A delegation of Ulema-Mashaikh (Islamic scholars) met the Prime Minister on Thursday night and placed a six-point demand, including the facebook blocking and the arrest of the bloggers who are reportedly hurting the religious sentiment of people.
Their other demands are passing a bill in the next session of Parliament ensuring the respect for the Prophet (pbuh), immediate release of all the detained Ulema leaders, banning all the Moududiâ€™s books, bringing necessary corrections in religious books, government recognition of all Qaumi madrasahs and declaring Kadianis as non-Muslims and setting up separate graveyards for them.
They met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Ganobhaban and placed the demands. Mufti Ruhul Amin led the Ulema-Mashaikh delegation.
They also said their demands are the same of Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh and urged the government to fulfill those to save the country from confrontations.
The delegation also demanded withdrawal of Fridayâ€™s hartal called for obstructing the long march to Dhaka.
