Police blamed conflict over the mosque’s management committee for the incident

At least 12 men were injured in an attack by self proclaimed Hefazat-e-Islam activists at a mosque in Gaibandha’s Sundarganj on Friday.

Police blamed conflict over the mosque’s management committee for the incident.

Silamoni mosque’s Imam Motlob Uddin said the attackers had long been identifying themselves as Hefazat activists. They snatched the mic from the Imam after the Jumma prayers and preached about Hefazat.

They attacked the devotees when they tried to intervene, Imam Motlob informed.

The injured are being treated at various hospitals in the district.

A case is being filed at Sundarganj Police Station regarding this issue.

Officer in Charge Bulbul Islam said it was not an attack by Hefazat activists. “Disagreements over the mosque’s committee is the reason for this untoward incident,” he added.
