Rahmat Ullah back as Jaldhaka College principal

Court orders to pay all dues

Jaldhaka College Principal Md Rahmat Ullah, forced to resign by the then Jamaat lawmaker Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury during the four-party alliance government, has been reinstated to the post through a court order.
Following a verdict by Nilphamari Additional District and Sessions Judge's Court on Wednesday, Md Rahmat Ullah, also a freedom fighter, submitted his joining letter to the present governing body president, the UNO of Jaldhaka, and resumed his work as principal on Sunday.
The court also ordered the authorities to pay him all the dues of the last five years.
Students and teachers greeted Rahmat Ullah warmly as he arrived at the college.
The then governing body president of Jaldhaka College, local lawmaker Mizanur Rahman Chowdhury forced Principal Rahmat Ullah to resign by threatening him to harass by filing case.
After his resignation on August 24 in 2003, the then Jamaat-dominated college governing body handed over the charge of acting principal to Mozaharul Islam, a 'Rokan' (a high ranking leader) of Jamaat. He continued as acting principal for three years.
In the middle of 2006, the governing body chaired by Jamaat lawmaker Mizanur Rahman appointed Jamaat activist Fazlul Haque as a regular principal, superseding eight senior teachers of the college.
All Party Students Committee of Jaldhaka College, comprising Chhatra League and Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal and others protested the 'illegal appointment'.
Md Rahmat Ullah filed an appeal with Nilphamari Additional District and Sessions Judge's Court.
There are allegations that former Jamaat lawmaker Mizanur Rahman, who became governing body chairman of 13 educational institutions in his constituency, removed many pro-liberation teachers, employees and heads of institutions and appointed more than one hundred Jamaat activists as teachers and employees in those institutions.
