An Islamic preacher from Keraniganj was arrested on Thursday for comments that allegedly incited temple attacks over the desecration of the Holy Quran in Comilla.

The arrestee was identified as Maulana Abdur Rahim Biplobi, 39, hailed from Dholaipar, Dhaka.

He was arrested at around 7:20am outside Chunkutia Purbapara Jame mosque under South Keraniganj police station by a team of Crime Investigation Department (cyber monitoring cell) led by inspector Mst Shajeda Lata.

On October 13, Maulana Rahim in a waz mahfil in Dhaka said if the perpetrators who kept the holy Quran with a Hindu idol do not get arrested by October 14, an unruly protest will start from each mosque the next day after Jumma prayer.

He also said: “No puja mandap will be spared in Bangladesh.”

His comments spread on social media created extreme reactions among the netizens and public, said CID in a press release.

The cyber monitoring cell of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) immediately marked Abdur Rahim after it came to their notice.

During primary interrogation Abdur Rahim confessed to making inciting statements regarding puja mandaps in his waz, said CID.

A case was filed by CID, under Digital Security Act with Paltan model police station against the accused.
