Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said he could not find any rifts among ruling party ranks in Brahmanbaria’s Nasirnagar that could have been a crucial factor in inciting the attacks there on October 30 and the following week.
“I did not find any internal conflict among the local party unit brass while I was vising Nasirnagar. I would have reported about it to the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina if there was any,” he said while talking to reporters on Sunday.
He made the statement while emerging from a meeting on security management and preparation ahead of the Victory Day celebrations
on December 16.
“However, we have detected some plotters who deliberately staged and executed the attack on the Hindus,” Kamal said.
“The probe team is looking for the owner of a mobile accessories shop, who could prove instrumental in the investigation of the picture that instigated the whole thing,” he added.
Violence flared after a doctored photograph, featuring Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Hindu God Shiva, appeared on the Facebook profile of illiterate Nasirnagar fisherman Rasraj Basu on October 30.
Rasraj is in custody now. Preliminary investigations found that Rasraj does not have the necessary technical skills to reproduce such a picture
