After a brief melee Saturday morning between followers of Maulana Saad Kandhalvi and their opponents at Kakrail mosque, police have established a truce of sorts.
Deputy Commissioner (Ramna zone) Maruf Hossain Sardar said: “We convened an urgent meeting at the mosque with both parties. Two resolutions have been agreed to.
“Firstly, Syed Wasif and Maulana Zubayer cannot enter the mosque till May 1. And two people from each faction have been temporarily banned from the mosque.”
The scholars are: Abdullah Mansur, Dr Erteza Hasan, MahfuzHannan, and Dr Asgar.

DC Maruf said the police evicted all the outsiders from the mosque. He assured the mosque’s everyday schedule can continue after consulting the mosque authorities. All prayers will continue, but no outsiders will be allowed to reside in the mosque.
The situation is expected to come to a close after Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan returns to the country.
