The High Court has ruled this phrase disrespects all freedom fighters

The High Court has barred using the term "fake" before the phrase "freedom fighter."

The bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and KM Kamrul Kader passed the order on Tuesday, after hearing a petition on issuing freedom fighter certificates. 

At the hearing, the court said it would summon anyone who uses the word "fake" before the phrase "freedom fighter." 

"If it can be proven that a person has obtained a fake freedom fighter certificate," the bench said: "That person will be persecuted. However, no one can use the phrase 'fake freedom fighter.'"

Using the phrase fake freedom fighter would show disrespect towards all freedom fighters, the court said. 

Deputy Attorney General ABM Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar represented the state.
