History distorted in SC verdict: Law minister

Bangladesh’s history was distorted in the observation made by Chief Justice SK Sinha for his verdict to cancel the 16th constitutional amendment, the law minister has said.

The comments called for an inquiry over possible misconduct, Law Minister Anisul Huq said during a meeting with journalists on Sunday, reports bdnews24.com.

“History was distorted … there is no doubt about that.”

“Our independence did not happen overnight. Its declaration also did not happen overnight. Bangabandhu announced it after earning the people’s mandate through a political movement.

“It will be a crime if I distort it.”

Replying to questions, he said, “So far, there is no definition for misconduct. So this has to be checked to see if there was misconduct or anything else … there is scope for that.”
