Bangladesh's Jamaat e Islami gets support from West Bengal's Muslim outfits

A mass convention called by 15 prominent Muslim organizations of West Bengal, including the All India Milli Council, All Bengal Minority Youth Federation, West Bengal Sunnat Al Jamat Committee and others was held at Kolkata's Shaheed Minar maidan where they unitedly condemned the ongoing war crimes trial against Jamaat e Islami's leaders and the actions of the Sheikh Hasina government. The protesters termed the Shahbag protests as atheistic and said that anti-Islamic propaganda would not be tolerated at all. They even demanded setting Bangladeshi Islamic orator and leader of the Jamaat, Delwar Hossain Sayeedee free after the war crimes tribunal had awarded him death penalty.
