Jamaat, an Islamist ally of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), opposed independence from Pakistan, denied accusations that some of its leaders committed murder, rape and torture during the conflict.
The trigger for this year's spasm of unrest came in February when a tribunal set up by the government to investigate abuses during the war sentenced a leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party to life in prison, sparing him execution.
