Dhaka, May 4: Hefazat-e-Islam launched a violent movement in the wake of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit in March, but with different motives. The organisation planned a month-long movement. Their plan was to occupy Dhaka during Ramadan by organising sporadic movements in different parts of the country. This information has come to light during the interrogation of top Hefazat leaders who were arrested after the recent violent movement of the organisation. Multiple law enforcement sources have confirmed this information.

According to sources, the organisation chose Brahmanbaria as an experimental part of this big movement. After the violent movement there, Hefazat-e-Islam became extremely active organisationally.

Focusing on the success of the violent movement in Brahmanbaria, they began preparations for the capture of Dhaka. The arrested leaders of the apolitical organization had planned to stay at the center of the country's politics by overthrowing the government through this movement.

Hefazat-e-Islam did not join the movement for the sole purpose of blocking Modi's visit, according to a number of law enforcement officials who were present during the interrogation of the arrested former top leaders of the organisation. After the issue of construction of sculpture of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the top leaders of the organisation met in several secret meetings. In these meetings, they unanimously decided to launch a violent movement to overthrow the government. And the organisation chose the month of Ramadan as the time of this movement.

It is also learned that the leaders of the organisation decided that since the historic battle of Badr took place in the month of Ramadan, the government should be overthrown by a violent movement to blockade Dhaka during this month. And BNP and Jamaat-e-Islam were supposed to be their allies in this movement.

It is learned that after the decision of the movement for the month of Ramadan was taken, the former joint secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam Mamunul Haque and other top leaders took to the field to mobilize the grassroots leaders and activists. As part of this, they have been giving speeches at Waz mahfils in different parts of the country that the country will not be led by women. The state will be run through scholars. As part of this movement, the organisation launched a violent movement targeting the visit of the Prime Minister of India.

Seeing the success of the violent movement in Brahmanbaria as part of this movement, the top leaders of the organization planned a month-long movement. Through which they gradually started a movement in different parts of the country and laid siege to Dhaka and adopted a plan to overthrow the government.
