Attack on qawwali concert at DU: ASK demands action
Condemning the attack on a qawwali concert at Dhaka University's TSC, Ain O Salish Kendra (ASK) today demanded action against the perpetrators.
ASK demanded that the authorities identify the culprits -- disregarding their political identity -- and take proper steps after a fair investigation.
The rights group came up with the demand in a statement signed by its Executive Director Golam Monowar Kamal.
In the statement, it said that the attack is unacceptable. ASK believes that it is necessary to take adequate measures against the responsible persons, otherwise such incidents will recur.
ASK also demanded that the authorities concerned make public the steps they would take against those involved.
Yesterday, a qawwali concert at TSC on Dhaka University campus was attacked -- allegedly by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.
A group of BCL men vandalised the stage, chairs and beat up the programme organisers and some students, said witnesses.
