Zafar Iqbal’s attacker Faizul was involved in militancy, says his brother Enamul
Enamul Hasan, the elder brother of Foyzur Rahman Faizul who launched a knife attack on eminent writer Prof Mohammed Zafar Iqbal, has said he was aware of Faizul’s involvement in militancy. Sylhet Metropolitan Magistrate Haridas Kumar on Tuesday recorded his statement under Section 164 for over two hours after police produced him before the court around 1:30pm. Sylhet Metropolitan Police’s Assistant Commissioner (prosecution) Amulya Kumar said: “Enamul admitted that he was aware of his brother Faizul’s involvement in militancy. He also told interrogators that he fled their home following the incident and carried away mobile phones and a CPU used by Faizul.” Earlier, on Sunday, Faizul confessed in court to launching the attack on Zafar Iqbal to kill the noted author. Amulya had said: “Faizul in his statement admitted to planning the attempt to murder. He has also mentioned that he was inspired to attack Zafar Iqbal after watching many extremist videos on YouTube.”

“When he was working at a computer servicing shop at the city’s Raja Mansion area, someone had given him a memory card filled with Waz (Islamic sermons). He said he was inspired after hearing those sermons and decided to carry out the attack,” Amulya said. During a program at the Mukta Mancha at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology on March 3, Faziul had stabbed Zafar Iqbal in the back of his head and was subsequently caught by the students. However, the eminent writer, who also teaches at that university, made a full recovery after being treated at the Combined Military Hospital in Dhaka for 11 days. Over the next few days after the attack, Faizul’s parents, one uncle and brother were detained in Sylhet and Gazipur. They were later remanded for different terms
