Leaders of about 40 bar associations across the country Friday urged the lawyers of the country to build up a united movement to tackle bomb attacks on the people, particularly the lawyers, judges, litigants and police, across the country, reports BDNEWS.
They made this appeal while addressing the extended meeting of the Bar Council with its vice chairman Rokanuddin Mahmud in the chair at its auditorium Friday.
Bar Council sources told the news agency that 74 representatives from over 40 associations attended the meeting where media representatives were not allowed.
Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Mahbubey Alam said dialogue should be held between the government and those elements that are creating problems in the country.
Referring to the dialogues between the government and Parbattaya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJS) in Bangladesh, and the government and LTTE in Srilanka, the SCBA president said dialogue always takes place between the parties who are involved in the issues.
According to the sources, some pro-government lawyers stressed the need for national dialogue to tackle the militancy, extremism and bomb attacks.
The bar representatives also urged the Bar Council leaders to undertake next course of action programmes against the militancy and extremism on the basis of consensus.
The next course of action will be fixed at the council meeting of the Bar Council, meeting sources said.
