The High Court has granted one year bail to Jhumon Das Apon, who was arrested in a case under the Digital Security Act in Sunamganj over criticising Hefajat-e-Islam leader Mamunul Haque on Facebook.
The virtual High Court bench of Justice Mostafa Zaman Islam and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar Kajal passed the order on Thursday.
On 15 March, Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh arranged a rally named 'Shan-e-Risalat Sammelan' in Sunamganj's Dirai upazila where its former Ameer Junaid Babunagari and joint secretary general Manunul Haque delivered sermons.
Later, Jhumon Das posted a status on Facebook opining that Mamunul Haque's speech was disruptive to communal harmony. Later, miscreants vandalised and looted about 90 Hindu houses at Shalla upazila.
Police detained Jhumon on 16 March to avoid a possible attack on the village, but the attempt went in vain. They showed Jhumon arrested in a case under Digital Security Act.
