Iqbal Hossain, key suspect in anti-Hindu violence, taken to Cumilla

Iqbal Hossain, key suspect in anti-Hindu violence, taken to Cumilla



Iqbal Hossain, who was arrested from Cox's Bazar for allegedly placing a copy of the Quran at a Durga Puja venue which triggered a series of deadly attacks on Hindus across the country, has been taken to Cumilla.

He was identified as the same man seen in the CCTV video footage of the incident in Cumilla, said the district's Superintendent of Police Faruque Ahmed, reports bdnews24.com.
Iqbal was arrested at Cox’s Bazar sea beach about 10 pm on Thursday, said Rafiqul Islam, additional superintendent of police of the district.

Police officials in Cumilla said Iqbal, 35, son of Noor Mohammad Alam of Khanqah Mazar neighbourhood in the city’s Sujanagar, had worked as a painter.

Informed of the matter, a team of detective police led by Additional SP Sohan Sarkar went to Cox's Bazar and brought Iqbal to Cumilla at 12 pm. He was initially taken to the Police Lines for interrogation, but is likely to be shifted to the police superintendent's office.

Police have confirmed from the security camera footage that the arrestee is the man who “placed the copy of the Quran” at the puja venue in the city’s Nanua Dighir Par in the wee hours of Oct 13, said SP Faruque Ahmed.

Several temples and puja venues in the city came under attack in the afternoon as tension mounted after a video of placing a book at the Durga Puja venue went viral. Many shared the video calling for attacks on Hindu sites alleging sacrilege.

Police said seven people died as communal violence spread to other parts of Bangladesh. The law enforcers have arrested 450 people in 72 cases over the attacks and clashes.

Rana Dashgupta, general secretary of Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council, questioned the description of Iqbal as a “vagabond” by some media outlets that cited sources.

“How did a vagabond recognise the Holy Quran? How did he get a new book? Who gave it to him? And he removed Hanuman’s Gada carefully without damaging the hand before placing the Holy Quran there. It can’t be a vagabond’s work.

“Conspirators are behind the incident. It is the responsibility of the state and the government to find them out.”

You should also add chatra league helped his arrest after he told them about his involvement.

Should I add more?

“How did a vagabond recognise the Holy Quran? How did he get a new book? Who gave it to him?
Vagabond is a person who wanders from place to place aimlessly without a home or job. Some of them usually don't work, while others do work small jobs which in this guy's case is he's a painter. Some keep travelling all the time, while others stick to a place for sometime, make some money and move on wandering. As a sigma male, I like this lifestyle but I don't practice it. Anyways...

Now, how did he recognise the Quran? Well, any Muslim can recognise it.

How did he get a new book or who gave it to him? Well, every mosque has a lot copies of Quran for free reading. Some people do take them at home. They are all donated by Muslims. And anyone can enter mosque.

Now, whether he's the actual(and/or only) culprit or not, that's for Police to find out. I have no comments in that case.

Actually, such video photographs, if taken from many angles, maybe a good proof. Otherwise, Police will have to get his confession or circumstantial evidence to prove him guilty in Court.

However, if he is really insane and cannot prove he had no role, he must not then be scapegoated by the police as the real culprit so as to make the Hindu population happy. Our Police force is without humanity and opts for bullying to prove someone guilty.

I think reality will come out with proper investigations.

The issue is the way it is described that person has done it casually.

If someone really had to do it to create a communal violence or riot they would not do it openly specially the way it’s shown and wander around in an empty street with the goda for showing it.

Specially when the puja mandap did not have any security guard or cc camera why someone will leave behind so many clues?

It’s evident it’s a cover up story.

With increased international condemnation, they had to come up with something. This does not change how the minority community is feeling right now after the barbaric act.

As you spread hindutva poison across India you had to expect the neighborhood would be affected and respond

If the allegation is found to be true, he should be made an example for everyone to see.

They're learning from their big brother who has decades of experience in genociding minorities starting from operation polo to ethnic cleansing in Kashmir then blue star and Gujarat and many more. Unfortunately when indian show concern for minorities it's always for minorities in other countries and almost never for their own unfortunate countrymen.

That's the problem with Jihadi mentality right? Did you even bother understanding if I will, or if majority in India condemn acts that happen in India? Or is that futile? since you already display enough bias and hate? I see you as a threat to Hindus around you. You are no different than the Bangladeshis involved in this barbaric act.

Talk about sick mindsets if you have to learn from the bad in India. India does a lot of good things also, what did you learn from it?

Your making excuses

You spread hindutva poison across India and didn't think it would push Kashmiri, Indian Muslims and regional countries to hate you and see you as a threat



This one dude can be prosecuted but the underlying reality that so many in Bangladesh viewed the hindus with such mistrust that they immediately went in for the kill


Hindutva poison will cause a backlash and reaction
