Dhaka, April 8 (SocialNews.XYZ) Rafiqul Islam Madani, a preacher of the Hefazat-e-Islam militant outfit in Bangladesh, has been arrested on charges of anti-state speech and inciting chaos.


The 28-year-old Madani, also known as 'Shishu Bokta' or child preacher, was arrested on Wednesday night by a team of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), the elite force of Bangladesh Police, from his ancestral home in Netrokona's Purbatola area.

A case has been filed against the preacher under the Digital Security Act for allegedly making anti-state, provocative and arrogant remarks and creating chaos.
