"TheHefazat-e-Islam central and metropolitan committee have been dissolved considering the present unstable situation. Later following the suggestion of the advisor committee, the three-member convening committee has been announced," said Nasir Uddin Mamun.
"This committee will soon announce the full convening of Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh," he added.
Hefazat-e-Islam Ameer Junayed Babunagari dissolved its central committee on Sunday night through a video in Facebook.
