Awami League President Sheikh Hasina has not made any comment on this issue
The ruling Awami League has no plan to remove the state religion provision from the constitution, inserted by military dictator HM Ershad in 1988, an organizing secretary says.
Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Sopon, also a whip in parliament, made the remark at a party program at Sandip, Chittagong on Thursday amid the heating discussion after remarks from a state minister of the government.
Sopon said, after forming the government, the Awami League-led grand alliance government made some changes to the constitution through the 15th Amendment in 2011.
“I think there is no need to make any further changes to the constitution now,” he added.
Earlier, when the communal attack spread out in Comilla and several districts during the Durga Puja, State Minister of Information Dr Murad Hassan raised the issue to re-establishing the constitution of 1972 omitting the provision of state religion.
His remarks got huge attention countrywide and criticized by many.
