>Govt probing Hizb ut-Tahrir’s militant links for sometime

>INVESTIGATORS are now probing Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh’s suspected involvement or link with militancy at home and abroad following Thursday’s arrest of 10 of its leaders and activists in Rajshahi. (Full Report)
Sources in the law enforcement agencies yesterday said the arrests were not unexpected and that the agencies were looking for Tahrir men after a few of them distributed leaflets at Baro Masjid in Rajshahi around 10 days before the arrests.
Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) Commissioner Mahbub Mohsin yesterday said the arrest of Tahrir leaders on Thursday was not surprising. “We had been looking for the organisation’s leaders and activists for distributing leaflets at Baro Masjid,” he told The Daily Star.
Law enforcement and intelligence agencies suspected Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh as a militant organisation and kept it under watch for quite a long time although it is not officially declared a militant outfit, said a top official of a law enforcement agency in Dhaka.
Meanwhile, The Daily Star yesterday received a fax dated September 18 sent in the name of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) that apparently acknowledged Hizb ut-Tahrir as its ‘front organisation’ and asked the government and all law enforcement agencies to refrain from harassing its leaders and activists.
The message also reiterates Tahrir Chief Coordinator Mahiuddin Ahmed’s demand for releasing the 10 arrested leaders and activists within 48 hours and threatened that otherwise “Bangladesh will be stained with the blood of law enforcers and all the advisers”.
