Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday punitive measures will be taken as per law against those involved in destructive activities in the name of Islam.
“People will not accept any anti-Islamic activities in the name of religion. Defamation of Islam for a few people won’t be tolerated. I will tell the people of the country to have patience, everyone has to step forward with patience,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while delivering her winding up speech of the 12th session of the 11th Parliament, reports UNB.
Talking about recent activities, vandalism and mayhem of Hefazat-e-Islam, she said that they are destroying the holy religion completely through their destructive and anti-social activities.
“Many people lost their lives due to their activities, even on March 26 many people lost their lives, for these they (Hefazat) are solely responsible,” she said.
Sheikh Hasina alleged that BNP and Jamaat are there behind Hefazat. “Hefazat is not alone, BNP and Jamaat are with them,” she said.
