Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said speedy trial over murder of Sonagazi madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi will be marked as a milestone in our socioeconomic perspective and it will start a process of resisting violence against women.

“We would be able to come out of culture of impunity through such trials and it will be helpful in establishing parity among men and women. A message was given through this judgement that we would be ready to award maximum punishment if anyone commits such heinous crimes,” he said.

The minister said these while addressing a grand finale of National Debate against Oppression organised by jointly Debate for Democracy and ATN Bangla at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC) Sunday morning.

Debate for Democracy Chairman Hasan Ahmed Chowdhury Kiron presided over the function. Dhaka College and Eden Mohila College were declared joint champion in the competition while University of South Asia became runner up.

Professor Abu Mohammad Rois, journalists Prosoon Ashish, Abdullah Tuhin, Jhumur Bari and NGO activist Sarwat Binte Islam acted as judges in the competition.
