In an interview with Diganta TV, Mahmudur Rahmans mother appeals to Bangladeshis and the conscientious members of the international community to help restore her son to her. Rahman was arrested early on Thursday by detective branch police from his office.
His mother says her son works purely for the cause of the people and their demands, and to protect the lives and interests of Bangladesh’s Muslims. She further comments that Rahman had been confined to his offices for the past four months and in a previous arrest in 2010 endured severe torture. Rahman’s mother is concerned that he is again facing torture in police custody.
