Madrasas are not involved in producing militants, the home minister says

Terming Bangladesh as a role model of curbing militancy and terrorism, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has aid Islam does not allow terrorism and militancy.

“We have successfully controlled militancy following the zero tolerance policy set by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” he said on Tuesday.

Kamal was speaking as the chief guest at the closing ceremony of a two-day “National Conference on Preventing/Countering Violent Extremism 2019” at Bashundhara International Convention Hall, reports BSS.

Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police organized the national conference in collaboration with Stop Violence Coalition Secretariat of UN, USAID and a non-government organization Rupantar.

CTTC Chief and Additional Commissioner of DMP MdMonirul Islam chaired the program.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Mohammad JavedPatwari and DMP Commissioner MdShafiqul Islam addressed the program as special guests.

Bangladesh is a role model in the world for rooting out militancy, the home minister said, adding: “Our law enforcement agencies are working coordinately to curb extremism and militancy.”

He said Madrasas are not involved in producing militants because militancy has no place in Islam. “Peace loving people in this country never liked militancy. It is not accepted that militancy and terrorism will exist in this peaceful country,” he added.

Mentioning that Bangladesh’s people do not give shelter to militancy, he said incidents of target killing took place in the country, but people resisted those incidents unitedly.

“We have to engage our children in welfare activities so that they cannot get involved in extremism and violent activities,” the minister added.

He urged the people not to believe all internet contents.

“We have to use our wit and knowledge to be sure which internet contents are believable and which are not,” he added.
