Begum Zia can be released only in legal way: Hasan

DHAKA, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today

said legal system is the only way to release BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda

Zia from the prison.

Begum Zia is in prison after being convicted in a graft case and her

release would not be possible through movement as it is the only court that

can release her, he told reporters after attending a function at North South

University Campus (NSU) in city's Bashundhara area.

Dr Hasan, also Awami League publicity and publication secretary, said

BNP always gives threat that they will wage movement, but the countrymen

don't know when they will go for such movement. I want to urge them not to

make those funny talks anymore, he added.

He said Begum Zia has already got bail in some cases. So, there is no

other ways to release her as the court will decide whether she will be

released or not, the minister added.

NSU organized the function for celebrating the ranking success as

Bangladesh's top private university.

Urging students learn how to dream, Hasan said dream is must for a human

being. Otherwise none can move ahead, he said, adding that there will be

needed efforts to make the dream true.

If you don't give efforts then your dream would not become true, he

said. The minister also urged the students to nourish dream not only for

themselves but also for the society as well.

DR Hasan urged the private universities authorities to give more

scholarships to the meritorious students.

Former lawmaker and Chairman of the Board of Trustee of NSU MA Hashem

was present in the function as special guest.
