’Nab those who threaten Sultana Kamal’

AA Correspondent

The general secretary of Samajtantrik Mohila Forum Engineer Shampa Basu said the violence against women and children should be stopped, arrested those who threatened Sultana Kamal and the justice of Kalpana Chakma killing and Langudu attacks ensured.

Shampa Basu said these in a rally before bringing out a procession by Samajtantrik Mohila Forum in front of National Press Club yesterday. The speakers said an 8-year girl was raped by two guards of a house in Badda area of the capital city few days back after inviting her at the iftar. Sukhia Rabidas was beaten to death after rape in Habiganj. Women of tribal communities have become the victims of sexual assaults.

Though there are racial identities, all are women. None are being spared. From 3-year old minor girl to 60-year old elderly woman are being victims of sexual violence. Hefazat-e-Islam distorted the statements of Human Rights activist and women’s leader Sultana Kamal and threatened her.

But the government is silent. By this, the government is patronizing the rise of the fundamental group that is against the spirit of the Liberation War. We demanded the immediate arrest of those who threatened Sultana Kamal.

The presidium member of Samajtantrik Mohila Forum Shamsunnahar Jotsna, central leader Shipra Mandal, Chhatra Front leader Mukta Baroi and Sushmita Mariam and others were present in the program moderated by Samajtantrik Mohila Forum leader Rukhsana Afroz Asha.
