IGP calls for social movement against militancy

DHAKA:  Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque yesterday called for raising social movement against militancy, saying people from all walks of life will have to work against the menace.

“Islam is the religion of peace. Now some culprits are misleading youths by misinterpreting or partially interpreting Islam. We have to work for motivating youths for a brighter future. Islamic scholars have to work for raising the correct interpretation of Islam among the people,” he said.

IGP Hoque came up with the observations while addressing a seminar titled “Perspective Militancy and Eliminating Terrorism” on the occasion of 14th founding anniversary of daily Amar Kagoj at VIP Lounge of Jatiya Press Club (JPC).

Presided over by Hazi Alauddin, president of the daily’s editorial panel, the seminar was also addressed by principal information officer AKM Shamim Chowdhury, ICT Division secretary Shyam Sunder Sikder, Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) President Manjurul Ahsan Bulbul, among others.

JPC President Shafiqur Rahman presented welcome speech at the seminar.

“Some youths in the country are spreading religious extremism through blogging in the name of free thinking. Our society cannot tolerate this. On another side, militants are killing people in the name of religion, it is also not tolerable,” IGP Hoque added.

BFUJ President in his speech said, “Militancy is a multifaceted problem. This problem cannot be tackled only by using police, army or any law enforcing agency. It has a social perspective. All the people of the society have to come forward in this regard.”

The speakers and the guests observed a minute of silence at the start of the seminar in remembrance of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the members of his family those embraced martyrdom on August 15, 1975.
