Attending a Hindu ceremony in India has proven dangerous for Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. He has been threatened by Islamists in Bangladesh for attending a Hindu ceremony in neighboring country India. The news is confirmed by the Bangladesh Cricket Board itself.
The man who threatened Shakib is arrested!
As per the Bangladesh Cricket Board confirmation that came on Wednesday, Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been threatened by an Islamist for attending a ceremony connected to a Hindu ideology in India.
Islamists in Bangladesh always search for new targets and this time they have got Shakib on the noose. Recently they have seen conducting rallies against France’s prime minister. But I think Shakib’s visit to India has caught their attention.
Shakib shared some of his clips from his tour to India and this brought a storm to the social media which got divided into wishes and critics. A person from a majority Muslim country visited Kolkata in India for a ceremony on the 12th of November in Hindu culture dedicated to one of the Indian Goddess.
Well, the good news is that the accused is arrested for hurting religious sentiments on social media platforms said the Police on Tuesday. Bangladesh Cricket Board’s chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury has a lot to say on this. He told the reporters that the threat is concerning. They have taken quick and firm actions and the relevant agencies have been informed about the threats. He also added that the agencies are also taking action. He didn’t give any further details.
This is also not confirmed that if Shakib will get 24*7 security or not. Though he has been given the bodyguards and they will stay with him for a certain period. It is not new in Bangladesh. Many celebrities have got these threats and no tough action was taken in the past to them. Thus, these so-called Islamists always come with new threats.
Now let’s see how BCB acts on this issue. Even if Shakib has got the bodyguards, the board has to find out the full chain of these ‘Threats-holders’ who just pop out in the name of religion every time.
Every coin has two faces. Many fans have come out openly to support Shakib. This will surely give Shakib some strength. We will also see how ICC intervenes in this as Shakib is a top-class international player.
Even if the threats are common in Bangladesh, everyone is hoping for bold action on the ‘Threats-holders’. What is your opinion on this? Share with us.Stay safe and stunned with us to grab the latest notifications.
