A Hindu man in Moulvibazar filed a general diary (GD) with police over a fake Facebook account spreading posts defaming Islam.

He filed the GD with Sreemangal police station on Friday.

On Thursday night, a fake account in the Hindu man's name posted several statuses on Facebook groups defaming Islam. 

Multiple people also received texts from the account through the social networking site's messenger.

In the GD, the Hindu man reported that the account was created using his name to destroy the communal harmony of his area. 

His father said: 'We respect all religions equally. We know nothing about this fake account or who created it.” 

He further mentioned that they were in police custody until Sunday evening for safety reasons

Sreemangal police station Officer-in-Charge said they have been on alert since the incident was reported. “We are trying to find the person who created the fake account in order to avoid any untoward incidents.”

Meanwhile, Sreemangal Sadar Union Chairman Dudhu Mia urged local members and Muslims to stand beside the Hindu community to keep the incident from destroying the communal harmony of the area.

He further said: “We demand the administration to find the real culprits and ensure exemplary punishment”

Meanwhile, residents of the area have taken their own initiative to ensure the incident does not spark any violence.
