The government will prepare a list of those involved in anti-state activities living abroad and revoke their passports, said Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque.

“Those who’re involved in anti-state activities and making anti-state statements abroad will be listed and their passports will be impounded,” he said while talking to reporters after a meeting at the Bangladesh Secretariat on Wednesday.

The decision was taken at the Cabinet committee meeting on the law-and-order situation held at the conference room of the Home Ministry.

“There are some people who are spreading propaganda abroad—they can do it against any person but when it goes against the state it is sedition. These two are different things. One person can say something against me, but the latter causes damage to the state,” he said.

“We have recommended revoking the passports of those who are spreading propaganda against the state. A decision has been taken to revoke passports of those who have been doing it continuously,” he added.

Directives to take steps in this regard have been given, the minister added.
