Eleven prominent people of the country have issued statements to give priority to the names of martyred teachers and officers and employees in the renaming of various establishments of Dhaka University. They sent the statement to the media on Tuesday.
Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury, Hasan Azizul Haque, Shamsuzzaman Khan, Sarwar Ali, Mofidul Haque, Mamunur Rashid, Nasir Uddin Yusuf,
Muntasir Mamun, Shahriar Kabir, Abdus Selim and Abed Khan.
In a statement, they said, “We have learned from recent news reports that the medical center to be built at Dhaka University has been named after a businessman in the country in exchange for payment.” No decision was taken at the syndicate meeting when protests were raised on the issue. Even then the vice chancellor said. A letter of consent has been issued to the businessman with administrative approval from Akhtaruzzaman’s office. We are outraged by this incident and are drawing the attention of the highest echelons of the government to the matter. At the same time, we wish a proper settlement in the syndicate meeting.
They also said that our expectation is that the various establishments to be built on the centenary of Dhaka University and the golden jubilee year of the war of liberation should be named after the martyred professors and officials of 1971 and especially the medical center should be named after the martyred doctor Mohammad Mortaza.
