Mia Ghulam Parwar protests police’s inhuman baton charges upon the agitating nurses
Thursday, 02nd June, 2016

Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Professor Mia Ghulam Parwar has issued the following statement on 2nd June, 2016 protesting the inhuman incident as over 50 female nurses became critically injured as police charged baton upon the agitating nurses who are in a movement demanding the appointment based on their batch and seniority while they went in Dhanmondi of the capital to cordon the house of the Health Minister Mohammad Nasim.


“The government’s initiative to carry attack on the agitating female nurses utilizing the police forces is inhuman and unjust. Police brutally charged baton upon them and kicked them repeatedly. Alongside the policemen, some plain cloth youths also took part in these barbarous attacks. This government, in different earlier occasions, also assaulted and baton charged on the agitating females. It becomes a bad habit of the government to carry torture upon the females.


Bina Akhter, the president of the Bangladesh Diploma Unemployed Nurses Association informed that, 3 month pregnant lady Salma Akhter became the victim of forced abortion due to police’s baton charges and assaulting move. The countrymen are highly shocked with this mournful incident. I hope that the concerned authorities will investigate the incident in order to take punitive measures against the responsible personnel behind this inhuman incident.


Graduate Nurses Society and Diploma Unemployed Nurses Association have been carrying out this movement for long days. I am urging the authorities to consider their just demands and to hold dialogues with the protesting nurses in a bid to bring an end to their ongoing movement.”
