The court asked the Bangla Academy director general to immediately withdraw the books from the Ekushey Book Fair stall

The High Court has issued a sue moto order to ban the publication, sale, distribution and marketing of two books for hurting religious and personal sentiments. 

The two books are “Dia Arefin” and "Dia Arefin er Nanir Bani” written by blogger Diarsi Arag and published by Shristhigarh publication. 

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mustafizur Rahman passed the suo moto order on Wednesday after examining the books, while Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Azharullah Bhuiyan took the matter to the court. 

The court asked the Bangla Academy Director General Habibullah Siraji to immediately withdraw the books from the publisher’s stall at the Amar Ekushey Book Fair. 

It also asked the home secretary and deputy commissioners of Dhaka and Narayanganj to take necessary action for implementing the court order.
