Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has blamed Israeli intelligence agency Mossad for playing role in the rise of militancy in Bangladesh.
“Mossad is putting desperate efforts in Bangladesh. They are supporting militancy to confuse us,” he said while addressing an anti-militancy rally at Shariatpur Police Line on Sunday.
“But the Bengali Muslim community can not be befuddled. Under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, the Olama and Mashayekhs [religious scholars] of the country have already proved that there is no room for militancy in the country,” he added.
The rally was jointly organised by the district police and Community Policing Olama-Mashayekh Forum.
