Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said nobody would be spared after making derogatory comments on Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (SM).

The premier said it is not acceptable to hurt the religious sentiment of any religion as the government wants the people of all religions to live together in the country. 

Sheikh Hasina said this while addressing a 34-member delegation of Bangladesh Awami Juba League at Ganobhaban here on Sunday ahead of the Juba League council.

She reminded the countrymen saying that Bangladesh is a secular country and all the people irrespective of religions fought for the country’s independence during the Liberation War in 1971.

Hasina urged the people to show patience and not to pay heed to rumours to avert any further untoward incident over the Bhola issue.

The premier assured the countrymen to take action against the people responsible for undermining Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (SM) using a Facebook ID of a Hindu person.

She said police have already arrested the Hindu man who filed a general diary (GD) over giving a post undermining Hazrat Mohammad (SM) by using his Facebook ID.

She assured that other people involved in the incident will also be arrested. 

The PM uttered a tone of warning saying that the person who wanted to fish in the troubled water centering the incident will also be captured.

The government contacted with the Facebook authority in this regard and more information will be available soon, she said.

Pointing to the Bhola incident, she said a vested quarter always tries to create unstable situation in the country when it is progressing ahead.

The premier called upon all the media outlets not to cover all the things in such a way which leads to an unstable situation.

The premier expressed her dismay that how a muslim gave such a post undermining Hazrat Mohammad (SM) using a Facebook ID of a Hindu man.

She, however, questioned about the motive behind the incident, elaborating why people were assembled there and attacked policemen while they tried to pacify them and assured them to punish the person responsible for undermining the prophet.
