Actions will be taken against authors hurting religious sentiment at the Ekushey Book Fair, Dhaka city police chief Asaduzzaman Mia warned today.
“We will take action if the writers and publishers bring any book that could hurt religious sentiment,” said the Dhaka Metropolitan Police commissioner.
He was making the comments while inspecting the security arrangement at Ekushey Book Fair grounds at Suhrawardy Udyan this afternoon.
A dedicated committee, led by Bangla Academy, has been formed to scrutinise the books. Plainclothes will also monitor if any such books are displayed in the fair, he said.
