Police provide security for Sultana Kamal
Police are providing security for the rights activist Sultana Kamal after the radical Islamist group Hefazat-e-Islam publicly threatened her with violence. Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Ramna Division and the Detective Branch (DB) have taken joint measures for her safety.

She was also asked to contact the police immediately if needed. A DMP source said DB officials had met the rights activist and asked her about her daily movements. They had assured her of providing security.

Dhanmondi police station Officer-in-Charge Md Abdul Latif told the Bangla Tribune: “We are providing security to her. We are taking this matter seriously.” She argued with a Hefazat representative that if the group's position was that no religious edifice should be put in the court premises, by the same argument the mosque that is inside the premises should not be there either.

They also threatened her with violence and said she would share the same fate as the exiled author Taslima Nasrin.
