Preparation of list of those instigating militancy underway: IGP
06 December 2015,Nirapad News: Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque said here yesterday there is a directive to prepare a list of those involved in instigating militancy.
“The killings of people and creating threats for public security after distorting ayats of the holy Quran should be stopped as there is no space of those heinous acts in the Islam,” he said while addressing a discussion as the chief guest at police headquarters here last morning.
The discussion titled “Militancy in the eye of Islam: responsibility of police and Olama Mashayak” was organized by Bangladesh Police.
Stressing the need for making public opinion against militancy, the police chief said, “The young generation has been driven to wrong path after distorting the holy Quran.”
The Olama and Mashayak, who were present at the discussion urged the IGP to take measure for stopping telecast of Peace TV as it is acting against the Islam and spreading anti-Islamic sentiment.
In reply, the IGP asked them to inform him and the information minister if they have any document against the Peace TV about its involvement in creating conflict with the Islam.
High officials of police and Islamic scholars were present at the discussion.
