Aminee goes for 2-month fresh agitation

Fazlul Haque Aminee, chief of the Islamic Law Implementation Committee, yesterday came up with two-month long agitation programmes including organising a grand rally in the capital to protest the 'anti-Quran women development policy'.
He announced the programmes from a post-hartal briefing held at the temporary office of the organisation at Lalbagh of Old Dhaka in the capital. The organisation observed the dawn to dusk hartal yesterday protesting the government's adoption of the women development policy.
On Fatwa, an issue pending in the High Court, Aminee said, “What you people have seen? …Fire will be set on the whole country within an hour if the court verdict goes against Fatwa.”
According to the fresh programmes, protest rallies will be held in all districts under Dhaka division tomorrow and campaign against the anti-Quran provisions in the women development policy on April 8.
A conference of the Ulama Mashayekh will be held in Dhaka on April 20 while grand rallies in all divisional headquarters in between May 10 and 25 and a grand rally will take place in the capital on May 27.
Aminee, also the chairman of a faction of Islami Oikya Jote, said, “Nobody will be able to stay in state power after taking position against Quran and Hadith. Hasina will fall from chair if she does not give up her position against Islam.”
Aminee termed yesterday's hartal most successful since the present government assumed office.
“We are now on the streets and will remain until the Quran and Hadith are protected,” Aminee said adding, “We will not sit idle in madrasa anymore; rather will take to the street.”
He claimed 315 activists were arrested during the hartal and demanded release of them within 24 hours.
