Hefajat’s Nayeb-e-Ameer lands in jail after remand

Hefajat-e-Islam's Nayed-e-Ameer Ahmad Abdul Quader has been landed in jail following a remand in a case filed over Hefajat mayhem in the Capital in 2013. 

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Yasmin Ara passed the order on Friday. 

Police produced the accused Abdul Quader before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate's Court after a five-day remand. The investigating officer of the case requested to keep him in jail till the end of the investigation. Following the application, the court ordered to sent him to jail.

Meanwhile, on April 25, the police produced him before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate's Court with 10 days remand prayer. Following the petition, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim's court granted him a five-day remand. The day before, he was arrested from Agargaon in the evening of April 24.

Abdul Quader was once central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatra Shibir. He is also the secretary general of the Khilafah Majlis, a member organization of the 20-party alliance. When Shibir was declared an affiliate of Jamaat-e-Islami in 1982, Ahmad Abdul Quader became involved in an ideological conflict with Jamaat. He then voluntarily resigned from Shibir. In 1983, he founded the Islamic Jubo Shibir. He is currently the secretary general of the Khilafat Majlis, a partner of the 20-party alliance.

Meanwhile, on May 5, 2013, the leaders and activists of Hefazat-e-Islam laid siege to Dhaka. In the name of the blockade, Hifazat workers vandalized and set fire to vehicles and public and private facilities in Motijheel, Paltan, and Arambagh areas of the capital with sticks, sharp weapons, and firearms. A case was filed with the Paltan police station following the mayhem.

Recently, Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh carried out violent and destructive activities in various places including Baitul Mukarram Mosque, Paltan, Jatrabari. Later, several cases were filed in different police stations of the capital. Various government intelligence agencies, including the police, are investigating the case.

As part of the investigation, eyewitnesses of the incident, the information provided by the detainees, as well as video footage of the incident are being reviewed to identify those involved. Police are arresting the suspects soon after it was confirmed.
