protest their leaders’ arrest on Tuesday.

Jamaat is a political ally of the opposition Nationalist Party led by former prime minister Begum Khaleda Zia.

Police had arrested the three men after another religious group, the Bangladesh Tarikat Federation, filed a court case in March against them, saying they had compared the Jamaat party chief with Prophet Mohammad. In Islam, Mohammad is beyond comparison.

Police named the arrested leaders as Jamaat chief Moulana Motiur Rahman Nizami, his deputy Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and another key party leader Moulana Delwar Hossain Saidee.

Jamaat said around 25 other party members were detained overnight in various districts.

Metropolitan Magistrate Mehedi Hasan Talukder approved the arrests as the accused had failed to comply with a summons to appear in court to hear the charges against them.

The men were held in police custody and are likely to appear in court Wednesday, police said.

Many Bangladeshis accuse Jamaat of collaborating with the Pakistani army during the 1971 war of independence.

The party in turn has accused the government of Sheikh Hasina of trying to curb its activities using war crime charges and is likely to see the arrests as a ploy to push that effort. (Reporting by Ruma Paul; Writing by Anis Ahmed, editing by Miral Fahmy). (Reuters) –

    Maulana Maududi is widely disliked in Bangladesh for his role against the Bengalis in 1971. One of the many steps taken by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, president of People’s Republic of Bangladesh was the banning of Maulana Maududi’s hate-filled literature. Now, her daughter Sheikh Hasina did it again. It is high time for Pakistan to take lesson from Bangladesh.

    Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Rarakatuh,

    I stumbled across this article through a google search and having just read the comments, I am shocked.

    I will start by saying that neither am I from Pakistan nor Bangladesh nor any other country nearby. I will also say that I have been deeply touched by the works of Sheikh Maududi (Rahmatullah Alaih), particularly his Tafseer.

    The narrow-mindedness and hypocrisy of my dearest Bangladeshi brothers and sisters is breath-taking. Dare I say that it is this approach that has held back Bangladesh in terms of progression in this Dunya and the mission of attaining Akhirah. Might I ask how many of the critics have actually diligently and impartially studied the works of Maududi before imparting hate-filled sermons and criticisms? How have some of our brothers derived a conclusion that Maududi’s contributions have been rejected all round the world? Might I also ask what exactly is the lesson to be learnt from Bangladesh? What precisely is there for Bangladesh to be proud of? Female presidents who don’t uphold the virtues of Islam in practice or conduct, and if anything, will promote a narrow brand of Islam which suits their political aspirations? Or is it depriving of the Ummah and Bangladeshi brothers and sisters of the Ilm from the excellent work done by Alims like Maulana with the Tafseer? What Alims have Bangladesh produced on the world arena that are recognised and respected amongst the wider Fuqaha?

    To baselessly label an Alim as a shaitan and someone enticing terrorism out of hatred is far from a conduct of a God-fearing Muslim. Astaghfirullah! Might I say that if my brothers and sisters in Pakistan and Bangladesh were actually adopting the works of Maududi in their lives, they would be far far away from the detriment they find themselves in today. Brothers and sisters, please remember we all have to answer to Allah SWT for our deeds and actions. Also before we criticise an Alim, let us all have a deep, hard look at ourselves and our levels of Iman and Ilm, ask what gives us the right to loathe and criticise?

    So what precisely was Bangladesh’s beef with Maududi? The fact that he was involved in politics and Bangladesh didn’t get the rub of the green and were hard-done by? Or is it that many Bangladeshi brothers and sisters, particularly my esteemed Tablighi brothers exclude politics as a part of Islam, particularly the way things panned out for Bangladesh?

    Not for a second do I say that Pakistan should be proud of its history – far from it, and the evidence is in the thug that rules the place now. This Bangla-Pak rivalry is nothing to be proud of either.

    Brs and Sisters, open up your minds and hearts, give up nationalism and adopt true brotherhood and the boundary-less nation of Allah and Islam.

    May Allah SWT forgive my errors and the mistakes of my fellow brothers and sisters in Islam.

    Wassalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Rarakatuh,

    Moududi is saitan.In 1971 jamat e islam and its student and youth wing killed millions muslims in Bangladesh.Moreover they raped apprximately half milloon ranging from eight years old child to seventy years old women in the name of islam.These jamai saitans are not arrested only for defaming islam but also their war crimes.their activities are still same even at preseny.These demons are known to bangladeshis as trecherous as they kill their oponent instead of facing them politically
