Sedition case against Khaleda Monday

24 January 2016, Nirapad News: Home ministry has given approval to file a sedition case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia following her comment over the number of martyrs during country’s war of independence.

Applicant and also Supreme Court lawyer Momtaj Uddin Ahmed Mehedi received the letter with ministry approval on Sunday (January 24).

The lawyer told the media that he will go to the judicial court to file a case on Monday.

However, banglanews has also received a copy of the letter.

Earlier on December 21, 2015, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia at a rally of freedom fighters commented that there is a controversy regarding the number of martyrs of country’s war of independence.

On December 23, Momtaj Uddin Ahmed sent a legal notice to withdraw her comment mentioning her mentality of ‘sedition’.

The lawyer later sought home ministry’s approval as he did not get any reply of the notice.

Khaleda’s lawyer and also Supreme Court Bar Association president Advocate Khandker Mahbub Hossain opined that there is nothing of sedition in BNP chief’s speech regarding the accurate number of martyrs.
