Hefazat-e-Islam refuses to meet Shahbagh youths delegation

Hefazat-e-Islam, a radical Islamist organisation based in Hathazari upazila of Chittagong, on Wednesday refused to hold a meeting with Shahbagh demonstrators.

“There is no question of holding a dialogue with the protesters whom we will not allow to enter Chittagong,” said Azizul Haque Islamabadi, organising secretary of the Islamist group.

Meanwhile, the law enforcers in Feni on Wednesday requested Imran H Sarker, convener of the Shahbagh Gonojagoron Mancha, to return to Dhaka to avert any possible untoward incident during his Chittagong visit.

Imran along with his team was heading towards Chittagong to hold a meeting with Ahmed Shafi, chief of the Hefazat-e-Islam.

The team was in Feni when this report was filed.

However, Imran, also a key organiser of Shahbagh Gonojagoron Mancha, is yet to take any decision whether they will go to Chittagong, said Bappaditya Basu, president of Bangladesh Chhatra Moitree.

On Tuesday, the protesters of Gonojagoron Mancha postponed their Wednesday’s rally in the port city amid threats from radical Islamists and imposition of Section 144 by police in Chittagong.

The Section 144 prohibits gathering of more than five people.

Meanwhile, three homemade bombs were exploded near the Gonojagoron Mancha before the Chittagong Press Club around 8:25pm Tuesday, sending a wave of panic in the area.

Many people were seen running for shelter at the time in the area.

Police detained one person from the spot for his alleged link with the blasts.
