Jaglul Huda, Rangunia Correspondent
Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud said that “the biggest violation of human rights in the country is to block the way of
justice after the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. This is the topmost human rights violation in Bangladesh. In the meantime, when Ziaur Rahman was in power, many military officers were hanged without trial. Human rights have been violated at that time, but now those who make various statements about human rights do not speak out.”
He was speaking as the chief guest at the bi-annual conference of the Upazila Human Rights Commission at the Advocate Nuruchfa Talukder Auditorium of Rangunia Municipality in Chattogram on Friday morning. The Minister further said that the government has taken various steps to protect human rights in the country.
“From time to time various organizations from abroad make statements about the protection of human rights in Bangladesh, but they never raise their voices about the extreme human rights violations in the countries where these organizations make statements”, the minister said.
Chairman of the Upazila Human Rights Commission KM Musha presided over the ceremony and General Secretary Master Iskander Mia Talukder and Organizing Secretary SM Abul Fazal co-chaired the discussion. The inaugural speech was given by Upazilla Parishad Chairman Sajon Kumar Talukder.
Aminul Haque, Governor of Chittagong Divisional Human Rights Commission delivered the special remarks. Rangunia Municipality Mayor Shahjahan Sikder and Chattogram District Council Member Kamrul Islam Chowdhury were the special guests.
Among others, UP Chairman Shafiul Alam Shafi, Lawyer Sekander Chowdhury, Rehena Akhter, Master Abdur Rauf, Nirmal Kanti Das, Ranjan Barua, Former Upazila Parishad Vice Chairman Akhtar Hossain, Human Rights Leader Engineer Oli Ahmed, Joint Secretary Rubaiyat Rashedul, Md. Shahidullah were present on the occasion.
