Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Tuesday said demand of re-election raised by Jatiya Oikya Front is unconstitutional and disrespectful towards the opinion given by people of the country.
“Oikya Front’s demand of re-election is not constitutional at all and very much illogical. People have given their opinion and Oikya Front has no rights whatsoever to disrespect that,” he said.
The minister came up with the opinion while talking to newsmen after attending the farewell ceremony of National Legal Aid Services Organisation (NLASO) Director’s Md Zafrul Hasan at its Bailey Road office.
While replying a question regarding the recent statement made by Hefajat-e-Islam Ameer Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi on women education, Law Minister Anisul
Huq said it is completely his (Shafi) personal opinion.
“He is an elderly person. With due respect, I want to tell him that his comments go against the development being made in Bangladesh. I think it will be better if he withdraws his comment. In spite of this, such comments will not make any change in the state policy or the way of governing the country,” Anisul said.
“We are committed towards establishing women rights and we will further strengthen it,” he added.-BSS
