While persisting in his Anti-Pakistan ideology, Maududi wrote in one of his books, *"If we have ever uttered a single word in the favor of creation of Pakistan, it must be proved with references. " That is why Jamat-e-Islami also did not support the Muslim League, the largest Muslim party, in the core election of 1946.
After the creation of Pakistan, Jamaat-e-Islami was divided into separate Indian and Pakistani organisations. Pakistan () officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, is a country located in South Asia, Southwest Asia, Middle East and The Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh originates from Jamaat wing in the then East Pakistan.

One of Jamat's top leader, Mujahid’s statement on “Daily Sangram” on October 15th ,1971
In his autobiography, Golam Azam wrote the following:
26 March 1971:
First driver took me to Dhaka university area. Saw the brutal sceneray, mass killing of man-woman, child,livestock. Then went to NayaBazar , sometimes on the road and sometimes on rickashw there are dead bodies. Looks like an army are in war with enemy. I think to suppress the protesters only killing threat was enough instead of killing. But military advisors in reality have different view of suppress any protest. …Some questions came out in my mind. Will Bangladesh get the true independency after being separated from Pakistan by Indian help ? 7/8 days passed on this thinking.
3 April 1971:
Secretary General of Nezami Party, Moulavi Farid Uddin Ahmad called me and informed that he and Khaza Nazimuddin decided to meet General Tikka Khan. Tikkha Khan asked us to go meet him on 4th April. I surprisely asked about who was behind the meeting. He replied “we want to meet and Tikka Khan also wants to meet leaders who believe in united Pakistan”. I talked with Dhaka city Ameer Khurram Murad and decided to go meet General Tikka Khan. We met Tikkha khan and Rao Forman Ali there. Rao Foman ali told us that “Awami League wants to separate from Pakistan and be servant of India. But we are unable to make people understand this. You are known leaders to people. If you speak to people about these, people will accept it. If you broadcast the speech on radio it will easily be received by people. We have arranged the recording here. We can record and broadcast today. “Rao Formam Ali said all these on such a beautiful way that Nurul Amin instantly agreed to record his speech and so as two other of my accompanies. But I said, I need time to make the speech contents. Thus I took time to discuss with my fellows. After discussing with Khurram Murad, Provincial Secretary Abdul Khaleq, Central Nayeb Amir Abdur rahim we made a draft of speech without mentioning Awami League, Independence or any other army action. We mentioned that India can’t be our friend and India would conquer our country under current situation.
Rezakars used to guard where there was a threat of Mukti Bahini attacks. Mukti Bahini used to dynamite bridges to disturb movement of armed military. So, Rezakar party started to guard these areas. Mukti Bahini used to come at schools to convince students of joining Mukti Bahini, so Rezakars also started guarding schools to prevent the coming of Mukti Bahini. Electricity supply sources were also guarded by rezakars. On last days of April, Peace Committee was formed in a meeting at Nurul Amin’s residence. There I told the meting that we sincerely wanted to keep Pakistan united. With everybody’s agreement peace committee was formed.
My Feeling on 16th December,1971
Although BBC was giving news against Pakistan, I had no other source of getting information about East Pakistan. On last days of Pakistan army’s surrender I became worried that because of Pakistan army’s surrender there would be no control on law and order. Indian army cannot restore law and order. Under this circumstances, secular, leftists Mukti Bahini would carry a mass-killing . In other cities they would carry further brutal actions. Those who are Islamic activists would be tortured by Mukti Bahini.

Due to lack of any credible evidence of war crimes, Bangladesh's supreme court had to allow Azam to have a Bangladeshi passport and continue its political activities. Imam died a few years later, and since then no protests against Jamaat alleging war crimes has occurred.
Bangladesh police arrested Jamaat-e-Islami chief and former Industry Minister Matiur Rahman Nizami from his residence in the capital in a graft case on 19 May 2008. Earlier, two former Cabinet Ministers of the immediate past BNP-led alliance government, Abdul Mannan Bhuiyan and Shamsul Islam were sent to Dhaka Central Jail after they surrendered before the court.
