The High Court has issued a rule seeking to find out why inactivity will not be illegal to take steps to use Bangla dates alongside English dates with all the national days including February 21.

A High Court Division Bench comprising Justice Md. Mostafizur Rahman and Justice M Inayetur Rahim and passed the order while the writ petition was filed by Mohammad Nanskar Ali, a resident of Damurhuda in Chuadanga.

Lawyers for the writ petitioner Moniruzzaman Linkon said Bangla dates are ignored in various national and international programs, including National Day. That is why the writ is done. After the hearing, the court issued the rule. Within a week, the Cabinet Secretary has been asked to respond to this rule.
