According to a list compiled by RAW after Independence, a list obtained from the Pak Army, there were close to 74.000 Razakar "combatants". A majority of them were conscripts from EP Ansars, but the entire political slash military leadership came from Jamaat and "Islamic" parties, including the Muslim League, most notably in Chittagong. We also need to remember Jamaat's close connections with Yahiya and his men within the Pak Army.

Today, most of that leadership is still with the same parties under the now-defunct "protection" of both BNP and BAL at the thana level of party politics.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
