A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Obaidul Hasan fixed this day of hearing on Monday.

Bangladesh Tariqat Federation Secretary General Rezaul Haque Chandpuri along with two others applied for a ban on Jamaat-e-Islami not being able to claim the party as a legitimate political party until the leave-to-appeal is settled on June 26.

Before this, on August 1, 2013, another writ was filed against the decision of the High Court canceling the registration of Jamaat in the Election Commission.

Besides, on June 26, Chandpuri and two others filed a contempt of court petition for holding a public meeting as a political party, even though the appeal against Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Shafiqur Rahman and five leaders is pending.

Some senior government officials were also charged with contempt of court for allowing Jamaat-e-Islami to hold its program in Dhaka.

A case of contempt of court has been filed against Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Ghulam Parwar, Central Nayeb Ameer Abdullah Mohammad Taher, Metropolitan South Ameer Nurul Islam Bulbul and Dhaka Nayeb Ameer Helal Uddin.

Home Ministry Senior Secretary (Public Security Department) Mostafizur Rahman, Bangladesh Police Inspector General Chowdhury Abdullah Al Mamun and Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Khandaker Golam Farooq have been made defendants in the writ of contempt of court.

On July 27, 42 prominent citizens of various professions applied to the Supreme Court seeking permission to present arguments against Jamaat in the contempt of court case.

Among the applicants are educationist and historian Syed Anwar Hossain, writer and researcher Shariar Kabir, educationist Shyamoli Nasrin Chowdhury, actor-playwright Ramendu Majumder and others.

Earlier, on July 31, 47 supporters of Jamaat-e-Islami applied to the Supreme Court for permission to present arguments against the High Court’s decision to cancel the registration of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Among them are former Jamaat MPs Syed Abdullah Mohammad Taher, Hamidur Rahman Azad and Hafeza Asma Khatun.
