On the call of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, the pre-announced 48-hour total blockade of roads, waterways and railways was observed on Sunday and Monday on November 5 and 6. In support of the blockade, Jamaat-e-Islami Dhaka Metropolis South has organized protest marches, picketing and rallies at various spots in the capital. At that time traffic was limited throughout the capital. The residents of Dhaka City South spontaneously observed Jamaat’s blockade without taking out their cars and horses and without opening their shops despite threats from law enforcement and Awami League leaders. Through this, the general people’s attitude of distrust towards the government has become more clear. Nurul Islam Bulbul, Central Executive Council member of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and Amir of Dhaka Metropolitan South, congratulated and thanked the people of the city on behalf of the Dhaka Metropolis South Jamaat for making the blockade successful in the second phase.
Nurul Islam Bulbul said that due to the blockade, traffic in the capital has been noticed much less than on normal days. There was an excess of rickshaws on the road during the blockade. According to reports at the inter-district bus terminals, no long-distance vehicles have left the Syedabad bus terminal in the last two days due to the blockade and no long-distance vehicles have entered the capital Dhaka. Due to the blockade, many did not leave their homes. This is why the people’s blockade succeeded.
He said that the angry masses have come down on the streets to face the government’s oppression, murder, terrorism and anarchy. They fully observed the blockade and informed that the Jamaat-e-Islami movement is for the people’s right to vote and rice. To establish a caretaker government. Our movement Ameer Jamaat Dr. For the release of Shafiqur Rahman and all the activists and scholars. We are protesting against mismanagement, irregularities and corruption in the country. To put food in the mouths of the people of the country by forcing them to control the price of goods. Our movement is for the liberation of the people of this country, the restoration of democracy and the protection of the independence and sovereignty of the country. This illegal government is depriving the people and wants to come back to power in a fascist manner like in the past 2014 and 2018. But today the people are united, the opposition parties are united. The people of this country do not want to see this dictatorial government in power in the future.
