Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh, a popular organization in the country, has been shaken by mistrust, conflict and various crises. Allama Shafi’s followers allege that the current leadership of Hefazat-e-Islam has deviated from the norm. They are giving more importance to the implementation of the political agenda than the organization. On the other hand, the current leadership also thinks that the followers of Allama Ahmad Shafi have also been targeted. Maulana Anas Madani, son of Allama Shafi and former publicity secretary of Hifazat-e-Islam, said that after the death of Allama Shafi, Hifazat-e-Islam has deviated from the norm. The leaders of this organization are now busy implementing the agenda of BNP-Jamaat.
Maulana Mainuddin Ruhi, former joint secretary general of Hifazat-e-Islam, said, “The leaders of the current committee of Hifazat-e-Islam are without ideals and aimless. The leaders of the present committee are not following anyone’s leadership. Instead, they are busy implementing the political agenda. Due to lack of leadership and ideology, unpleasant incidents took place on March 25. They misunderstood and shot the students of the madrasa. I demand to investigate who caused the unpleasant incidents in different parts of the country. ‘
Hefazat-e-Islam’s organizing secretary Maulana Azizul Haque Islamabadi has denied the allegations of Allama Shafi’s followers. He said, “Hefazat-e-Islam is still adhering to the ideology with which it was started. On the contrary, those who are trying to challenge the current leadership of Hifazat-e-Islam have deviated from the norm. ‘ In view of this, the followers of Allama Junaid Babungari removed from the committee some influential leaders known as Allama Ahmad Shafi followers of the latest council. After that the two sides went to the field to defeat each other. Conflicts between the two groups have escalated over the recent visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh. Shafi’s followers claim that the current leadership of Hefazat-e-Islam is emphasizing the implementation of the political agenda. They have confronted the administration of Hefazat-e-Islam activists and Madrasa students to implement the BNP-Jamaat agenda. On the other hand, the followers of Babungari are questioning the role of Allama Shafi’s followers as they did not give moral support to the movement.
