The bench of Justices FRM Nazmul Ahsan and KM Kamrul Kader passed the order after hearing a writ petition in this regard on Tuesday

The High Court has issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain why the failure of the birth registration program in four municipalities and 71 union parishads in Cox's Bazar should not be declared illegal.

The bench of Justices FRM Nazmul Ahsan and KM Kamrul Kader passed the order after hearing a writ petition in this regard on Tuesday.

The High Court also asked to explain why it will not direct the authorities concerned to take necessary measures to restart the birth registration process in concerned areas.

Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives, Bangladesh Election Commission, Office of the Registrar General, Birth & Death Registration, district commissioner and divisional commissioner of Chittagong were made the respondents of this writ.

They have four weeks to respond to the High Court's rule. 

Advocate Nasrin Siddiqua stood for the writ petition while Deputy Attorney General ABM Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar represented the state. 

Advocate Nasrin Siddiqua filed the writ with the High Court on October 14. 

According to media reports, the birth registration program for newborn babies in the concerned areas in Chittagong was put on hold on August 25, 2017, when the Rohingya influx began.
