He will face legal action, says RAB
The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained Rafiqul Islam Madani, popularly known as "shishu bokta" (child preacher), on charges of making provocative anti-state remarks.
He was apprehended in Netrokona on Wednesday, said Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director of RAB’s legal and media wing, according to media reports.
The contentious “child preacher” is reportedly 26 years old, and he himself dislikes being labelled in that manner, reports Bangla Tribune.
Rafiqul would face legal action, Commander Khandaker said.
Earlier, on March 25, police detained Rafiqul from Motijheel during a demonstration protesting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Dhaka visit, but he was released from custody a couple of hours later.
Rafiqul Islam Madani, a preacher whose comments often land him in controversy, is the director of Sawtul Hera Madrasa located Netrokona’s Pashchim Bilaspur area.
