HC for including Bangabandhu’s anti-corruption speech in syllabus

The High Court has issued a rule to know why Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s anti-corruption speeches won’t be ordered to include in the syllabuses of educational institutions and training centres.

A high court division bench comprising Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Mohammad Shawkat Ali Chowdhury willingly issued the rule today.

Simultaneously, education ministry, director-general of archives and public library department have been asked to submit the speeches (including audio-video) of Bangabandhu to court within a month.

Defendants including cabinet secretary, education secretary, director-general of Department of Archives and Library have been asked to respond to the rule.

At the same time, Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) lawyer Md Khurshid Alam Khan and Rajuk’s lawyer Imam Hasan appeared in the court.

The court has set June 4 for next order.

The High court asked the ACC chairman to ensure that the investigating officers should keep the spirit of Bangabandhu’s anti-corruption speeches in mind during investigation, Deputy Attorney General told newsmen.
