Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir yesterday said the government had taken all out efforts to resist Jamaat-e-Islami and its youth wing Islami Chhatra Shibir.
He said police had so far arrested some 2,500 “criminals” and cases had been filed against 350 Jamaat-Shibir men under the Speedy Trial Act.
"We hope, after the completion of the trial, the troublemakers will stop,” Alamgir told journalists after visiting Ansar and VDP Academy in Gazipur. He also alleged that the fundamentalists, including Jamaat and Shibir, were involved in the Ramu violence.
Welcoming US President Barack Obama's speech on Rohingya, the home minister said, "We have to admit that Rohingyas are the citizens of Myanmar and they should hence be called as Myanmarese Rohingyas.”
