HC wants risky school, madrasa bldgs identified

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The High Court (HC) yesterday directed the authorities concerned to conduct a survey to identify the vulnerable buildings of primary and high schools and madrasas across the country. The HC bench also asked the government to submit a report after repairing all the vulnerable buildings to make them safe for students.

It also directed the government to make all the buildings of primary and high schools and madrasa safe, secure and education-friendly.

The HC directed the local government and rural development (LGRD) secretary, the local government engineering department (LGED) chief engineer and additional chief engineer to conduct the survey. It asked them to submit a report in this regard before the court within three months.

In response to a writ petition, the HC bench, comprising Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Md Khairul Alam, passed the order.

It also issued a rule, asking the government to explain in four weeks why its inaction in making school and madrasa buildings and their premises safe, secure and education-friendly should not be declared illegal.

The HC bench also fixed August 21 for passing further orders on this issue.

Law and Life Foundation, a rights organisation, filed the writ petition with the HC, seeking the necessary order, alleging that many school and madrasa buildings across the country were hazardous.

During the hearing of the petition, the petitioner's lawyer, barrister Humayun Kabir Pallab, told the court that many school and madrasa buildings were reportedly vulnerable. Students are concerned about their safety as untoward incidents have been taking place due to the damaged roof of the buildings. Those buildings must be repaired for the security of the students, he argued.
