The road march comprising about 200 motor vehicles was part of the party’s programmes announced earlier. The march was inaugurated by presidium members of Islami Andolan, Principal Moulana Mosaddeq Billah Al-Madani.Leaders of Islami Andolan said a stronger movement including hartal would follow if their demand for enactment of law prescribing maximum punishment for those committing blasphemy was ignored.

Moulana Mosaddeq Billah Al-Madani said there were laws against blasphemy in many Muslim as well as non-Muslim countries of the world. He said that the Bangladesh Constitution provides for punishment for utterances against individuals.
