Muslim clerics submit list of ‘bloggers demeaning Islam’
A group of Muslim clerics on Sunday submitted to the government a list of bloggers who they think are involved in writing derogatory contents about Islam and Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).
The clerics handed over the list to a government-formed committee, tasked with identifying and bringing to book bloggers and online activists who are making derogatory remarks about Islam and Prophet Mohammad.
The government formed the committee on March 13 following a smear campaign provoking religious sentiment.
Earlier, the government asked Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) to set up a monitoring cell for blocking instantly the blogs which carry derogatory contents about Islam and Prophet Mohammad.
