Judge of the Senior Judicial Magistrate's Court Solaiman Kabir issued the warrant
An arrest warrant was issued against Barrister Mainul Hosein in Jamalpur court on Sunday in a case filed over for hurling abusive words at journalist Masuda Bhatti in a television talk show.
Judge of the Senior Judicial Magistrate's Court Solaiman Kabir issued the warrant after Convener of Jamalpur Jubo Mohila League Farzana Yasmin Lita filed the Tk20, 000-crore defamation case against him for hurling abusive words at the journalist.
Barrister Mainul Hosein’s behaviour towards journalist Masuda Bhatti was very much offensive, distasteful and dishonouring for the women.
Condemning Mainul’s remarks, Farzana demanded Tk20,000-crore, said court sources.
Mainul’s remarks have triggered a firestorm of anger and criticism on the internet since Tuesday night when he called journalist Masuda Bhatti a ‘debauchee’ in Ekattor Journal, a talk show aired live on Ekattor TV.
There has been an outpouring of anger on the social media about Mainul, one of the sponsors of the Dr Kamal Hossain-led new alliance with the BNP.
