Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh leaders protested against the installation of a sculpture of Bangabandhu in Dhaka's Dholairpar area. 

Mamunul Haque, joint secretary general of the radical Islamist group, threatened to throw Bangabandhu's sculpture into the Buriganga River while its chief Junaid Babunagari also threatened to tear down all statues in the country.

On December 5, miscreants smashed an under construction sculpture of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at a key intersection in Kushtia town.

Awami League and other political parties along with socio-cultural organizations continued their protests against the anti-sculpture groups.
