Information Minister Hasan Mahmud has said publishing fictional reports in name of research organization is similar to spreading rumours.
The Minister came up with the comment while talking to reporter at his official residence in the capital on Saturday noon.
He said, “Many new research organisations sprout whenever the country falls in a disaster or people fall in danger.”
Hasan Mahmud said the organizations are not seen other times and do not conduct any research. They make fictional report to criticize the government and handed over weapons of criticism to oppositions’ hands. Publishing such reports is similar to spreading rumour. I hope all will abstain from the criminal offence like spreading rumour.
