Hefazat now demands removal of all statues from Bangladesh
Islamist group Hefazat-e-Islam has demanded the removal of all statues which were installed by the government. The hardline Islamist pressure group first petitioned the prime minister and the chief justice on the issue on February 14, describing the Lady Justice statue erected at the Supreme Court premises as “anti-Islamic.” Hefazat followed up their request by staging protests in Dhaka, Chittagong and Narayanganj on February 24 to demand the removal or destruction of the Greek goddess statue. “We have asked the prime minister to remove the Greek idol from the Supreme court premises. She has given us hope in this regard,” Hefazat central Organising Secretary Azizul Ahaque Islamabadi said on Wednesday. “In future, we want no more statues to be installed and demand that government remove all statues from the country,” he added. Hefazat’s central Joint Secretary General and Islami Oikya Jote (IOJ) Secretary General Mufti Fayzullah told the Dhaka Tribune that their demand was not aimed at the minority Hindu communities. “Although we demand all statues be removed from the country, it does not mean the removal of religious idols from temples,” he said.
