Militant outfit ‘Allahr Dal’ banned

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The government has finally outlawed militant outfit ‘Allahr Dal’ as its activities are deemed to pose a threat to public security in the country. The Public Security Division under the Ministry of Home Affairs announced the ban in an order dated Tuesday. An order of the ministry reads, “It appears to the government that the activities of the militant group/organisation named ‘Allahr Dal’ are against the country’s peace and stability. As the activities of the group/organisation are already considered to have posed a threat to public security, its activities are declared banned.”

Earlier this week, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal had hinted at banning the group, which was formed in 1995 with an announcement to establish Khilafat by destroying the democratic system of the government through an armed struggle. The minister on Sunday said steps would be taken against seven other organisations once the police finish examining information about them.

In Bangladesh, Allahr Dal is the ninth Islamist group to be banned on charge of extremism and militancy. Eight other organisations are Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Jagroto Muslim Janata Bangladesh (JMJB), Harkatul Jihad Al Islami, Bangladesh (HuJI,B), Shahadat-e al-Hikma, Hizb-ut Tahrir, Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) and Ansar Al Islam. Of these, four including JMB were banned in 2005. Members of its revived faction Neo-JMB were blamed for the 2016 terrorist attack on an eatery in Dhaka’s Gulshan.
