Imrul Hossain for DOT
 The executive committee of the Bangladesh Federal Journalist Union (BFUJ) expressed its grave concern over the formulation of ‘Data Protection ACT’ in the name of controlling social media platforms, reports daily Naya Diganta.
 Terming it an evil attempt to muzzle the freedom of speech and control the media, the BFUJ urged all concerned to refrain from it.
 At the same time, the BFUJ leaders demanded release of the imprisoned journalists before Eid including Ruhul Amin Gazi and Sadat Hossain.
 The urge was made from a meeting of the executive committee of the BFUJ.
 BFUJ President M Abdullah presided over the virtual meeting while Secretary General Nurul Amin Rokon moderated the programme.
