Nine protesting Ebtedayee madrasa teachers fall ill
Nine madrasa teachers, who are involved in a movement demanding nationalization of all registered Ebtedayee madrasas in Bangladesh, have fallen ill because of chilly weather in the winter season. Confirming the matter to the correspondent, Secretary General of Bangladesh Independent Ebtedayee Madrasa Teachers’ Association, Kazi Mokhlesur Rahman stated that the teachers are suffering from common cold, fever and respiratory complications. “Many of our teachers are suffering from cold related diseases, such as the common cold and pneumonia. We are taking steps to send them to Dhaka Medical College Hospital,” he added. The madrasa teachers submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina following a human chain on November 10 last year, and gave December 31 as an ultimatum for meeting their demand of nationalization of all registered Ebtedayee madrasas.
