Bhola clash: Hefazat-e-Islam announces nationwide programme

Hefazat-e-Islam today announced a nationwide protest programme to press home their demands including punishment of the police personnel “responsible for the death of four people” during a clash in Bhola yesterday.

Maulana Babu Nagari, secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam, announced the programme during a press conference on Al Jamiatul Ahliya Darul Ulum Moinul Islam Madrassa premises in Chattogram’s Hathazari area this noon.

Their demand also includes “punishment of the person who put the hate-post on Facebook and compensation for the families of those who were killed and injured in yesterday’s clash”.

Babu Nagari during his speech said that Hefajat conducted an investigation regarding the “hate conversation in question. The investigation found that it was done deliberately by the owner of the Facebook profile himself and no hacking took place, he claimed.

“We are forming a five-member probe body to conduct deeper investigation into the issue,” Babu Nagari added.

Babu Nagari also said that if the government would have accepted the original 13-point demand by the islamist group, such incident would not have occurred as one of the demands was death penalty for anybody criticising Islam and rasul.

“If the 13-point demand were accepted, Bangladesh would have turned into a heavenly place,” Babu Nagari said.
