The High Court on Monday directed the government to explain by December 10 why ‘Joy Bangla’ would not be declared as national motto of the county.
A bench of Justice Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and Justice Mohammad Ullah issued the rule after hearing a public interest litigation writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Bashir Ahmed, also former Supreme Court unit president of Bangabandhu Awami Ainjibi Parishad.
Secretaries to the cabinet division, and law and education ministries are asked to reply the rule within the stipulated time.
Bashir submitted to the court that ‘Joy Bangla slogan’ inspired people to fight against Pakistani military ‘under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’ during the war of independence in 1971.
Earlier on November 20, the same bench asked the government to explain in three weeks why March 7 would not be declared as a ‘National Historic Day’ marking the historic speech delivered by country’s founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971.
