A case has been filed under the Digital Security Act against Sanmilito Islami Jote (Combined Islamic Alliance) president Hafez Moulana Ziaul Hasan by a journalist allegedly for misinterpreting the religion of Islam.
The case was filed on Wednesday by journalist Arifur Rahman at the court of judge Ash Shams Jaglul Hossain of the Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal.
The bench assistant of the tribunal Shamim confirmed it
He said the judge ordered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police to submit a report probing the allegation after the complainant submitted his statement to the tribunal.
The case statement reveals that taking part in a talk-show of 'Agami News 24 channel, Hafez Moulana Ziaul Hasan said: "Our 'Kaaba Sharif,' which is also known as 'Baitullah Sharif' is nothing but a statue. We pay respect there. Then we throw stones at devil, but the devil doesn't exist there. We express our hatred there."
Such remarks of the accused were nothing but a fabricated explanation about the state religion of Islam. He intended to destroy the religious harmony by making such an explanation and creating false stories about Islam, the complainant said.
