'This detached government has enacted various black laws like DSA as a ploy to prolong its power by intimidating people'

Gonoforum President Dr Kamal Hossain has demanded the government to scrap the Digital Security Act (DSA) instead of just amending it. 

"We're in favor of scrapping the law. It's hurting our freedom of speech and freedom of thought. Our society should be made free from it," said Kamal. 

He made the remarks at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club on Saturday. 

In a written statement, Kamal said: "This detached government has enacted various black laws as a ploy to prolong its power by intimidating people. DSA is part of that." 

Highlighting the current situation in the country, he said: "Freedom gained with the blood of three million martyrs and the sacrifices of two million tortured mothers and sisters have taken a kneeling policy today. Instead of establishing democracy and the rule of law, a haven of corruption and misrule has been established in the country." 

When Kamal was asked about the other faction of Gonoforum, which was holding a separate program at the Press Club at the same time, he replied: "Some people have left Gonoforum. Without them, we're currently more united than ever." 

About the price hike of essentials, Kamal said an “unholy syndicate” of corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, and businessmen is responsible for it and people need to get united against political mismanagement and plundering.  

Gonoforum will launch a mass contact in Ramadan to create unity among people based on the policies of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhashani, Sher-e-Bangla AK Fazlul Huq, and Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy.
