The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Ministry on Sunday suggested the government to carry out a media campaign against militancy by making anti-militant documentaries, short films, advertisements and video clips.


The committee also recommended strengthening surveillance so that Imams of mosques and teachers of religious institutions cannot instigate militancy in their speeches.


The parliamentary watchdog came up with the suggestions at its meeting held at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban with its chairman Tipu Munshi in the chair.


The committee asked the government to formulate anti-militant awareness programmes in coordination of local elite, Imams-teachers, public representatives and non-government organisations.


The meeting was informed that a total of 13,641 new posts have so far been created in the police force following a decision to increase police posts by 50,000 for modernising the force and increasing its capacity.


Committee members Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan, Dr Mozammel Hossain, Shamsul Haque Tuku, Omor Faruk Chowdhury, Faridul Haque Khan, Abul Kalam Azad, Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon, Fakhrul Imam and Kamrun Nahar Chowdhury attended the meeting.


Home Senior Secretary Dr Md Mozammel Haque Khan and Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoque were, among others, present.
