Earlier on June 29, the High Court bench of Justice JBM Hassan imposed the injunction on using the word "commission" by any private rights organization after hearing a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Abu Hanif

The Supreme Court has upheld a High Court order that issued an injunction on the use of the word "commission" after the name of any private rights organization.

Supreme Court's Appellate Division chamber judge Justice Md Nuruzzaman passed "no order" on the petition filed by Saiful Alam Dildar, secretary general of a private organization named "Bangladesh Human Rights Commission", challenging the High Court's injunction order.

Earlier on June 29, the High Court bench of Justice JBM Hassan imposed the injunction on using the word "commission" by any private rights organization after hearing a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Abu Hanif.

The petitioner's lawyer Advocate Mohammad Bakir Uddin Bhuiyan said: “The National Human Rights Commission was established under the National Human Rights Commission Act, 2009. According to the law, no private organization can use the word "commission" after their names, but an NGO titled as Bangladesh Human Rights Commission has been using the word "commission" in its name in violation of provision of the law.”

Advocate Md Ozi Ullah appeared for Saiful Alam Dildar during the virtual hearing on Tuesday.
