Alleging that the Qatar-based media outlet is intriguing against Bangladesh as a mouthpiece of anti-liberation force Jamaat-e-Islami, the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) has demanded that the Al Jazeera’s broadcast be banned here.
“Al Jazeera has been distorting the history of our great liberation war for long and continuously sparking militancy,” IEB executive committee leaders said in a statement on Friday.
They said Al Jazeera was not only spreading biased news in case of Bangladesh, but also their role in this regard was well known in the
international arena, reports BSS.
In the Western world, Al Jazeera is seen as an indirect instigator of terrorist activities, the IEB leaders added.
They called for taking legal action against the news channel for “conspiring against Bangladesh” and Jamaat-e-Islami’s “paid agent” David Bergman, a
convict of International Crimes Tribunal.
