After taking action against the Hifazat leaders involved in violence and sabotage, they are now looking for their ‘fuelers and financiers’.
Investigations are also underway into Hefazat, Jamaat-e-Islami and BNP-financing businessmen, bureaucrats and police members who have directly and indirectly sided with them. Intelligence surveillance has been increased in this regard.
There are a few important businessmen on this long list of suspects. Narayanganj Jatiya Party MP Liaquat Hossain Khoka’s involvement is being investigated ‘seriously’. Multiple government sources have confirmed this information. According to them, the role of the police and the civil administration in fulfilling their duties is also being scrutinized. It is also seen how dependable the high level officials of the Prime Minister’s Office are. It is learned that the then OC of Sonargaon Police Station Rafiqul Islam has already been sacked for failing to discharge his duties after taking action against the rioters. ASI Golam Rabbani, who was working at the In-Service Training Center in Kushtia, has been suspended after he took to Facebook Live to protest against the controversial Hifazat leader Mamunul. Surveillance is on government bureaucrats-police members as well as businessmen and business leaders who take advantage of government facilities. BNP-Jamaat involvement is being seen in their case.
According to the source, many of those businessmen used to pay money to Jamaat-BNP openly or secretly. Now he is secretly or openly helping Hifazat. The phone call lists, bank accounts and social media of some of these traders are being checked and cross-checked. Strict action will be taken only if there is involvement in providing money or fueling sabotage. They will be kept under strict surveillance for the next two years. According to multiple sources at the policy-making level of the government, Bangladesh has been able to keep the life and livelihood of the people afloat when the whole world came to a standstill during the Corona period. Even in Corona, the country’s economic growth, food production has increased. When everything was going normally under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, suddenly the non-political organization Hefazat-e-Islam carried out infernal violence in the country under the pretext.
Hefazat-e-Islam started the ordeal on the occasion of the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence and the centenary of Mujib, with the arrival of the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. They have been wreaking havoc in Brahmanbaria, Hathazari in Chittagong and Baitul Mukarram Mosque area in Dhaka for three days since March 26. In Hathazari and Brahmanbaria, there have been incidents of vandalism, including arson attacks on police stations. At least 18 people were killed. This violence is considered to be mainly to destabilize the government. On the other hand, the joint secretary general of Hefazat Mamunul Haque was arrested by the people including a woman at a resort in Narayanganj. The resort was attacked and vandalized. Horrific information is coming out after the recent arrest of Hefazat leaders in the Hefazat riots and the Motijheel riots in 2013. At that time, information is coming out about meeting with the top leader of BNP, providing money to businessmen and fueling sabotage. There are allegations of direct and indirect cooperation of the police and bureaucrats.
The source said that there is a class of businessmen and bureaucrats who are always in government. They have been openly funding BNP-Jamaat in the past or even three years ago. But now that the foundation of the government is strong, they are secretly giving money to Hefazat-e-Islam and Jamaat-e-Islam. Because if the government is unstable, they benefit. That is why he is now relying on custody. Therefore, an attempt is being made to create chaos with money and to make the Alem Samaj of the country face the Awami League government. But the government wants to handle everything very carefully. For this, these fuels are being sought. Meanwhile, not only businessmen and bureaucrats, but also Jatiya Sangsad opposition Jatiya Party MP Liakat Hossain Khoka’s fuel has come to the notice of several organizations in Narayanganj’s Sonargaon resort. Because he has been in custody for a long time. There are also allegations that he is patronizing the local custody.
He addressed French President Emanuel Macron at a discussion meeting and prayer meeting on the life and work of the late Amir Shah Ahmad Shafi of Hefazat-e-Islami on November 2 last year at Aminpur ground in Sonargaon municipality. He would kill if he found Macron in front of him. Narayanganj-3 MP Liakat Hossain Khoka uploaded a 13-minute video of the speech on his Facebook page. As seen in the video, Liaquat Hossain Khoka says, ‘I just want to say one thing, today those who will criticize, mock about my favorite prophet, I want to say as a Muslim, I am not a member of parliament now, I want to say to the Prime Minister (President) of France, today If you were in front of me, I would kill you. After killing, I would go to the gallows laughing. ‘
