Benazir Ahmed says it is an internal matter of India and they have nothing to say about it

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Director General Benazir Ahmed has said that if anyone tries to create anarchy over the Kashmir issue, stern action will be taken against them. 

"It is an internal matter of India. We have nothing to say about it. But stricter legal action will follow against whoever tries to create unrest centring on the issue," he said.

The RAB chief was addressing a press conference at the battalion headquarters in Dhaka Friday on Eid security measures. 

He said: "We know that there are some ultra Islamists in Bangladesh who are under our surveillance for 24 hours." 

In another media briefing, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit chief Additional Commissioner Monirul Islam also said: "It will not be wise for us to comment on the matter, as Kashmir issue is an internal affair of India." 

In another context, terming militancy a global problem, he said: "The flow of any regional or international event often encourages or discourages militants.

"Many believe, the Sri Lanka church attack was carried out as revenge over the New Zealand mosque shooting. After the two incidents, there was a possibility of militant attacks here in Bangladesh, but that did not happen due to our precaution, and strict surveillance." 

He also said: "We are vigilant so that no regional or international event can encourage recruitment or militant activities in Bangladesh." 

In Rohingya camps, Monirul said there is no atmosphere suitable for spreading militancy.

He, however, expressed fear that once the Rohingya children grow up at the camps, they may try to get linked to militancy.
