The post was in support of Mamunul, but not against the government, maintains the fired imam

An imam in Bogra's Dhunot was sacked for his Facebook status favouring Hefazat-e-Islam's Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque.

On Tuesday afternoon, imam Murshidul Islam of Dhunot Upazila Health Complex Jame Masjid received a letter from mosque authorities in this regard.

Murshidul Islam was the imam of the mosque for about 12 years and lived with his family in the government quarters.

On April 3, he posted a status supporting Mamunul Haque during the controversial incident at Royal Resort in Narayanganj.

The imam was suspended as the mosque management committee noted his post that day.

On Sunday, the upazila nirbahi officer (UNO) and members of the mosque committee had a meeting at the upazila health complex.

Dhunot Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Hasanul Hashib said the imam of the mosque had been sacked permanently as per the decision reached in the meeting.

Imam Murshidul Islam contends that the status was in favour of Mamunul Haque, but not against the government.

“I even apologized to everyone for the incident, deleting the status,” he said.
