The High Court today has directed the BTRC chairman to remove the obscene audio-video of State Minister for Information Dr. Murad Hasan. 

The High Court bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md. Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on Tuesday.

On the day, Barrister Sumon approached the court to remove the obscene audio-video of Dr. Murad Hasan this morning.

Barrister Sumon told the court that “it was necessary to remove the obscene audio-videos of the State Minister for Information from social media urgently. If not removed, the youths will become mentally ill after hearing such abusive and obscene messages. Therefore, I am praying for the direction of BTRC to remove the obscene audio-video of the state minister quickly.”

During this, the court said, “The matter was heard before the Deputy Attorney General. But no order was issued in this regard as the Deputy Attorney General did not appear in court till the report was written.”

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Dr. Md. Murad Hasan, who was criticized across the country, resign from the Cabinet within 24 hours for making controversial comments on social media.
