The case centers on her ‘derogatory remarks' about freedom fighters and Bangabandhu



The High Court has granted six-month bail to BNP Chairperson and Ex-Prime Minister Khaleda Zia in a defamation case filed against her in Narail. The case centers over her “derogatory remarks” about freedom fighters and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The bench of Justice Muhammad Abdul Hafiz and Justice Kashefa Hussain, on Monday, passed the order after hearing a petition filed by Khaleda’s counsel. The petition was filed on Thursday.

Earlier on August 5, a Narail court rejected her bail petition.

On December 21, 2015, Khaleda Zia, at a discussion at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, raised questions about the number of Liberation War martyrs. 

During that time she said: "There are controversies about how many were martyred in the Liberation War. There are also many books and documents about the controversies."

After Khaleda’s remarks, Raihan Farooque Imam, a resident of Naragati in Narail, filed the case on December 24, 2015.
