Obaidul Quader said. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has instructed Murad to resign. He was asked to resign by Tuesday (December 6th).
“After talking to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina about this on Monday (December 6) evening, I delivered the message to State Minister Murad Hasan at 8 pm,” he added.
The MP has been in the discussion for the last few days due to his controversial remarks. Murad Hasan was at the center of discussions and criticisms at different times.
He made derogatory remarks about BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, her son Tareq Rahman and granddaughter Jaima Rahman on a recent Facebook Live.
After that, allegations of offensive and obscene remarks were also leveled against the leaders of the Chhatra League of Dhaka University. In protest, several currents and former BCL leaders demanded Murad’s resignation.
From then on, the demand for Murad Hasan’s resignation became stronger.
Meanwhile, Murad Hasan’s offensive phone conversation with actress Mahiya Mahi was leaked at midnight on Sunday. It instantly went viral on social media.
Emon confirmed the authenticity of the audio that went viral. Emon said, ‘That’s what you heard. That was a year ago. The Minister of State had called me the night before the opening ceremony of a movie. You have heard the rest. ‘
Murad Hasan is a central member of the Swadhinata Chikitsak Parishad (Swachip), an organization of doctors by profession and pro-Awami League doctors, and the Committee for the Elimination of Killer-Brokers of 1971.
In the government formed after the Eleventh Parliamentary Election, Murad Hasan was first given the charge of State Minister in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Later, in May 2019, he was appointed Minister of State in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
