A total of 150 university teachers and other professionals have protested BNP's Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi's statement regarding noted human rights activist Sultana Kamal and historian Muntassir Mamoon, reports UNB.
"Rizvi's comments regarding Sultana Kamal and Mamoon are baseless and offensive. We demand he take his statements back. We also urge the government to take legal steps against the BNP leader for propagating falsehood," said a press release.
The statement added that Rizvi has attacked Kamal and Mamoon because they do not believe in BNP's version of the truth.
It was under BNP rule that incidents like simultaneous bomb explosions in 63 districts and the stabbing of writer Humayun Azad had happened. Rizvi should remember the past record of his party when talking about someone else's stance regarding human rights, the statement added.
