Teachers and students of Dhaka University along with writers and cultural personalities yesterday protested the attack on eminent science fiction writer and educationist Professor Dr Mohammed Zafar Iqbal. They also demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of the perpetrators who are involved in brutal attack on prof Zafar Iqbal at Shahjalal University of  Science and Technology. They also urged the government and law enforcers to arrest the masterminds behind the attack and to uproot militancy from the society.  

They came up with the demands at separate human chain programmes arranged by Ganajagaran Mancha and Sammilita Sankritik Jote formed at the altar of Aparajeya Bangla on the DU campus and Central Shaheed Minar premises. Prof Robayet Ferdous of Mass Communication and Journalism department of DU said “Attack on Prof Zafar Iqbal means attack on Bangladesh”.

Similar attempts were made to kill writer Humayun Azad and blogger Avijit Roy, he added.  He also said, “We have to be united in resisting terrorism and militancy to establish peace and security in life”.
