BNP announces demo programme on Oct 23 protesting Bhola incidents

Terming the Bhola clashes premeditated, BNP announced to hold programmes across the country on Wednesday (Oct 23).

BNP Standing Committee member Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain announced the program at a press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office on Monday (October 21). 

"We think the Bhola incident is pre-planned. That’s why Bhola has been stained with blood.” Dr Khandaker Mosharraf said.

He strongly condemned the incident and demanded a fair investigation and exemplary punishment for the culprits.

Earlier on Sunday, at least four people were killed and over 200 others injured in the clash following a demonstration at Eidgah ground in Borhanuddin upazila of Bhola.

According to police and locals, messages containing derogatory remarks about Allah and Prophet Muhammad were sent to several persons from the Facebook ID of Biplob Chandra Shuvo. Screenshots of the messages went viral on Facebook, triggering condemnation and protests.
