Hats off to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for doing the right thing.

It is heartening to see PM Hasina, president of the AL, take action against the Barisal lawyer who sued UNO Gazi Tarek Salman over publishing a drawing of Bangabandhu on an invitation card.

We are glad to see that the rule of law, as well as common sense, has prevailed.

But more importantly, this action on part of the AL sends out a much-needed message: Over-zealous actions which persecute citizens under such false pretenses will not be tolerated.

The actions of Obaedullah Saju do not honour the memory of the Father of the Nation, but quite the opposite.

Neither the government, the AL, nor the people will fall for such antics.
