Shun Khaledaminus formula BNP tells govt

first_imgBNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoBNP on Thursday urged the government to stop a ‘plot’ to eliminate its chairperson Khaleda Zia from politics though a ‘minus-formula’ in the name of parole, reports UNB.Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also said their chairperson wants to walk out of jail on bail as the cases in which she was convicted are bailable.”A widespread propaganda is on over parole. The current regime is hatching a far-reaching plot to make a political gain after putting our leader’s (Khaleda’s) life at stake,” he said.Rizvi said there is no point of hatching a conspiracy to remove Khaleda from politics.”Let the law take its own course without creating any obstacle to granting her (Khaleda) bail. Our leader will be freed on bail through a normal legal process if the illegal interference in court proceedings is stopped,” he said pointing at the prime minister.Rizvi alleged that some pro-government newspapers are carrying out false campaign over Khaleda’s release on parole.”Speculations are there that the intelligence agencies are involved with the media propaganda. The ruling party has resorted to cunning politics to make its mission on parole a success,” the BNP leader said. He alleged that some media have been running news without any source about Khaleda Zia’s release on parole to go abroad. “Even, they’re mentioning the specific date of her departure. But, BNP has no knowledge about it. Our leader wants to be freed on bail through a normal legal process.”Rizvi claimed that their chairperson is seriously ill as she cannot move her hands and legs. “She has not been given proper treatment. Doctors said her diabetes is still not under control.”He bemoaned that media outlets are playing a silent role over Khaleda’s illness.The BNP leader said their chairperson wants to receive treatment at a specialised hospital of her choice.last_img read more

Fort Worth Lesbian Couple Sues Trump Administration After Being Blocked As Foster

first_img Share CHRISTOPHER CONNELLY / KERA NEWSFatma Marouf, right, and her wife, Bryn Esplin, were told they don’t qualify to foster children through a federal program because they don’t “mirror the Holy Family,” according to the lawsuit.A Fort Worth couple is suing the federal government and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. They argue they were blocked from fostering refugee children because they’re a same-sex couple.When Bryn Esplin and her wife, Fatma Marouf, both professors at Texas A&M University, asked the local Catholic Charities chapter about becoming foster parents, they were told, according to the lawsuit, that they didn’t qualify to be foster parents because they didn’t “mirror the Holy Family.” Esplin says they clarified that the Catholic Charities representative meant that they didn’t qualify because they were a same-sex couple.“To be turned away from even applying … was not just disappointing to us, but it denies children the opportunity to have a loving home,” Esplin said at a news conference Tuesday announcing the lawsuit.The lawsuit argues that violated the couple’s first amendment, due process and equal protection rights.The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services pays the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to place unaccompanied refugee kids with foster families. The conference did not respond to requests for comment.Religious beliefs should have no place in deciding who can or cannot apply for a government program, even if it’s being administered by a religious group, says Ken Upton from the LGBT rights group Lambda Legal.“HHS knows they couldn’t say that to participate in this program you have to be a married Catholic or at least look like one to us,” Upton said. “HHS could never do that. So they can’t farm the grant out to the private organization, give them the taxpayer money, and then let them put this on top of it.” The lawsuit was filed in Washington, DC., and any decision would apply to federal refugee adoption programs nationwide.Last year, Texas enacted a state law giving more leeway to bar applicants from fostering kids based on religious beliefs to organizations the state contracts to place foster kids.last_img read more
