Dhaka, December 9: A defamation suit has been filed against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and her son, senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman and secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir for allegedly collaborating in anti-sculpture speeches. Hefazat-e-Islam's Amir Junaid Ahmed Babungari, Bangladesh Khilafah Majlis's acting secretary general Muhammad Mamunul Haque and Syed Faizul Karim of Islamic rule have also been charged.

AB Siddiqui, president of Jannetri Parishad, filed the case in the court of Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Sikder on Wednesday (December 9). The court said it would take the plaintiff's statement and issue an order later. The plaintiff in the case is AB Siddiqui.

According to the case, the joint secretary general of Hifazat-e-Islam said in a speech at a discussion meeting of Hifazat-e-Islam at BMA Bhaban auditorium on Topkhana Road in the capital on November 13 this year that there would be no sculpture in Bangladesh and no sculpture of the father of the nation would be allowed.

Junaid Ahmed Babungari, the current emir of Hifazat-e-Islam, said at Hathazari in Chittagong on November 26 that there would be no sculpture if the country left with the Medina Charter. He threatened the government that if the construction of the sculpture was not stopped, another Shapla Chattar would be built. Speaking at a public meeting on Islamic rule in front of the National Mosque Baitul Mukarram, Faizul Haque said if any sculpture is made in Bangladesh, all the sculptures will be broken and thrown into the Buriganga. If necessary, it will be gathered at Shapla Chattar again.

Earlier, Begum Khaleda Zia had said at a rally of Hifazat-e-Islam at Shapla Chattar that she would bring down Sheikh Hasina by 8 am. You keep working that way. Hefazat-e-Islam militants then set fire to the National Mosque Baitul Mukarram on the orders of Babungari and burnt the Holy Quran. Since independence, these extremist anti-independence activists have continued their misdeeds and are humiliating the country to the world by distorting the father of the nation, the map of the country, the national flag and the history of the liberation war.

In the interest of justice, I am requesting to issue arrest warrants against the accused under sections 500/506/109 and 427 of the Penal Code.
