BNP vice-chairman meets Hefazat chief Shafi
Bangladesh Nationalist Party Vice-Chairman Mir Mohammad Nasir Uddin called on Hefazat-e-Islam chief Shah Ahmed Shafi on Friday. The meeting coincided with the four-year anniversary of the mayhem caused by the radical Islamist group at Shapla Chattar in Motijheel on May 5, 2013. Mir Nasir spent some time with Shafi at Al-Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Moinul Islam Madrasa at Hathazari in Chittagong. The surprise visit of the BNP leader, however, fuelled swirling speculation in the media when the top brass of BNP are quite vocal against the recent AL-Hefazat ties. When asked for his comment over the visit, Mir Nasir told the Dhaka Tribune that it was merely a regular visit. “As you know, both of us are residents of Hathazari area. I never miss the opportunity to meet him [Shafi] whenever I pay a visit to my village. This is purely a personal visit and there is nothing political about it,” said Mir Nasir. “I have known him for more than 50 years. Shafi is ailing, so I enquired after his health,” added Nasir, who served as the state minister for civil aviation and tourism during BNP’s tenure. Anas Madani, Hefazat central publicity secretary and son of Shafi, Munir Ahmed, press secretary to Hefazat chief, Nur Mohammad and Solaiman Manju, convener and member secretary of Hathazari upazila unit of BNP, Muslim Uddin, joint convener among others also attended the meeting.
