Pointing at the remark of Prime Minister's ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy that he be tried for 'treason', Gano Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain on Friday said he does not care about the threat of any sedition charge.
"I don't care about the threat of any sedition charge...I have to hear the threat in 2015. It's disgraceful for me, the country and the person who uttered such words," he told a meeting of Gano Forum at the party's central office in the city's Arambagh area.
Recalling that that he faced sedition charges in the past, the eminent jurist said, "Pakistan tried me on sedition charges, BNP also brought the charge in 2007... Ershad also wanted to do."
As per media reports, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's son Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Thursday in his official Facebook page wanted that Dr Kamal Hossain, Daily Star Editor Mahfuz Anam and Nagorik Oikya Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna be arrested and tried for 'treason'.
Pointing at Joy, Dr Kamal said he made childish comment without knowing things properly. "It's not decent for the person like him to make such remarks... No one could have thought that he could make such remarks. It's unfortunate for us."
Replying to a query, Gano Forum President denied his involvement with Mahmudur Rahman Manna in anti-government conspiracy saying that he knew nothing about that.    ?UNB
