Protest against attack on Afghan civilians: Hefazat-e-Islam to hold rally Friday
Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh will bring out a procession on Friday to register their protest against the April 2 attack by Afghan special forces that left at least 70 people dead and countless more injured. They will also hold a rally near the north gate of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in Dhaka the same day. Issuing a statement on Tuesday, the hardliner Islamist group also criticized the United Nations and Islamic countries for their apparent silence over the killing of civilians in Afghanistan. On April 2, a religious school in the Dasht-e-Archi district of the Kunduz province was targeted by air raids, resulting in the death of at least 70 people.
