BNP denied permission for Thursday rally
BNP has been denied permission to hold the rally they had planned for Thursday to demand party chief Khaleda Zia's release from jail. The party sought Dhaka Metropolitan Police's (DMP) permission to hold the rally at either Suhrawardy Udyan, where Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2018 is in progress, or in front of the party central office in Naya Paltan, but the DMP did not grant permission. In protest, the BNP is going to bring out a “black flag” procession in the capital on Saturday, said BNP Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Speaking at a press event at the BNP's Naya Paltan office on Wednesday, Rizvi said: “The home minister said there was no bar on BNP's programs. Then why are they not allowing us to hold the rally?” He said the government is acting undemocratically by denying BNP the permission to hold the rally. Criticizing Dhaka Special Sessions Judge Dr Akhraruzzaman, who delivered the verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case, Rizvi said: “Dr Akhtaruzzaman turned his back on his education and profession. The verdict he delivered proves our remarks regarding his biased position.” The BNP leader further said that in the verdict, the judge had distorted Khaleda Zia's statement during the trial. BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia was sentenced to five years in prison in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case. Her son Tarique Rahman and four others were sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined Tk2.10 crore each. This article was first published on banglatribune.com
