DHAKA - Muslim Parties in Bangladesh announced massive countrywide protest against Indian PM Narendra Modi visit to Dhaka.

Indian Prime Minister Narendara Modi is scheduled to visit Bangladesh on March 17 to join the state program marking the country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s birth centenary.
Thousands of Islamist political activists are holding rallies and brought out processions in Dhaka protesting against Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to Bangladesh and vowed to resist him in the country.
They blamed Modi for recent killing of Muslims in Indian capital New Delhi for protesting against ‘communal law’ of Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens and termed him ‘a killer of Muslims’.
One of the protests was organised by the Samamana Islami Dalgulo, a combine of like-minded Islamist parties, while the other protest was organised by the Islami Andolan Bangladesh. They staged demonstrations at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque premises and adjacent areas to press home their demands.
According to reports, the Muslim parties have announced a countrywide protest for March 12 and a human chain will be formed. The protesters have been asked to join the rally wearing black shrouds, carrying black flags, and shoes.
The protesters are also planning to cordon off the airport route on March 17.
The large-scale violence in India’s national capital Delhi that left 51 people dead and over 400 injured in Hindu-Muslim clashes has evoked a sharp response from the international community.
