Some Bangladeshis have left the country to join the Taliban in Afghanistan in the war. Taking stock of the security measures on the eve of the martyrdom day of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md. Shafiqul Islam told media in Dhaka on Saturday that some Bangladeshis responded to the call of the Taliban to join them in their war in Afghanistan and left the country. He said that the hardline Islamist groups have been using digital media to recruit people for their war in Afghanistan. The DMP chief said that some of them may be trying to reach Afghanistan on foot.
He said Bangladesh police forces are keeping strict vigil so that no untoward incident happens on the occasion of the martyrdom day of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. All intelligence agencies in Bangladesh are on alert and vulnerable areas have been kept under CCTV observation.
