HC rejects petition against Hasnat for his story

The High Court yesterday rejected a writ petition which sought its directives upon the government to apprehend and prosecute author Hasnat Abdul Hye for writing a story in a Bangla daily.
The court said that if it issues a show-cause order against Hasnat for the story titled “TV Camerar Shamne Meyeti” [The girl in front of the TV camera], other people may come to this court against other write-ups.
The petition was also rejected as it was not submitted before the court for hearing, the court said.
Prof M Wahiduzzaman of Institute of Education and Research of Dhaka University filed the petition on April 21 saying that the story, written by Hasnat in Prothom Alo, is provocative and insulting to the women.
He also prayed to the court to summon Hasnat before it for his explanation.
