The leader of the student front reportedly demeaned Bangabandhu in the post

Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student front of ruling Awami League, has expelled a leader of its Dhaka University (DU) unit for breaching organizational rules.  

Expelled leader Kabir Hossain was joint general secretary of the Kabi Jasimuddin Hall unit of Chhatra League, according to a statement from Chhatra League issued on Saturday.

The statement did not specify the breach for which Kabir was expelled. However, Chhatra League Kabi Jasimuddin Hall unit President Syed Md Arif Hossain, also vice president of the student front’s central committee, said Kabir had been expelled for demeaning Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in a recent Facebook post.

In the Facebook post on December 1, which has since been removed, Kabir wrote: “If Mamunul (Hefazat-e-Islam leader) gives wrong explanation of the Quran regarding sculptures and Allah forbids statues, who can dare to make those halal (legitimate)?

“Muslim devotees will not wait a second to stand against those opposing the Quran; be it Mamunul, Mubij or Jia. No matter even if he or she is loyal to Awami League, BNP, leftist parties or Jamaat-e-Islami,” he added.

“Ralimuddis, Salimuddis, and Kalimuddis (so called Islamic preachers) don’t represent Islam; rather Allah’s messenger (PBUH) does. Acquiring knowledge from Quran and Hadith is a must to understand Islam. Imaginary logics don’t work here,” he further said in the post.

Recently, Mamunul Haque, joint secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh, and Faizul Karim, nayeb-e-ameer of Islami Andolan Bangladesh, opposed the installation of a sculpture of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

In a program, Mamunul threatened to throw Bangabandhu's sculpture into the Buriganga River. He was later backed by several other Islamist leaders, including Faizul, but many members of the public believe the Hefazat-e-Islam leader’s stance is derogatory to the Father of the Nation.
