He called upon the people to offer prayers seeking early recovery of his brother, now undergoing treatment at the 'critical care medicine unit' of Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok.
General Shafeyetul Islam, a former Military Secretary of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also criticized a group of people who are engaged in making untrue remarks over the illness. He said the vested quarter is spreading lies, adding that Syed Ashraful Islam would return to politics soon.
