Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh still getting plenty of funds from zakat

Flow of money from local, foreign sources remains intact despite arrest of top brass

Financial strength of militant organisation Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh has been a grave concern for law enforcement agencies as the banned outfit is reportedly getting more than Tk 50 lakh a month from local and foreign sources.

JMB’s activities have lately appeared on the wane following the arrest of its top brass, including its chief Moulana Saidur Rahman, and explosives experts.

But law enforcers involved with anti-militancy drives believe its network of financial support survives intact. The flow of fund in the form of supporters’ monthly contributions, Zakat and donation apparently remains uninterrupted.

The officers, however, could not say who handles the funds after the arrest of Saidur in May. The JMB chief himself was in charge of its finance division.

Of their monthly earning, around Tk 6 lakh is being sent by around 3,000 JMB supporters staying in Australia, England, Italy, Canada, Malaysia and middle-east countries, according to a statement made by Saidur at Taskforce for Interrogation cell recently.

They send cash to their families mainly via people including friends and relatives. A portion of the money goes to JMB fund.

Is Mayor Bloomberg Finally Starting to Make Cents?

Mayor Bloomberg is not making sense. He is not saying, “Lets slow down, New Yorkers are hurting”.   He is not saying, “Tolerance and respect goes both ways”. He is not saying “Wait, there are concerns about the affiliations of Imam Rauf, and his source of funding”.

Mayor Bloomberg is not making sense.

Or is he?

Michael Bloomberg the businessman is making sense. Dollars and cents. Millions of dollars and cents.   Mayor Bloomberg and Imam Rauf are building Shariah bridges together.
