Bangladesh Govt shuts down Lakehead Grammar School for patronising militancy

News Hour:

The school had no government approval.

The Education Ministry has ordered the Dhaka district administration to shut down the Lakehead Grammar School for patronising militancy and involvement in ‘anti-liberation’ activities.

In a letter signed by the ministry’s Joint Secretary Salma Jahan, the ministry said the school had not taken approval from the government.

The school, founded in 2006, has several branches in Dhanmondi and Gulshan.

According to the letter, the school was inspiring religious extremism, building extremist organisations, and carrying out activities against the nation and its independence.

Rezwan Harun, one of the patrons of the school, has been missing since he arrived in Dhaka from London a few months back. Law enforcers allege he is involved in financing and abetting militancy.

The Education Ministry, in a report on January 23 this year, directed the law enforcement agencies to bring him to book.
