A defamation lawsuit was filed with a court in Chittagong on Wednesday against Kader Siddiqui for calling Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir a ‘Razakar’.
Abu Taher, Secretary General of Combined Liberation War Fair Organising Council, pressed the charge with the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Hasanul Islam.
Taher’s counsel Tapan Das said the court accepted the case and fixed Mar 28 for hearing.
The magistrate also asked Assistant Commissioner of Kotwali Police Station to submit a report after investigating the case.

According to the complaints, Kader Siddiqui on Feb 9 called the Home Minister a ‘Razakar’ at a council of Krishak Sramik Janata League in Dhaka’s Institution of Engineers. Siddiqui heads the party.
The complainant said he read the news in the daily Azadi in Chittagong the next day.
Taher told bdnews24.com that confusion could be created if a man like Kader Siddiqui had branded the Home Minister a collaborator of the Pakistani occupation forces in the nation’s War of Independence in 1971.
