Several people were injured after hardline Islamic activists calling for the enactment of an anti-blasphemy law clashed with Bangladesh police. The Bangladeshi government has rejected the demand, saying the country is governed by secular liberal laws. Hefajat-e-Islam, a newly formed group, organised the protest. “The main aim of this protest is to press for the implementation of the 13-point demand by Hefajat-e-Islam as per the direction of the Quran,” said Hefejat activist Hossain Soliman Abdullah. The protesters also rallied against bloggers who support secularism, and demanded capital punishment for them.
