“Desecration of holy Quran” in Cumilla, govt urges calm

State Minister for Religious Affairs Md Faridul Haque Khan has urged the people of the country to exercise restraint and not to take law into their own hands over the reported desecration of the holy Quran in Cumilla.

“Don’t take law into your own hands. Everyone should maintain religious harmony and peace,” he said in an emergency announcement on Wednesday evening.

“We’re closely monitoring the situation in Cumilla. The local administration has been instructed to investigate what really happened [there].” he said.

“Anyone involved in destroying religious harmony [in the country] must be brought under the ambit of law and arrangements be made to give proper punishment,” the state minister added.
