Hundreds of thousands of Muslims protested contemptuous comments on Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) in Dhaka and other major cities in Bangladesh on 22 February. Their protests turned out violent when the police obstructed them. Massive clash broke out between the police personnel and the protesters. Police opened fire to disperse the protesters, lobbed hundreds of rounds of tear shell and carried massive baton charge. Across the country, two of protesters have been reported dead, one from Jhenaidah and the other from Sylhet. At least 200 have been injured in the clash and more two one hundred have been arrested. Eight journalists are also reported to be injured.

The clash broke out across the country following the Friday prayers.  Hundreds and thousands of Muslims took to the streets, chanted slogans to ensure punishment of the bloggers and maintain Islamic values in the country. Earlier, all Islamic parties in the country condemned the remarks of some bloggers regarding Islam, Allah and Prophet Muhammad and declared to hold protests from all the mosques of Bangladesh.
