Facebook page ‘Moja losss?’ admin arrested

12 December 2015, Nirapad News: The members of Rapid Action Battalion have arrested the admin of Facebook-based social campaigning page Moja losss? on charge of spreading anti-state propaganda.

Moja losss? admin Refayat Ahmed, 28, was picked up from the capital’s Bashundhara Residential area around 4:30pm Thursday, soon after the popular social networking site Facebook was unblocked in Bangladesh after 22 days.

Confirming the arrest, RAB legal and media wing Assistant Director Major Maksudul Alam told the Dhaka Tribune: “He was arrested for spreading anti-state propaganda through his Facebook fun page Moja losss?”

He will be handed over to the Vatara police, said the RAB official.

Earlier in April this year, the page which has been vocal against the sexual attacks on women at TSC that took place on Pohela Boishakh, has announced that they will be closing down due to death threats.
