Narayanganj district administration has imposed Section 144 to prevent mass gathering of Olama Parishad and Ahle Sunnat Jamaat and also to maintain law and order in the city.

The Section 144, under Criminal Procedure Code 1898, will be effective from 6am on Sunday and continue till further notice.

An order, signed by Deputy Commissioner Jasim Uddin, said that the Olama Parishad and Ahle Sunnat Jamaat called for mass gathering at the same place and same time on Sunday.

The deputy commissioner believes there is an ongoing tension in that area and the law and order situation is likely to deteriorate. Therefore, it is necessary to cancel all meetings and mass gatherings to keep the situation in the place and the adjoining areas normal.

The ban was imposed from Narayanganj City Corporation building to Chasara Shaheed Minar, from Chasara Shaheed Minar to 300-Bed Hospital and adjoining areas, the notice added.

Moreover, three executive magistrates have been instructed to perform their duties separately in Rail Gate No 2, Shaheed Minar and Grindlage Bank junction areas.

Earlier, Deobhogh Madrasa Khatib Harun-or Rashid filed a case against Mufti Alauddin Jihadi, under the Digital Security Act for criticizing the recently departed Hefazat-e-Islam chief Ahmad Shafi on social media.

Following the filing of the case, Alauddin was arrested  on September 20 from his house in Mahmudpur area of Fatullah union.

On Sept 22, police took him on a one-day remand. Since then, there has been increased tension and roadblocks across the city. Meanwhile, the two groups called for mass gathering on Sunday.
