Madrasa principal Faijul Amin Sarkar, who at a doa mahfil in Tangail sought heaven for Bangabandhu's killers, was sent to jail yesterday.
Abdul Kadir Talukder, former commander of Gopalpur Muktijoddha Sangsad, filed a case against the principal with Gopalpur Police Station under Special Powers Act, 1974 on Saturday night, said Hasan Al Mamun, officer-in-charge of the police station.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Golam Kibria sent Faijul to jail after police produced him before a Tangail court in the morning, Court Inspector Anwarul Islam said.
Gopalpur upazila administration organised the doa mahfil at Muktijoddha Sangsad office to mark the Victory Day. People were supposed to place wreaths at the mural of Bangabandhu at the office after prayers.
There was a commotion after Faijul, while conducting the doa, said, “May Allah grant heaven for those who were hanged for killing Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1975.”
Political leaders took the situation under control and police detained Faijul on the spot.
Meanwhile in Manikganj, Bangabandhu's killer Col Aziz Pasha's brother Alamgir Pasha's home in Ghior upazila was vandalised around 6:00 pm on Saturday.
Alamgir, a retired school teacher, said he was listening to radio on the first floor his two storey building when some 30-40 motorcycles entered the premises and the bikers threw bricks at the building, destroyed furniture and set a heap of straw on fire.
The bikers left by the time neighbours arrived and doused the fire.
Rabiul Islam, officer-in-charge of Ghior Police Station, said a police team was sent to the scene.
