Family of the baby alleged that some locals did this since they belong to the Ahmadiyya community

In a shocking incident, some locals reportedly exhumed the body of an infant belonging to the Ahmadiyya community and left it by the road at Ghatura village in Sadar upazila of Brahmanbaria.

The locals of the community are protesting this inhuman move and demanding punishment of the perpetrators after the incident took place on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Swapna Begum gave birth to a child at Christian Memorial Hospital in Brahmanbaria town. As the child was born with some complications, it was kept in an incubator.

However, the infant died at 5:30am on Thursday and was buried at the government-owned graveyard at Ghatura village at 7am on that day.

Soon after the burial, moulvis of different mosques gathered some anti-Ahmadiyya youths by miking through mosque mikes. They later exhumed the body and threw on the road.

After learning of the incident, police came and the family later buried the dead body at another graveyard of the Ahmadiyya community at Kandirpara village at around 11:30am on Thursday. 

Saiful Islam, the father of the infant, said: "Some anti-Ahmadiyya men gathered after my child was buried. They exhumed the body and kept it outside the wall of the graveyard. I could not recognize them as I do not live here."

SM Ibrahim, president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jammat (local unit), said moulvis of different mosques gathered some anti-Ahmadiyya youths and they exhumed the body and threw it on the road. 

Acknowledging the matter, Brahmanbaria Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Selim, said: "The dead body was buried at the graveyard of Ahmadiyya community at Kandirpara village after we spoke with the locals."

When asked whether actions will be taken against the perpetrators or not, the OC did not answer.
