If any political party tries to damage public properties resorting to militancy, it can be banned with an executive order, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) chief said on Saturday.

“This type of parties had not been banned earlier. But if any party continues such destructive activities, it can be banned constitutionally,” Mizanur Rahman said after visiting victims of recent vandalism and arson by Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatra Shibir men in Banshkhali upazila.

“What they have done here can be termed as fight against the state,” the NHRC chief said, adding that the state should not tolerate such activities.

Mizanur visited Banshkhali Upazila Parishad, which became the target of Jamaat-Shibir arson attack, and Upazila Krishi Office, office of Upazila fisheries officer and some other places where vandalisms were carried out since February 28.
