Pakistan cricket team’s appeal against 21 members rejected

Mohammad Al Mamun, general secretary of an organization called Bangladesh Muktiyuddha Mancha, filed the petition today. The court first recorded the plaintiff’s statement. The plaintiff’s application was later dismissed.

After filing the petition, the plaintiff’s lawyer Anis Uz Zaman told Prothom Alo that according to the Bangladesh flag rules, the national flag of Bangladesh is a symbol of independence, sovereignty and dignity. In order for a foreign national to display the national flag of his country in this country, prior approval of the government is required. However, members of the Pakistan cricket team displayed the country’s national flag at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on November 15. But they did not get any approval from the Bangladesh government. They later applied to the Bangladesh Cricket Board for permission to display the flag. Through this, the members of the Pakistan cricket team have committed a criminal offense under the Bangladesh National Anthem, Flag and Symbol Order 1972. Therefore, a petition was filed in the court against 21 members of the Pakistan cricket team.

The accused were Pakistan national cricket team captain Mohammad Babar Azam, coach Saqlain Mushtaq, manager Mansoor Rana, members Shadab Khan, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Asif Ali, Haider Ali and Harris Rauf. , Hasan Ali, Iftekhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Wasim Jr., Shahnewaz Dahani, Osman Qadir, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shahin Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Shahid Aslam.
