Rape has become an epidemic: Dr Kamal

Expressing concerns over the growing incidents of rape in the country, Jatiya Oikyafront convener Dr Kamal Hossain yesterday urged people to forge a united movement to protect women’s rights and establish the rule of law.

“Untoward incidents are taking place in the country one after another. The rape of women has turned into an epidemic. The deterioration in law and order is evident here,” he said while talking to reporters after a meeting of the alliance at his Motijheel chamber.

Dr Kamal, also Gonoforum president, further said, “We think the movement has to be strengthened and we have to take to the streets actively so that people’s rights are protected and rule of law is established. It is now essential.”

Oikyafront leader ASM Abdur Rob said they will hold a mass gathering at Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka on April 30 in protest against rape and repression of women.
