A Dhaka court on Thursday issued a warrant for the arrest of BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman in a case filed for calling Bangabandhu a “great Razakar”.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate M Yunus Khan issued the arrest warrant after M Mostafizur Rahman Dulal, a member of Dhaka Bar, filed a defamation case against Tarique Rahman for his disparaging remarks on Bangabandhu.
Earlier in the morning, five separate defamation cases were filed against Tarique in Dhaka, Comilla, Chittagong and Natore for the derogatory remark.On Monday (Dec 15), BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman called Sheikh Mujibur Rahman a “big Razakar” for what he said disbanding Awami League calling it a “party of thugs”, and claimed that Bangabandhu’s family had no contribution to the country’s Liberation War.
According to a message received here on Tuesday (Dec 16), Tarique, addressing a discussion marking the Victory Day in London on Monday said, ”Awami League claims that it’s a party of War of Independence, but it’s Sheikh Mujib who had banned Awami League describing it as a party of thugs. So, if it’s a party of Liberation War, Sheikh Mujib is a great Razakar for obliterating Awami League.”
Meanwhile, A local Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leader in Sirajganj on Thursday sent a legal notice to BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman for making derogatory remarks about Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Advocate Morshedul Islam, on behalf of Kazipur upazila unit BCL office secretary Rana Ahmed, sent the legal notice to the BNP central office in the capital through registered mail.

His remarks are tantamount to sedition, the lawyer said, asking Tarique Rahman to render apology within seven days after withdrawing the comments.
He also said they would take recourse to law if the notice goes unheeded by the deadline. – UNB
