Jamaat defers Monday’s hartal to Thursday

Posted on Updated on

Jamaat defers Monday's hartal to ThursdayJamaat-e-Islami has deferred its Monday’s countrywide dawn-to-dusk hartal to Thursday citing reasons of second phase of Biswa Ijtema and Saraswati Puja.

The Ijtema will end Sunday while the puja will be celebrated on Tuesday.

In a statement this evening, Jamaat acting secretary general Shafiqur Rahman said they would enforce the shutdown on Thursday instead of Monday so that the devotees joining the Ijtema can smoothly return to their destinations and the Hindu community can observe the puja.

It, however, will stage ‘peaceful’ demonstrations across the country on Monday protesting what the party said the government’s design to kill its ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami.-http://www.thedailystar.net/jamaat-defers-mondays-hartal-to-thursday-9468
