The authorities of the Hifazat-e Islam chief Shah Ahmed Shafi-run madrasa in Chittagong's Hathazari have seized and destroyed hundreds of mobile phones.
Mufti Jasim Uddin, the superintendent of Al-Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Moinul Islam, known as Hathazari Barha Madrasa, told bdnews24.com on Monday the resident students are not allowed to use mobile phones.
