Concern over bigots’ threat on Dr Kamal
Two political parties yesterday expressed their deep concern over the threats issued by Islamic bigots against Dr Kamal Hossain because of his pleads in court against the ban on Ahmadiyya publications.
Bangladesh Samajtantrik Dal central conveynor Khalequzzaman said in a statement that Dr Kamal Hossain performed his democratic responsibility by taking a stance in favour of the Ahmadiyyas. He called for an arrest of the religious extremists acting under the banner of the International Khatme Nobuwat Movement of Bangladesh who threatened Dr Kamal and demanded that he be declared a non-Muslim.
Rashed Khan Menon, president of the Workers Party of Bangladesh, and General Secretary Bimol Biswas said in a joint statement that religious extremists are now able to show their extreme power by threatening a progressive minded person like Dr Kamal Hossain because the BNP-Jamaat government has patronised them.
They called upon all sections of society to resist religious extremism for the nation’s greater interest.
