with democracy in the country. The paper is keen to establish how BJI is using its
political objectives, mission, and vision to reach the ordinary people of Bangladesh. In
the process of achieving this objective, the study also investigates the policies, motives,
and experiences of this organization from the historical arena to the current situation.
It also assesses the programmes, contemporary controversies, and policy challenges
of this organization. In examining the engagement and ongoing political activities of
BJI, this study is providing an ethnographic analysis of Bangladesh Jama’at-e-Islam (BJI)
with regard to its role in the democratic movement in the country. The paper particularly
focuses on the national election and adopts a qualitative approach to understand
the purposes and the perceptions of this political party. Overall, descriptive and analytical
methodology has been applied in this paper to narrate the situation related to BJI.
