>Islamists’ clashes with cops: no govt plan to catch masterminds

>THE government has no plan to go for the masterminds of recent violence in the name of protesting “anti-Islam” elements in the women development policy but is going to take stern action against the violators of the state of emergency. (Click for full article)
The street demonstrations and violence by Islamist bigots have “embarrassed” the government. But it does not want to take a hardline stance and arrest the masterminds “since it’s a sensitive issue” involving religion and the national mosque, said a high level source in the government today.
While the government is in a dilemma, Mufti Mohammad Nuruddin, acting Khatib of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, categorically told The Daily Star today the long-standing tendency of doing politics centring the mosque should stop immediately.
“I think it would be the best solution if the government demarcates mosque as a protected area, barring any kind of political activities. Only thus the sanctity of the mosque can be ensured,” he said, expressing his intention to place a proposal to the government in this regard.
The situation has already created resentment even among the law enforcement agencies as the fanatics attacked the law enforcers in Dhaka and vandalised a police station in Chittagong without any instigation, according to several sources.
Police sources said officials of different ranks have already conveyed this feeling to their superiors.
Meanwhile, Islamist organisations have pinned the blame on the police for attacking them and are planning tough programmes to force the government scrap the women development policy and remove Women and Children Affairs Adviser Rasheda K Choudhury.
“We know who are behind designing all these. But at the moment, we don’t want to go after them as that might aggravate the situation further,” a high-level official said who cannot be identified.
But those who actively took part in the Thursday and Friday’s violence in Dhaka and Chittagong are going to face strong action, affirmed the official.
Using different names, activists of around two dozens of Islamist organisations including Jamaat-e-Islami, Islami Oikya Jote, Hizbut Tahrir, Khelafat Majlish and Islami Shashantantra Andolon took part in the post-Juma violence at the national mosque on Friday.
