There was a political motive behind the incident in Comilla, says the minister

Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud on Saturday blamed Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) for engineering violence over the reported desecration of the Holy Quran in Comilla.

“The statement of Mirza Fakhrul proves that BNP-Jamaat is involved in communal incitement,” he said while speaking as the chief guest at the tri-annual conference of Rangunia Upazila Chhatra League in Chittagong.

He said: “BNP-Jamaat has chosen the path of various conspiracies by failing to deal with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina politically.

“There was a political motive behind the incident in Comilla which has provoked communal outrage across the country. “”Fanatical groups including BNP-Jamaat were behind this,” the minister added.

The government of the people’s leader Sheikh Hasina has suppressed the trouble with a strong hand, he said.

Mahmud said that the people vandalising temples and attacking the law enforcers are being identified by CCTV camera footage.

The minister also noted that the masterminds behind the violence will also be brought to justice.
