A legal notice has been sent to Jatiya Party leader Mashiur Rahman Ranga for his comment on Noor Hossain, who was killed during a protest against military dictator HM Ershad.

Supreme Court lawyer ZI Khan Panna sent the notice on Monday.

The notice said: “The recent comment made by Jatiya Party leader Mashiur Rahman Ranga about martyr of the 1990 mass uprising is demeaning for the nation; therefore, the person who made such a disparaging statement will have to apologize within the next 24 hours; otherwise legal action will be taken against him.”

Earlier on Sunday, Ranga claimed that Shaheed Noor Hossain was addicted to drugs like yaba and phensedyl at a discussion organized by his party marking "Democracy Day."

Ranga's controversial comments over Shaheed Noor triggered mass criticism in the political arena of the country and social media platforms including Facebook.

Later on Monday, Noor’s mother Morium Bibi said she will take legal action against Ranga for his ill remarks about her son.
