A Dhaka court on Tuesday summoned Bangladesh Krishak-Sramik Janata League President Kader Siddiqui for one of his speeches that allegedly ‘defames’ Home Minister MK Alamgir.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrates Court issued summons for Mar 18 after primary hearing of a petition from one Freedom Fighter Ruhul Amin Majumder Tuesday morning.
The petition statement said Kader Siddiqui on Feb 9 at a party rally had said war crimes trials were not possible with a 'Razakar Home Minister' around. The statement was reported in the media the next day.
Kader Siddiqui, a Bir Uttam had said he could provide proof that MK Alamgir was a Razakar. “During Liberation War, how come he (MK Alamgir) was an Additional District Commissioner (ADC) of Mymensingh?”
Complainant Majumder from Dhaka’s Free School Street filed the case because he feels insulted by the statement as a 'freedom fighter'.
