Information Minister Hasanul Haque Inu on Thursday said the ongoing war crimes trial will continue despite the politics of Hefajat-e-Islam in the name of religion.
Talking to reporters at Press Information Department, the minister called on the Islamist platform for abandoning their long march towards Dhaka scheduled for Saturday.
â€œProtection of Islam and upholding the dignity of the Prophet (pbuh) are the responsibility of the state and its constitution, not Hefajat-e-Islamâ€, Inu said.
The minister said Hefajat stepped into the trap of BNP-Jamaat and expressed his doubt whether the Islamist platformâ€™s activities are to protect Islam or Jamaat-e-Islam.
He alleged that some pro-Jamaat men undercover of the organisation have been plotting to stop the war crimes trial.
Hefajat-e-Islam declared their programmes not to protect Islam rather Jamaat-Shibir, Inu claimed.
Pointing finger at Shah Ahmed Shafi, the chief of Hefajat-e-Islam, the left leader said, â€œItâ€™s your responsibility to talk about the recent mayhem unleashed by Jamaat-Shibir men, Sayedeesâ€™ appearance on the moon and false news of human chain by the Imams of Kaba for releasing Sayedee.â€
