Muslim Brotherhood: Mir Quasem – Icon of Freedom and Resistance Against Tyranny
Muslim Brotherhood: Mir Quasem – Icon of Freedom and Resistance Against Tyranny
Monday, September 5,2016 21:17

Not long after the anniversary of the martyrdom or execution of Sayyid Qutb at the hands of Egypt's dictators (August 29, 1966), tyrants in Bangladesh executed Mir Quasem Ali, a key leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in Bangladesh, turning Mir – just as their Egyptian counterparts did Qutb – into an icon for each person looking for their rights, for each person seeking to support the true faith: Islam.

When the Egyptian regime executed Sayyid Qutb in 1966, they thought they killed his ideas and ideology; but – as tyrants do in every era and place – they unintentionally immortalized him, inadvertently spread his ideas, and unwittingly introduced the people to his call – his ideology.

Today, they did the same with the martyred leader Mir Quasem Ali, thus making him a symbol of resistance to injustice and an icon of challenge to tyranny and a milestone of steadfastness on the path of truth. He and his followers and supporters in Bangladesh's Jamaat-e-Islami party paid a high price for their resistance to the Zionist scheme and their support for the nation's central issue of Palestine.

Mir Quasem Ali has passed to the realm of afterlife, as many millions do every day. However, he did not leave this world like a defeated weakling, but a proud, dignified leader after doing his duty, handing the banner to his followers to carry, not only in Bangladesh, but in every land and in every country.

We will remain on the path. We will neither alter or change it, by the Grace of God, until we meet Him as martyrs or until the ultimate triumph.

Dr Talaat Fahmi
