Hefazat chief Shafi out of danger
Hefazat-e-Islam chief Shah Ahmed Shafi's health condition has improved, his personal secretary says. Shafi was flown to Dhaka from Chittagong on Tuesday and admitted to the intensive care unit at Asgar Ali Hospital in Gandaria. The 96-year-old has been suffering from various old age complications, according to Azizul Haque Islamabadi, central organising secretary of Hefazat. Shafiul Alam, personal secretary to Shafi, told the Dhaka Tribune on Wednesday that Hefazat leader's condition had improved. "Doctors have been able to identify some problems but they said the problems are not major," he added. Shafi was being treated at a private hospital in Chittagong after he had fallen sick on May 18. "Doctors say they hope He will get well within a few days," the personal secretary said. “There is nothing to worry about his health. He is out of danger.” Shafi, the supreme leader of radical group Hefazat that eyes Shariah law in the country, is widely criticised for his views towards atheists and secularists, women and various social issues. Militant group Ansarullah Bangla Team, an al-Qaeda affiliate, has killed nearly a dozen secular activists and war crimes trial campaigners since the Shahbagh movement in 2013, after Shafi advocated death for its organisers terming them atheists. The nonagenarian is the rector of Hathazari Madrasa, and chairman of Befaqul Madarisil Arabia Bangladesh, the largest Qawmi Madrasa board in the country.
