Fakhrul at death anniv of National Poet
The remarks of Shamsuddin Choudhury on CJ ‘hateful’
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday said former Supreme Court judge AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury should be put on trial for making hateful comments on chief justice SK Sinha.
The secretary general of Bangladesh Nationalist Party said, ‘His (Choudhury’s) remarks (on chief justice) are indecent, unforgivable and devoid of courtesy and norms. I think, these remarks are tantamount to contempt of court for which he should be tried.’
Fakhrul came up with the comments while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at the grave of national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, marking his 41st death anniversary.
The way Choudhury talks and use words, the BNP leader said, it gives an impression that he lacks the minimum quality to be a apex court judge.
Earlier, at a discussion on Saturday, Choudhury doubted if the 16th amendment verdict was written by the chief justice.
The BNP leader said they, on behalf of their chairperson Khaleda Zia, paid tributes to the national poet and prayed for salvation of his departed soul on the occasion of his death anniversary.
Referring that Nazrul’s model is an inspiration for the nation, Fakhrul said the poet had given the nation inspiration for waging the Liberation War and other rights movements. ‘His contributions to art and literature, and his patriotism are incomparable.’
