Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today said as per the statements of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, it seems that BNP has taken the side of those who create rumours and animosity.

He came up with the remark while talking to reporters after attending a meeting with filmmakers at Awami League president’s Dhanmondi political office here.

Responding to a remark of Fakhrul, Hasan, also the AL Joint general secretary, said the big question is that which one Fakhrul says dissent.

If spreading rumours and hatred through social media is a dissenting opinion, then Fakhrul’s statement supports those who spread rumours and hatred, he added.

Noting that the BNP leaders are continuously criticising the government and making falsehood, Hasan said if the government does not tolerate the dissenting opinions, they would not be able to do so.

The government never tries to repress dissent as it is a constitutional right of one, he said, adding BNP leaders are now taking the side of rumour-mongers capitalising on this opportunity.

About the BNP men’s infections with coronavirus, the AL joint general secretary sought early recovery of the virus-infected BNP leaders and workers.

He said several thousand of AL leaders and activists, including 10 central leaders, have already been infected with the deadly virus but it is mentionable that Mirza Fakhrul has doubt about this figure.

About the film industry, the information minister said the government has decided to provide grants to more filmmakers in making films aiming to help the COVID-19-hit film industry.

Filmmakers Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, Giasuddin Selim, Piplu Khan and Abu Shahed Emon took part in the meeting.
