Prof Anwar says sorry to army

The detained general secretary of Dhaka University Teachers Association (Duta) yesterday apologised to the army for the attack on them during the recent campus violence.
Also the dean of bioscience, Anwar Hossain made the public apology before the newsmen while being taken to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court, Dhaka.
"As general secretary of the teachers association and a guardian of the students I regret the incident that must have caused pain and hurt to every single member of the ranks ranging from a soldier to the army chief," he continued.
"From the heart, we offer our apologies for the incident. And we don't feel any shame, or anguish to do so," added Prof Anwar.
"We are sorry for the humiliation and injury dealt to the reputation and esteem of the army personnel," he observed.
"This army is the emblem of the state of Bangladesh, sovereignty and solidarity. And we can feel how much it pains an army personnel to watch an attack on their uniforms," the detained DU professor told the reporters.
He also said, "We expect that every army man will accept the apologies, and forget the grievances they had suffered."
