Ailing Shafi taken to ICU as health deteriorates
Ailing Hefazat-e-Islam chief Shah Ahmed Shafi has been admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Asgar Ali Hospital at Gandaria in Dhaka as his health condition has deteriorated. Azizul Haque Islamabadi, central organising secretary of the Islamist platform, told the Dhaka Tribune that Shafi was flown to Dhaka by an air ambulance on Tuesday and admitted to the hospital. “Shafi Huzur [cleric] has been suffering from various old age complications including high blood pressure and diabetes. He is now taking liquid food through tube. His respiratory problem has also worsened. He is so ill that he can barely speak,” Azizul said. The 96-year-old was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Chittagong city after he fell sick on May 18. The controversial nonagenarian leader, who is known as Boro Hujur (the oldest cleric) among his followers, is heavily lambasted by progressive people for his highly prejudicial views on various social issues and also for the radical Islamist platform’s pledge of Islamising Bangladesh. Shafi is the rector of Al-Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Moinul Islam, also known as Hathazari Madrasa, and the chairman of Befaqul Madarisil Arabia Bangladesh, the largest Qawmi Madrasa board in the country.
