bdnews24.com :
Police have barred a rally of the Islami Andolan Bangladesh protesting the persecution of Rohingyas in Myanmar, on grounds that it blocked traffic on some roads in Dhaka.
The Islamist political organisation took out the
rally around 11am on Wednesday from the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque located at the heart of the capital city. The rally was proceeding to the Myanmar Embassy in Baridhara to lay siege to it but changed its course and returned to the starting point in face of resistance from police at Shantinagar.  Police put up barricades at the Shantinagar intersection to stop thousands of activists, said Shahbagh Police Inspector Abul Bashar.
The leaders and activists waited there for some time and then headed back to Baitul Mukarram, he said.
"We did not allow this massive crowd to keep walking on such a long route."
