Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami , previously known as Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh  (a.k.a 'Jamaat'), is the largest Islamist political party in Bangladesh. It is one of the largest Islamic parties on the subcontinent, lead by several war criminals of 1971, among whom is the party chief Ghulam Azam (former chief of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami), who was exiled from Bangladesh.

Ashraf Hossain, a leader of Jamaat's student wing Islami Chhatra Sangha, created the Al-Badr militia in Jamalpur District on 22 April 1971. Current Jamaat leader Matiur Rahman Nizami was the supreme commander of this militia. Ian editorial published on the Daily Sangram on November 14, 1971, Nizami stated that (“We believe that our young members will fight side by side with our army to defeat the Hindu forces, and destroy India, and raise the flag of Islam in the whole world").

Jamat confiscates rights of its people and uses Islam and Mohammad to destroy the ideal and existence of Bangladesh. Jamat creates this wrangle and wants

Bangladesh only for Muslims and no non-Muslims have right to be a national leader in

Jamaat strongly opposed an independent Bangladesh, which it considered against Islam. Jammat-e-Islami willingly participated in the puppet democratic movement in Pakistan during the Marshal Law Period declared by General Ayub Khan. An all party democratic alliance (DAC) was formed in 1965. Ghulam Azam was one of the members of that alliance that counted Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani and Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as reluctant members.

The national psychology was betrayed in the misuse of Islam in Bangladesh.
We could not speak in Bangla in the name of Islam. The religion what forbids our national language we no need that religion means Jamat’s religion. Jamat is not the owner of Islam. This is the massage of 21st February 1952. We destroyed our enemy and founded Bangladesh in 1971. Jamat and Pakistan taught us Bangla alphabets are against of Islamic value. If Bangla language, poetry, history, traditions, nationals are wrong then God is wrong. Arabian civilization could not force to change the identity of Bangladesh. Bangladesh or the world is not gift of Arabian God. Bangladesh is the gift of universal God. Saudi Arab and Pakistan could not control the destiny of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh.

The Jamat's militants fought alongside the Pakistan army against the Bengali nationalists. Among the most notorious of the Jamat leaders was Abdul Kader Molla, who became known as "the Butcher of Mirpur," a Dhaka suburb which in 1971 was populated mainly by non-Bengali Muslim immigrants. Such grisly pictures were familiar during the liberation war of 1971. The Pakistani army used to kill the Bangladeshi freedom lovers and hung their dead bodies from the trees. They would at times hung them alive from the trees upside down and light fires below to roast living human beings. Alternatively, they skinned them alive while hanging.

Jamaat was banned after the victory of the Mukti Bahini, and its top leaders fled to West Pakistan. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman , first president of Bangladesh also cancelled the citizenship of Golam Azam, the leader of Jamaat. Azam then moved to London, and other leaders moved to the Middle East. Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was assassinated in 1975, enabling army chief Major general Ziaur Rahman(a former BAKSAL member of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman "Book Source: Tinti sena Obhuthan by Colonel Hamid " ) to seize power. With Rahman's coup, Jamaat again resumed political activities in Bangladesh. Rahman also allowed Azam to return to Bangladesh as the leader of Jamaat.

After the end of military rule in 1990, mass protests began against Azam and Jamaat under war criminal charges headed by Jahanara Imam, an author who lost her two sons and husband in the liberation war. Azam's citizenship was challenged in supreme court as he was holding a Pakistani passport. Due to lack of any credible evidence of war crimes, Bangladesh's supreme court had to allow Azam to have a Bangladeshi passport and continue his political activities. Imam died a few years later of cancer. Recent years have seen a revival in the interest of prosecuting war criminals, many of whom are members of Jamaat-e-Islami, including almost all of its top leaders.

Today, there are an estimated 64,000 madrassas in Bangladesh, divided into two kinds. The Aliya madrassas are run with government support and control, while the Dars-e-Nizami or Deoband-style madrassas are totally independent. The consequences of this kind of madrassa education can be seen in the growth of the Jamat. It did not fare well in the 1996 election, capturing only three seats in the parliament and 8.61% of the votes.16 its election manifesto was also quite carefully worded, perhaps taking into consideration the party's reputation and the fact that the vast majority of Bangladeshis remain opposed to Sharia law and other extreme Islamic practices.

Jamati terrorist cells are organized and operatives are trained by the military personnel of Pakistan Military Intelligence (ISI) and based on al-Quaida model. Jamati terrorist operatives are caught, home and abroad, teamed up with international al-Quaida operatives. Al-Quaida videos are used in training the Jamati operatives in various training camps in northern and southern districts of Bangladesh. 
Recently,Abu Bakar Siddique, a student of Dhaka University who was seriously injured in campus violence on Monday succumbed to his death in Dhaka Medical College Hospital around 9:30 am on Wednesday.
In present,Jamat people have engaged themselves in transparent as well as clandestine activities that are rapidly taking Bangladesh back to the middle ages. Darkness, ignorance, unscientific beliefs, intolerance, cruelty, superstition and terrorism are only a few words that can be used to describe these fundamentalists. The growth of fundamentalism and the decline of civility are plagues that destroy the collective conscience and transform people into mindless beasts. The fundamentalists in Bangladesh are advancing towards their ultimate goal with frightful ease.

The most alarming form of Jamati activism is not the armed terrorism, torture and extortions, but the rapidly expanding Jamati control of the Bangladeshi minds through its domination in the educational institutions and media.
