The surrender of JMB's top leader Shaekh Abdur Rahman has created a scope of brisk business by a section of people.
They have brought out a pamphlet on the mysterious life and background of the person behind the latest spate of militancy that sent shockwave across the country.
The Jama'atul Mujahedin Bangladesh (JMB) chief surrendered to the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Sylhet Thursday morning.
"Shaekh is now the most discussed person in the country," the compiler of the pamphlet told this correspondent Saturday.
He said the 16-page pamphlet titled 'RAB-er fande dhara khaiya kande' (caught in the RAB's trap) was doing a brisk business on the very first day.
"We have printed 80,000 copies and almost 50 per cent of them have been sold like a hot cake," the trader said.
Each copy was being sold at Tk five at different places in the city.
The pamphlet is available at Gulistan, Paltan, Farmgate, Malibagh and such other busy areas.
A small rickshaw van with a loudhailer has been engaged at different points in the city to do the businesses. Similar booklets were also published in the past on the real-life drama surrounding the lives of Ershad Shikder, Saddam Hossain and Munir, a doctor, etc.
"I have so far sold 1,000 copies in the area stretching from Mouchak to Rampura," trader Mohammad Selim said.
Market operators said such hoopla is nothing new in Bangladesh as similar incidents were witnessed in the past when crime don Ershad Shikder and Munir, killer of a journalist's daughter Sharmeen Reema were hanged in 2004 and 1992 respectively.
War against Kuwait in early 1991 by former Iraqi president Saddam Hossain and his resistance against US army in early 2003 also created similar craze in the country.
