Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh chief Junaid Babunagari said this on Friday while speaking at a program in Chattogram's Hathazari.
"All statues will be toppled no matter who they represent. We will tear them down," Babunagari said.
"Many people are being arrested and tortured in Bangladesh for speaking the truth and spreading the message of Islam. But we will not stop telling the truth."
However, the Hefazat-e-Islam chief also said, "Honorable prime minister, we respect you and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. We are not your enemies."
