The High Court (HC) today ordered the authorities concerned to preserve and display the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at all courtrooms across the country.
A High Court division bench comprising Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order, after holding primary hearing on a writ filed in this regard. The court also issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain in four weeks as to why it shall not declare inaction of respondents in preserving and displaying portraits of Bangabandhu at courtrooms, illegal.
The High Court asked law secretary, housing and public works secretary, finance secretary and Registrar General of the Supreme Court to reply the rule. Supreme Court lawyer Subir Nandi Das filed the writ on August 21.
“The court has asked the respondents to comply with its order and submit a report on this after two months,” Advocate Das said.
