The High Court today (Feb 8) directed Bangla Academy to immediately allow Adarsha publication to participate in the Amar Ekushey Boi Mela.
However, the court ordered Adarsha not to sell or display three books, about which Bangla Academy raised objections, at its stall in the Boi Mela.
Three books are: "Mediocrityr Sandhane" written by Faham Abdus Salam; "Unnayan Bivram" written by Zia Hasan and "Aprotiroddho Unnayaner Ovabanio Kothamala".
The HC bench of Justice Md Khasruzzaman and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir Lytton issued the order following the hearing on a writ petition filed by Adarsha Prokashoni's proprietor Md Mahbubur Rahman challenging Bangla Academy's decision.
