Govt to protest NY Times editorial


The government will protest a recent editorial of New York Times that slammed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Information Minister Hasanul Haque Inu said the government will send a rejoinder to the New York Times. Three days after the publication of the New York Times editorial, the minister came up with the reaction while talking to journalists at his office this afternoon. The New York Times editorial stated that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina appears “determined to hang on to power and to neutralize her opponents by any means necessary”. The editorial also urged Sheikh Hasina to restore an independent judiciary and put an end to the persecution of human rights activists.
