Professor Mujib demands punishment of the miscreants
Nayeb-e-Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 19th March, 2017 demanding the exemplary punishment of the miscreants who were involved with the incident of humiliating the holy Quran in a room of the religious school in Vagalpur village of the Shundolpur Union under Daudkandi Upazila in Comilla district on last 15th March.
“Under the current regime, several incidents of humiliating the holy Quran and Islam have taken place. But the government has failed to investigate all these incidents and simultaneously failed to punish the miscreants.
The people of the country, particularly the religious scholars are highly aggrieved, angered and dissatisfied with the incident of humiliating the holy Quran in a room of the religious school in Vagalpur village under Daudkandi Upazila in Comilla district. The Islam loving people have taken to the street and hold demonstrations in various places of the country protesting against such unacceptable incident. The government should also investigate whether any ill intention is remaining behind the incident or any other malign quarters are involved with any conspiracies to create anarchy in the country.
I am urging the concerned authorities to investigate into the incident of humiliating the holy Quran and also to punish the miscreants who were involved with this degrading incident.”
