Terming unexpected the humiliation of a Narayanganj school teacher by the local MP, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday said they will take action in this regard if the Education Ministry requests them.
“The Narayanganj incident is related to a teacher, and now the Education Minister is looking into it. If he [Education Minister] requests us, then we’ll take action in this regard,” he said, reports UNB.
The minister further said, “Everybody respects teachers. What happened to the Narayanganj teacher is unexpected, and it’s not descent. Those of us who saw the incident are shocked and worried.”
Asaduzzaman came up with the remarks at Rajarbagh Police Lines Barrack ground in the afternoon after joining namaz-e-janaza for two police constables-- Md Samidul Haque, 30, and Motahar Hossain, 28--who died in Mali in a cyclone on Sunday while serving under the UN peacekeeping mission there.
As his attention was drawn to a High Court rule upon his ministry and other authorities to take action against the Narayanganj MP, Kamal said, “If there’s any direction from the High Court, we’ll comply with it.”
