Fearing more attacks, the convener of Gonojagoron Mancha in Panchbibi upazila of Joypurhat could not yet return home though 10 days have passed since Jamaat-Shibir men attacked his house.
Around 200-300 Jamaat-Shibir activists set fire to his house around 9:30am on March 3, chanting slogans against him, said Sumon Chowdhury, the convener.
“I cannot stay at my house after the attack. Along with my wife and children, I am now living with my in-laws,” he told The Daily Star yesterday.
Jamaat-Shibir activists and other religious fanatics vandalised several establishments in the area, including Panchbibi Police Station.
Sumon has filed a case against 200-300 unknown attackers led by Jamaat-Shibir men.
Jamaat-Shibir men unleashed terror across the country over the February 28 death sentence to their leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee on war crimes charges.
