Barrister Abdur Razzaq

Barrister Abdur Razzaq resigned from Jamaat-e-Islami on Friday as he said the party failed to apologise for its anti-liberation war role in 1971 and reform the organisation based on reality.

The Jamaat assistant secretary general sent his resignation letter from the UK to Jamaat ameer Maqbul Ahmed on Friday morning.

In his resignation letter, signed by his personal assistant Kausar Hamid, cited two reasons behind his resignation from the party.

He said that Jamaat did not apologise to people for its anti-liberation war role in 1971 and the party could not reform itself in light of the reality of the 21st century considering the political change in other Muslim majority countries.
