Taking a swipe at prominent jurist Dr Kamal Hossain, Awami League’s publicity and publication secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud on Monday said Dr Kamal has no ethical point to question the legitimacy and the authority of the current parliament.
“Dr Kamal was a member of the constitution committee and was also an unelected member of the 1972 assembly. If an unelected Law Minister had the right to place the constitution then why the current parliament members won’t have the legitimacy to amend the constitution’?” he said.
Dr Hasan Mahmud was addressing a discussion on the country’s current political situation organised by Bangabandhu Academy at Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU).
“This amendment is the safeguard to judges. It ensures the authority, security and independence of judges,” he said.
Terming AK Khandker as a ‘conspirator’ and ‘beneficiary’ of all governments, the former minister said: “Ak Khandker must apologize to people, or else, people will dump into the dustbin.”
Held with Bangabandhu Academy general secretary Humayun Kabir Mizi in the chair, the discussion was addressed, among others, by former state minister Shamshul Haque Tuku.
