BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday blasted Hefajat-e-Islam Chief Allama Shafi over his recent comment on women. Reflecting on his advice against women's education, Fakhrul said such comments are unwanted, unwelcome and regrettable. "I am stunned and surprised at Hefajat-e-Islam Chief Allama Shafi's comment," said the BNP Secretary General in a statement.

On Friday, Allama Shafi at programme in Chattogram urged parents not to educate their daughters beyond the fourth or fifth grade. Reflecting on it, Fakhrul said, Bangladeshi people will be embarrassed before the international community with such remarks. "Women education is an indispensable matter to eradicate social misdeeds and disparities," he said.

Claiming that women education is a must, he said, "Our country and society will stay far behind from the growing trend of progress if our women are not educated." "There is no conflict between women education and religion,' it reads. Mirza Fakhrul thinks women's development and real empowerment will not be possible to ensure if women are not enlightened with proper education.
