The government will have to shoulder responsibility if any untoward incident takes place centring Saturday’s long march, leaders of Hefajat-e-Islam Bangladesh threatened yesterday.
“If the government fails to extend its support to make the long march a success or hatches any plot to foil the programme, it[government] will be held responsible for the situation,” said Noor Hossain Kashemi, convener of the organisation’s Dhaka city unit, while addressing a rally at the capital’s Purana Paltan organised to make the long march successful.
Hefajat-e-Islam Bangladesh, a Qawmi Madrasa-based organisation, last month announced the long march towards Dhaka to press home their several-point demands including the passage of law under which “highest punishment” would be delivered to the “atheist bloggers who insulted Islam.”
Kashemi said they were continuing their movement in a peaceful manner, adding that any hindrance to the movement might create a situation which would bring the government’s downfall.
Several leaders of the organisation spoke at the rally which was followed by a procession.
Earlier on April 1, the organisation leaders in Chittagong threatened to enforce a non-stop hartal from April 7 if the government barred their long march towards Dhaka.

    But this is important thing that Hefajat-e-Islam Bangladesh is Qawmi Madrasa-based organisation in Bangladesh and their expectation is atheist bloggers who insulted Islam government should punish them sincerely .
