Bangladesh taking action against top newspaper for promoting terror outfit Hizb-ut Tahrir

Dhaka, Bangladesh: Bangladeshi Parliament is discussing for an action against leading English daily newspaper for promoting internationally banned terror outfit Hizb-ut Tahrir by publishing its poster.

Responding a question in Parliament, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Hasina Wajid ensured the house to take action against The Daily Star that printed a news about poster of Hizb-ut-Tahrir.

“Action will be taken against those who tried to patronise Hizb-ut Tahrir by publishing its poster,” she said on the floor of the house on Wednesday.

“Publishing a poster of a banned organisation means helping its publicity,” she added.

She was replying to a query submitted by lawmaker Pir Fazlur Rahman who had wanted to know whether the premier would take any measurers against Hizb-ut Tahrir so that it cannot emerge in Bangladesh like Islamic State (IS) in the Middle East.

Earlier on February 15, Shahjalal Kibria, a lawyer of Dhaka Judge’s Court filed a case with the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court in Dhaka against The Daily Star Editor and Publisher Mahfuz Anam, Chief News Editor Syed Ashfaqul Haque and Chief Photographer Sk Enamul Haq for publishing a photograph of Hizb-ut Tahrir poster.
