Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif said the decision to ban Jamaat-e-Islami will be finalized by March next year.
“The High Court has already banned Jamaat-e-Islami from politics by cancelling its registration but the issue is now pending with the Appellate Division. We expect that the issue would be resolved by March,” Hanif said while talking to reporters at Sheikh Hasina’s Dhanmondi office in Dhaka Thursday afternoon.
People have rejected the today’s hartal enforced by Jamaat as public lives remain normal despite the hartal, Hanif said.
On August 2013, the High Court declared Jamaat-e-Islami’s registration as a political party illegal. Later on June 1, 2015, the then Election Commission cancelled Jamaat-e-Islami’s registration.
