Legal notice served for Sultana Kamal’s arrest

Advocate Zulfikar Ali Zunu said Sultana has hurt Muslims with her “derogatory and irresponsible comments”

A Supreme Court lawyer on Sunday served a legal notice seeking arrest of prominent human rights activist and former advisor to the caretaker government Sultana Kamal within seven days for hurting religious sentiments of the Muslim majority in the country.

Advocate Zulfikar Ali Zunu served the notice to the inspector general of police (IGP) and the chairman of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) saying Sultana has hurt Muslims with her “derogatory and irresponsible” comments, reports the Bangla Tribune.

According to the notice, the lawyer came to know that Sultana made “irresponsible” comments on the Muslims and Islam in spite of being an eminent person through social media and television. Her comments hurt the majority Muslims of Bangladesh and their faith.

The lawyer also said he served the notice on behalf of millions of Muslims of the country and requested the court to order law enforcement agencies to arrest Sultana Kamal within seven days.

Zunu also said that he took the step as a practicing Muslim and a lawyer of the highest court of the country.
