Abdur Rahim, a 30-year-old man, was set on fire by several assailants on the night of May 19 after Tarabi prayers in Kishoreganj’s Katiadi.
According to Rahim’s older brother Abdur Rahman, Rahim was a member of Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi’sTablighJamaat faction, which has been involved in an internecine strife with Maulana Muhammad Jubair Hassan’s faction.
Rahman alleged that the attackers were followers of Saad Kandhalvi.
He said: “Everyone used to adhere to Maulana Saad’s instructions. But ever since the feud began with Maulana Jubair, there have been a lot of difficult situations, the worst being this.”
Rahim’s uncle Mamunur Rashid filed a case with the Katiadi police. Two suspects have been arrested so far.
