HistoryEdit

Bangladesh Tarikat Federation was founded in 2005 by Syed Nazibul Bashar Maizvandary. He quit Bangladesh Nationalist Party over its alliance with Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, whom he had accused of supporting terrorists.[1] Bangladesh Tarikat Federation contested the Bangladesh General Election, 2014 and won two parliamentary seats.[2]

Tariqat Federation Secretary General MA Awal attempted to form an coalition of Islamic parties in 2017. The planned coalition would include Bangladesh Khelafat Andolon, Faraizi Andolon, Imam-Ulama Parishad, and Islami Oikya Jote. The movement was opposed by Syed Nazibul Bashar Maizbhandari, chairperson of the party.[3] On 17 April 2018, Syed Nazibul Bashar Maizbhandari removed M.A. Awal from the post of Secretary General. He nominated Syed Rezaul Huq, Presidium member of the party, to replace M.A. Awal.[4] The party sought 30 seats to contest the 2018 general election under the Grand Alliance.[5]
