Islami Andolan Bangladesh on Thursday organised a rally in the capital protesting protesting the offensive remarks by suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Prophet Muhammad.
The rally, led by Islami Andolan Bangladesh chief Charmonai Pir Mufti Syed Muhammad Rezaul Karim, started at the north gate of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque.
At the end of the rally, a march to the Indian High Commission in Dhaka started at 12pm to submit a memorandum.
Police blocked the Islami Andolan Bangladesh-led protest march towards the Indian High Commission in Dhaka when it reached the capital's Shantinagar area.
Later, a five-member delegation of the organisation left to hand over a memorandum to the Indian High Commission.
The representative team of Islami Andolan went to the DMP's Gulshan DC's office and gave the memorandum. The police then handed it over to the Indian High Commission, Gulshan division DC Md Asaduzzaman told The Business Standard.
Vehicle movement had been stalled in the Baitul Mukarram area as the protesters started gathering in the morning - creating traffic congestion in the adjacent areas.
India has landed in a tight spot following the growing anger in the Islamic world over controversial comments made by two senior officials of the country's ruling party about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The list of nations objecting to remarks against Prophet Mohammed and his wife - by former BJP spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal - grew longer since 7 June as Iran, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan officially protested.
Oman, Libya, Maldives, Indonesia, the UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Malaysia and Afghanistan also joined the list.
The remark of Hindu nationalist BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma made during a televised debate last month sparked a row and drew a massive backlash from Gulf countries. The issue was later shared on social media by Naveen Jindal, who was the media head of the party's Delhi unit.
Protest rallies were held across Bangladesh on 10 June, protesting the derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad.
The protest rallies were held under the banner of various political, social and Islami organisations after Friday prayers.
Protests were reported from almost all mosques in Dhaka on Friday. Protests were also reported at mosques in Dhaka's Savar upazila, Gazipur, Cumilla, Sylhet, Rangpur, Rajshahi, Khulna, and Barishal.
