Political crimes on the rise in the country: Hasan Mahmud

Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud said today, July 23 along with social crimes, political crimes are also increasing in the country.

 The Minister said, “Burning people in the name of politics does not happen anywhere in the world. Setting fire and burning people are heinous crimes. “

 He was addressing a discussion organized by Crime Reporters Association of Bangladesh (CRAB) marking its 40th founding anniversary at an auditorium of Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) in the capital.

The minister also urged the journalists to work for protecting society from political crimes. People are getting involved in social and economic crimes to make money and raising prices of commodities unjustly for looting money.

Mentioning crime reporting is a risky task, Hasan Mahmud said the crime reporters have faced various problems and repressions but they didn’t back down. He said, “I would like to urge you [journalists] to write against those corruptions.”

The minister said he will be beside journalists in future just like in the present and past. Investigative reports on drugs and militancy help the government in taking action. He urged the members of CRAB to remain united in future just as they have remained united for the last 40 years.
