After seizing around five hundred mobile phones from students, the authorities of Hathazari madrasa burned them on Sunday night. The seized mobile phone sets were put into two sacks which were doused with petrol and set on fire.
Senior teacher of Hathazari Madrasa Mufti Jasim Uddin told Dhaka Tribune that students were asked not to use mobile phones containing videos of song and dance.
