At least four people were killed and 50 injured when Bangladesh police opened fire on Sunday on hundreds of Muslims protesting against an alleged Hindu Facebook site.

Violence erupted in the morning after hundreds of Muslims gathered in the southwestern Bhola district, 116 kilometers from Dhaka, in a protest under the slogan “Muslim Monotheist Janata”, demanding action against the Hindu man for his comments on social media against the Prophet Muhammad.

The Hindu man, who is in preventive police custody, denied the comment, saying his Facebook account had been hacked. After a complaint by him, police arrested three people for allegedly infiltrating a Facebook account.

According to reports, village elders were meeting with local authorities on Sunday to try to defuse tensions that began on Friday after Facebook became the virus. But protesters began to attack security officials, prompting them to retaliate.

“The demonstrators were trying to sabotage the town and attacked the police, forcing us to respond with our pistols in self-defense.

The death toll is expected to rise as some of the injured are reported to be in critical condition.

Several policemen were also injured in the clash in Shar Borodin district of Bhola, the country’s largest rural island, Caesar said.

Paramilitary border guards were also deployed in the area.

Despite demands from militant Islamist groups, Bangladeshi authorities have refused to enforce stricter Islamic laws.
