Dr Kamal wants prompt legal action against Shah Shafi

Dhaka, Jan 14 – Denouncing Hefajat-e-Islam chief Allama Shah Ahmed Shafi’s recent anti-female education comments, Dr Kamal Hossain’s Gono Forum on Monday demanded that legal actions be taken against him. In a joint statement, Gono Forum president Dr Kamal Hossain and general secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu termed Allama Shafi’s comments as indecent and urged people to be vocal against his edict against female education.
“Ahmed Shafi is an anti-feminist and anti-constitution element who also nurtures anti-Liberation War spirit. We strongly demand that the government take prompt legal actions against this edict-mongering person,” the statement said.
The Gono Forum leader alleged that the Hefajat chief wants to plunge the country and society into darkness through his imaginary edicts misinterpreting the religion.
On Friday, Hefajat-e-Islam Ameer Allama Shafi at a programme in Chattogram’s Hathazari urged parents not to send their daughters to schools and colleges for further education after they complete fourth or fifth grades.
Shafi said, “If you allow your girls to be educated up to eight, ninth or tenth grade, or to have MA or BA degree, they would no longer remain yours. Somebody else would take them away from you after marriage. Don’t you see things like this in newspapers?”- UNB
