Gono Forum has called upon the government to take legal action against Hefazat-e-Islam Ameer, Shah Ahmad Shafi, for his derogatory remarks regarding women’s education.
Gono Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain and General Secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu in a statement issued on Monday condemned the Hefazat chief’s recent remarks.
Citing Ahmed Shafi as a misogynist, against the spirit of independence and the constitution, the party called upon the government to take legal action immediately against the Hefazat Ameer for his statement.
“Ahmed Shafi wants to take the country and society down the path of darkness with his self-made ‘Fatwa’ by misinterpreting religion,” reads the statement.
It also urged citizens of the country to be vocal against the fatwa against women’s education made by Ahmed Shafi.
Islamic hardliner Hefazat-e-Islam chief, Shah Ahmad Shafi, recently made his audience promise to hold girls back from education which sparked widespread controversy, drawing criticism from various quarters.
