The High Court has ordered the government to display Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's portrait in every courtroom across the country within the next two months.

The bench of Justices FRM Nazmul Ahasan and KM Kamrul Kader gave the order on Thursday after hearing a writ petition in this regard.

Earlier on August 21, Supreme Court lawyer Subir Nandi Das filed the petition. In the petition, he mentioned that according to article 4(A) of the Bangladesh constitution, it is mandatory to set up Bangabandhu's portrait in every government, semi-government and autonomous offices.

Article 4(A) states: The portrait of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman shall be preserved and displayed at the offices of the President, the Prime Minister, the Speaker and the Chief Justice and in head and branch offices of all government and semi-government offices, autonomous bodies, statutory public authorities, government and non-government educational institutions, embassies and missions of Bangladesh abroad.

Secretaries of the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary affairs, Ministry of Public Works, Ministry of Finance, Registrar General of the Supreme Court and Registrar of the High Court division were made respondents to the writ petition.
