Bangladesh’s intelligence agencies are monitoring Facebook, Twitter, cyber games, WhatsApp and other social media very closely to get a tight grip on all sorts of internet-based militant activities, says Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal.

“The social media is now under close surveillance to root out militancy and its activities,” he told reporters on Monday after a meeting of the National Committee on Militancy Resistance and Prevention at his ministry in Dhaka, reports BSS.

Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoque, Border Guard Bangladesh Director General Maj Gen Abul Hossain, Rapid Action Battalion Director General Benazir Ahmed, Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia, representatives from Bangladesh Bank, Islamic Foundation and other security and intelligence forces, among others, had attended the meeting.

The minister said the law enforcement agencies were asked to remain alert to control militancy and its network while taking preventative measures in coordination with the intelligence agencies.

“Bangladesh Bank’s intelligence unit and other security agencies have been working to find out the financial sources of the militants. Bangladesh Bank will submit a report on this within the next two months,” he said.

Asaduzzaman said the intelligence agencies would also submit their findings on the same matter in the next meeting.

Regarding the cases filed against the militants, the minister said they also discussed ways to dispose of these cases as soon as possible.

“Our government is also working to stop drug smuggling to protect our younger generations from addiction,” he said responding to a query.
