Prof Rohan Gunaratna, head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, who is now in Dhaka to attend a conference of chiefs of police of South Asia and neighbouring countries, presented the keynote paper on Sunday.
The expert rejected the government’s position that the recent terror attacks, including the Gulshan Holey Artisan Bakery attack on July 1 last year, were carried out by banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).
“The Holey Artisan attack was mounted by Islamic State (IS), influenced by the terrorist group in Iraq and Syria,” the professor said.
