Taskforce formed to supervise Ekushey book fair

A six-member taskforce was formed to oversee the ongoing month-long Amar Ekushey Book Fair on Saturday.


The committee will comprise one person each from Bangla Academy, Cultural Affairs Ministry, Copyright Office Bangladesh and Police and two from publishing houses.


The committee will also inspect whether any banned or pirated copies of book or other things that oppose the spirit of Liberation War, Independence and social values and hurt the religious sentiment, are being sold or not.


No harmful books or things can be allowed to sell as per the policy of the fair. "If any stall violates the policy, legal actions will be taken against it," book fair organizing committee member-secretary Dr Jalal Ahmed said BSS.
