The visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh has resulted in series of violent protests across the country .
It is worth mentioning here that Police said four bodies of members of Hefazat-e-Islam, an Islamist group opposed to the visit of Modi, were brought to Chittagong Medical College Hospital after violence erupted at Hathazari, a rural town where the group’s main leaders are based.
On the other hand , the Prime Minister Modi is in Bangladesh to attend its Golden Jubilee celebrations of independence and the birth centenary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the country’s founder and father of current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Meanwhile , the Human rights groups on their part have called for an end to growing authoritarianism, including forced disappearances and extrajudicial killings.
The social media platform Facebook has also been restricted in Bangladesh, a company spokesman said, after users complained they could not access the site since late Friday afternoon as images and reports of the violence were shared on social media.
On his part the Post and telecommunications minister Mustafa Jabbar said his ministry was not responsible for the stoppage.
A Hefazat spokesman said tens of thousands of supporters of the group demonstrated on Friday to protest against Modi’s two-day visit.
The group has also called for nationwide demonstrations on Saturday and a strike on Sunday to protest against the police’s actions and firing on “peaceful” protesters.
The situation in Bangladesh on account of PM Modi visit is quite tense and hot .
