2 cases filed against DU professor Zia 
Dhaka University’s Criminology dept Professor Zia Rahman has been sued for his comment over ‘Assalamu Alaikum’ and ‘Allah Hafez’ in a recent television talk show.

Mahbub Alam, editor of monthly Al Baiyinnat and Daily Al Ihsan, filed a case while lawyer Imrul Hasan filed another.

Both the cases were filed with the court of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal judge Ash Shams Jaglul Hossain on Sunday.

Earlier on Thursday, Supreme Court lawyer M Sheikh Omar Sharif on behalf of Mahbub Alam served legal notice to Dr Zia Rahman calling upon him to seek apology after withdrawing his statement.

Prof Zia in a recent television talk show commented that uttering ‘Assalamu Alaikum’ and ‘Allah Hafez’ in correct manners is signs of militancy.
