They take for granted that the students will know that jihad means armed struggle in order to impose Islamic law. Only in Western countries where Islamic supremacist groups have been engaging for years in massive campaigns of obfuscation and deception is it considered “Islamophobic” to think that that is what jihad means.
“RU Shibir calls for Jihad again,” from the Daily Star, November 4:
Rajshahi University unit of Islami Chhatra Shibir early yesterday put up posters on the walls of students” dormitories inviting students to join jihad.
The posters carried the slogans “Islam is the only guarantee for independence and sovereignty of Bangladesh” and “Join Chhatra Shibir and engage in jihad”.
Shibir RU unit were credited with making the posters, said Prof Tariqul Hasan.
“Some students panicked after seeing the posters and informed us about the matter,” he said, adding that the posters were probably put up before dawn.
The proctor confirmed that at least six dormitories, out of a total 11, had the posters. The halls are Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman hall, Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Hall, Shaheed Zoha Hall, Shaheed Suhrawardy Hall, Motihar Hall and Madar Bukhsh Hall.
The hall provosts have already employed staff to remove the posters, said the university proctor, adding that the university authorities removed all types of banners and posters from the campus.
