Tahrir men attack TIB drama workshop
Members of banned Islamist outfit Hizb-ut-Tahrir vandalised musical instrument of a drama workshop of Youth Engagement and Support (YES) in Sylhet city on Wednesday night, alleged officials of Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB).
YES is spearheading TIB's anti-corruption social movement by sensitising the young people, nurturing their conscience and providing them with a forum of raising voices against corruption.
Swapon Kumar Datt, assistant manager (finance and administration) of Sylhet TIB, said they arranged a four-day workshop on drama against corruption by renting Shreehatto Sangskriti College auditorium at Mirer Maidan.
The volunteers found their musical instruments broken on Thursday morning and a handwritten letter of Hizb-ut-Tahrir threatening to stop their activities.
UNB adds: Expressing deep concern over the vandalism, TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman, in a statement yesterday, urged the government, especially the Sylhet administration and law-enforcing agencies, to find out the guilty persons and take legal action against the attackers.
