In a letter, sent to the home ministry on Tuesday, the Hefazat leaders requested for speedy release of the party’s activists, who were arrested following Hefazat protest against the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in late March. Their staged demonstrations in Dhaka and elsewhere caused multiple casualties

They also requested to stop the ongoing arrests, especially in Chittagong’s Hathazari and Brahmanbaria.

Earlier, the Hefazat leaders met the home minister on the night of April 19 with a similar request.

The leaders also said in the letter that all the cases filed against the leaders and activists of Hefazat-e-Islam in 2013 should be withdrawn as per the previous discussion. They also asked to make arrangement for reopening Qawmi Madrasas which were closed under the direction of the government.

On May 5, 2013, Hefazat laid siege to Dhaka's Shapla Chattar area unleashing inexpressible atrocities in and around the capital.
