Bangladesh maintains zero tolerance to terrorism

Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu said, `Bangladesh maintains zero tolerance to terrorism and the massmedia is on highest flourish in history.’

The minister was speaking to Steven Butler, the Asia Program Coordinator of the New York based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), when called on at his ministry office Wednesday afternoon.

`The government of Sheikh Hasina focussed on free flow of information with the expansion of media. And terrorism and fanaticism are threats to both the government and media’ said Inu. The minister also briefed the CPJ coordinator on the ongoing trials to bring the murderers of bloggers to justice.

Steven Butler, who is on weeklong visit to Dhaka said, he was aware of the media expansion in Bangladesh and requested speeding up the trial process to set example of quick justice of blogger-killings.

Chief Executive of Ekushey Television Monjurul Ahsan Bulbul and Public Relations Officer of the ministry attended the meeting.
