Protesters are demonstrating near the main gate of Bangla Academy in condemnation of its decision to bar publishing house Shrabon Prokashoni in Ekushey Book Fair.

In attendance of writers, cultural and eminent personalities and activists, the protest kicked off inside Dhaka University campus at around 3:30pm.

“The bar on Shrabon Prokashoni is illegal. We don’t receive it. Bangla Academy must immediately withdraw its decision,” said Kafil Ahmed, noted singer and cultural activist.

Bangla Academy drew widespread flak on the social media last night after people got to know about its decision with Shrabon Prokashoni taken over “greater interest of the Ekushey fair”.
