Legal notice against Sultana Kamal
A Supreme Court lawyer on Sunday served a legal notice on the authorities concerned demanding arrest of human rights activist Sultana Kamal for allegedly hurting the religious sentiment of people.
Advocate SM Zulfikar Ali Zunu yesterday sent the notice to the Home Secretary, Inspector General of Police and Chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC).
The notice demands that Sultana Kamal should not be arrested within seven days or action be taken against her as per the provision of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPc).
Being an eminent citizen in the country, she allegedly made an irresponsible and derogatory comment about mosque during a private TV talk show. She allegedly said, "If any statue cannot be kept in the country, then there should be no mosque."
At the talk show in question, in response to Hefazat leader Mufti Shakawat Hossain's statement that no statute should be on the Supreme Court premises, Sultana Kamal said,Â "Then no mosque should be on the premises either."
