HC orders actions over Bangabandhu’s image distortion

DHAKA The High Court (HC) today asked authorities

concerned to take legal action against the vice chancellor (VC) of Jashore

Science and Technology University (JUST) and two others for distorting

photographs of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Prime Minister Sheikh

Hasina in a calendar.

HC division bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader

passed the order today.

The bench also directed the cabinet secretary to take actions within one

month against the university's VC, registrar and public relations officer.

Declaring the incident as illegal, HC ordered the cabinet secretary

should take action within a month following the Constitutions against the

people who are guilty according to the investigation Advocate MK Rahman

told the media.

Earlier, a writ was filed by Jashore upazila vice chairman Md Anwar Hossain

for the distortion of images of Bangabandhu and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

on the calendar of Jashore University of Science and Technology.

Following the High Court order, a committee was formed with an additional

secretary of the ministry of education as the convener.

The committee found that, in the calendar, the VC's name was placed above

the name of Bangabandhu, and pictures of the prime minister and Bangabandhu

were incorrectly as well as inappropriately set up.
