Enact law to stop fatwa
Bangladesh Mahila Parishad (BMP) on Thursday demanded of the government to enact law to stop religious edict (fatwa) and eve teasing to ensure security of women.
In a statement, the Parishad expressed concern over the assault of a female student at Kaptai Sweden Polytechnic Institute by the male students.
