JU student sued for remarks on prime minister

  • Published at 07:15 pm August 6th, 2015

In response to a complaint submitted by Chhatra League leaders, the Jahangirnagar University authorities have filed a case against a final-year student for making derogatory comments about the prime minister on Facebook.

The case was filed against government and politics department student Shamsul Alam, also a resident student of Maulana Bhashani Hall, with Ashulia police on Wednesday night under the Information and Communication Technology Act.

JU unit Chhatra League Vice-President Al Amin Setu had written an article on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s “Oshomapto Attmojinoni” in a national daily while Organising Secretary Murshedur shared a link of the article on his Facebook timeline on Wednesday.

On that post, Shamsul commented using a fake account with the name of Md Kabir Mamu in Bangla. He wrote: “Well written brother. I have read the book. But the problem is [Prime Minister] Sheikh Hasina is not such a good person that God’s message will come to her.”

Chhatra League leaders of Maulana Bhashani Hall sat in a meeting over the matter the same evening and found that the fake account belonged to Shamsul. Setu and Murshedur then caught Shamsul and handed him over to the university authorities along with a complaint.

Pro-VC Prof Abul Hossain told reporters yesterday that the case had been filed in response to a complaint submitted by as some students.

While contacted, Murshedur told the Dhaka Tribune: “We are promised to resist any conspiracy against our beloved leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his daughter Sheikh Hasina.”
