New statement from The Global Islamic Media Front and Anṣār Allah Bangla Team: “Glad Tidings: And Refuting the Lies of the Media”

All praise is due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, and his Companions. And thereafter:

The Exalted says:

O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done. (Al-Hujurat, 6)

We give glad tidings to the dear Ummah that the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) will be the only official outlet for “Ansarullah Bengali” statements, hence, any statements, media releases, articles attributed to Ansarullah Bangla that are not published through GIMF are not authentic and are considered fake.

The kafir media recently reported that a so-called “Ansarullah Bangla Team-13” sent letters threatening to kill tens of academics, journalists, and politicians in Bangladesh. Ansarullah Bengla Team denies any link whatsoever to this alleged group, and asks the media to maintain their professionalism and to verify the source of the news and investigate before reporting fake statements. The targets have already been identified and they know who they are. Anyone who defiles the honor of our beloved Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and distorts our religion and its Shariah, will meet the same fate as those atheist bloggers who were sent to the Hellfire.

The only authorized source for the statements from Ansarullah Bengla is the Global Islamic Media Font on Fida’a, Shamoukh
and Twitter [Redacted]

But honour belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not.
