Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Sunday thanked Dr Kamal Hossain for realizing the mistake that Oikyafront had made by incorporating Jamaat-e-Islami in the recent 11th parliamentary election.

"I would like to thank Dr Kamal Hossain for realizing their political mistake," said the minister while talking to reporters at the Secretariat, reports UNB.

Jatiya Oikyafront chief Dr Kamal Hossain on Saturday said it was his party's mistake to nominate Jamaat-e-Islami men from Jatiya Oikyafront to participate in the recently ended national election.

Dr Hasan Mahmud further said that the Jatiya Oikya front will make another mistake if their elected candidates do not take the oath to join the 11th parliament.

"I hope they will realize it and join the parliament by taking the oath of office," said the minister.

"A party is trying to drag the country backwards. I think no conspiracy against the country will work," he said.

Responding to a question about the recently enacted Digital Security Act, he said the government will work towards assuring  the journalist about the act.

"I always welcome all types of criticism. When I was the environment minister, the Daily Star published several reports criticizing the ministry, even they published cartoons. But, we gave them an environment award. Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (BAPA) was also awarded although they had criticized the ministry," said the minister.

Mentioning that criticism speeds up anyone's journey, the minister said: "However, blind and one-sided criticism is not useful. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has introduced the culture of welcoming any criticism."

"This time, Awami League has pledged that the country's villages will be turned into cities. Coordinated efforts are required to move the country forward. Mass media also plays a vital role in this effort.”

According to UNB, the minister also said that a huge revolution has been made not only in the country's online media but also in print, electronic and social media.

"Around 8 crore people are using social media," he mentioned.
