BSS, Dhaka : Issuing a note of warning against fake news portals, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Thursday said legal actions would be taken soon against all fake online news portals. "There were only a few online news portals in 2009. Now, there are so many online portals. But not all of them are helpful in many cases. For this, we started online registration activities and we have a plan to complete the registration process within the
year as far as possible," he said. The information minister said actions would be taken from next year against online new portals that are involved in serving personal interest instead of publishing objective news, in spreading rumours and in creating instability in the society. He was addressing the inaugural function of 'Reporters Journal', an online journal of Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU), and DRU Writer Award 2020 at DRU auditorium in the capital. Al-Arafah Islami Bank Deputy Managing Director Md Shafiqur Rahman and DRU General Secretary Riaz Chowdhury addressed the function as special guests with DRU President Rafiqul Islam Azad in the chair.
