Ebtedayee madrasa teachers have threatened to go on an indefinite hunger strike from Tuesday if their demand of nationalization of all ebtedayee madrasas – certified by the Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board – is not met by Monday.

Kazi Mokhlesur Rahman, secretary general of Bangladesh Independent Ebtedayee Madrasa Teachers Association, made the announcement during their sit-in programme in front of the National Press Club on Monday.

Mokhlesur said: “We had submitted a memorandum to the prime minister during a human chain on November 10 last year and gave December 31 as an ultimatum to meet our demands.

“Since we did not receive any response until December 30, we began our sit-in programme from January 1.”
