The state has applied to the Appellate Division seeking a stay on the High Court's order to close primary and secondary schools during Ramadan.

A plea was made to the Appellate Division today, Monday (March 11). The hearing will be held in the chamber court today.

Earlier yesterday, Sunday (March 10) at noon, the High Court suspended the decision to keep primary and secondary schools open during Ramadan. A High Court bench of Justice KM Kamrul Quader and Justice Khizir Hayat passed the order. The court passed this order because of a writ petition filed by the parent of a student.

Advocate Mahmuda Khanam heard on behalf of the writ in the court. Deputy Attorney General Sheikh Mo Saifuzzaman heard on behalf of the state.

On February 8, the Ministry of Education announced the decision to keep secondary-level schools open for 15 days during Ramadan by partially revising the list of holidays and curriculum. After that, the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education also informed that classes would continue for 10 days during Ramadan. A student's parent filed a writ in the High Court challenging their decision.
