Jamaat-e-Islami has expelled Mojibur Rahman Monju, a member of its central policymaking body Majlis-ash-Shura and former president of the party’s student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir.

“Our party’s ameer informed about the expulsion of Mojibur Rahman Monju last night (Friday),” Central Nayeb-e-Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former MP Professor Mia Ghulam Parwar told the daily sun on Saturday.

Earlier, Barrister Abdur Razzaq, who held the position of assistant secretary general of the Islamist party, resigned on Friday citing the party’s failure to apologise for its anti-liberation role and reform the charter of the party.  

Mojibur Rahman Monju in a Facebook post said he was informed about his removal from the party at around 7:30 pm on Friday. He also claimed that his proposal for bringing reformation inside the party has created an embarrassing situation in Jamaat.

Monju joined Shibir in 1988 and subsequently joined Jamaat in 2004.
