A Dhaka court has once again deferred the submission date of the investigation report in a defamation case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia. Previously, the submission date was set for April 17. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sayeed fixed the new date on May 20 as Shahbagh police failed to submit the report, said bench assistant Touhidul Islam. On January 25, 2017, Jananetri Parishad President AB Siddique filed the lawsuit with the magistrate’s court against Khaleda Zia for alleged derogatory comments against Awami League and its founder Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. According to the case details, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, at a program in 2016 marking the founding anniversary of the party’s student wing Bangladesh Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, said: “Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman did not want independence. He only wanted to be the prime minister of Pakistan.” She also said: “The people of the country waged the Liberation War as Gen Ziaur Rahman (BNP founder) proclaimed independence.” Khaleda said that the Awami League-led government was looting the country in the name of development.
