Shahidul: New IGP will face three major challenges
Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque has observed that new IGP Javed Patwari will face three major challenges while in office. These are maintaining law and order during the 11th parliamentary polls slated for December, improving the pro-people policing system, and stamping out militancy and religious extremism, he said on Friday. Among them, maintaining law and order and ensuring a tolerant and peaceful atmosphere during the polls will be the biggest challenge for Javed, Shahidul said while addressing an award giving ceremony organized for winners of an annual sports competition at Shaheed Police Smrity College in Mirpur of Dhaka. Javed will assume office as IGP on January 31, according to a notification issued by the Home Ministry’s public security division on Thursday. The incumbent IGP said he was hopeful that the new IGP would successfully deal with the challenges with his wisdom and competence. “He (Javed) is a batch mate of mine in the police force. He has been serving the force for 32 years and is an incredibly experienced officer,” Shahidul added. “I hope Javed Patwari will take the pro-people policing system forward that we launched, as it inspires a sense of cooperation between the police and the masses.” Militancy has not been completely rooted out, and there is still work left to do, he said.

“We have busted many militant hideouts with the help of our dedicated officers. But, militancy could not be rooted out as it a global problem. The challenge still remains.” Emerging from the event, Shahidul told reporters: “Politicians work for welfare of the country’s people. The police are always ready to cooperate with them when they need its assistance in this regard. “But they [politicians] should not try to use the force for their personal agenda, and refrain from politicizing it.” The outgoing IGP also lauded his force for its competence and courage. Bio of the new IGP Born in 1960 in Chandpur sadar upazila, Javed Patwari completed his MA from Dhaka University before joining Bangladesh Police through the sixth Bangladesh Civil Service examinations. Before heading the special branch, he had worked as the special superintendent of police in the Criminal Investigation Department from 1996 to 1999. He played a significant role in collecting information for “Karagare Rojnamcha” – a book chronicling Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s time behind bars. After taking charge of SB, Javed took initiatives to preserve thousands of classified reports on Bangabandhu from 1948 to 1971 kept at the special branch’s archive.
