HC seeks explanation over legality of freedom fighters’ age limit
The High Court on Tuesday asked the government to explain why its decision to impose an age limit of freedom fighters should not be illegal. Earlier on November 10, the government issued a gazette stating that the minimum age of freedom fighters should be above 13 years on March 26, 1971. A High Court bench comprising Justice Rezaul Haque and Justice Mohammed Ullah issued the ruling as Khandakar Shahidul Islam, a freedom fighter brought the matter to the court's notice.

The name of Khandker Shahidul Islam was eliminated from the list of freedom fighters the after government's recent decision though his name was there in two other lists of freedom fighters prepared earlier. Shahidul Islam received a letter by the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs in this regard. The High Court also stayed the letter for six months and ordered the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs to respond to the ruling.
