Writ seeks removal of Greek goddess from  SC premises
A writ has been filed with the High Court seeking removal of the statue of Greek goddess from the Supreme Court premises. Advocate AK Azad on behalf of his client Mohammad Arifur Rahman filed the writ petition on Sunday. In the petition, the court was urged to ask the government to explain why directives should not be given to remove the statue from the court premises. Secretaries to the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Ministry of Law and Ministry of Public Works, Supreme Court registrar general and registrar, chief engineer and executive engineer of Public Works Department and secretary of Supreme Court Lawyers Association were made respondents in the writ. According to the petition, the installation of the statue of Lady Justice in front of the Supreme Court is contradictory to articles 12 and 23 of the constitution. It also hurts the religious sentiment of the nation, 95% of which are Muslims, the writ said. The statue was set up on the Supreme Court premises in December last year.
