 The case was filed against five people, including Bangabandhu Cultural Alliance president and former state minister for post and telecommunications Tarana Halim, for negatively presenting the late President Ziaur Rahman, the founder of the BNP, reports Jago News.
 Ekushey Medalist Chharakar Abu Saleh filed the case in the Second Senior Assistant Judge’s Court in Dhaka yesterday.
 A hearing on the admissibility of the case will be held today (September 29), court sources said.
 The other defendants in the case are actor Saju Khadem, playwright Mannan Hira, Noakhali-2 MP and RTV chairman Morshed Alam and Information Ministry Secretary.
The drama ‘Indemnity’ was recently aired on various channels including satellite television and Facebook in protest of the acquittal of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. It also highlights the power-sharing and behind-the-scenes incidents of Pakistan’s allies after the brutal assassination of the Father of the Nation in 1975.
The stage play was constructed with the own funds of Bangabandhu Cultural Alliance as a symbolic protest against the Indemnity Ordinance. The play was composed and directed by Mannan Hira.
Meanwhile, BNP leaders and activists burnt the puppets of actors Saju Khadem and Tarana Halim in protest of making and broadcasting a ‘perverted drama’ about Ziaur Rahman.
