Display Bangabandhu’s portrait at courtrooms: HC

The High Court today directed the authorities concerned to preserve and display the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at all courtrooms across the country in next two months.

The court also issued a rule asking the respondents to explain in four weeks why their inaction to preserve and display the portrait of Bangabandhu should not be declared illegal.

Secretaries to the ministries of law, housing and public works and finance and the Supreme Court registrar general and the High Court registrar have been made respondents to the rule.

The bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahsan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader came up with the order and rule following a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Subir Nandi Das challenging the inaction of the respondents to preserve and display at the courtroom.

Advocate Subir told The Daily Star that there is an obligation for the respondents to preserve and display the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the courtroom as per Article 4 (A) of the constitution but they did not comply with the constitutional provision, he said.
