It is learned that Dr Murad Hasan, who lost the post of State Minister for Information and Broadcasting due to his indecent and unethical remarks on social media, is trying to leave the country.

He booked a ticket to Canada on Thursday night (December 9). He bought a ticket on Wednesday (December 8), according to the airline.

Though at first, he was thinking of taking his family with him, that is not happening as other family members do not have visas.

According to a source in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, the red passport (special passport) that Murad had during his tenure as Minister of State was in the possession of an Information Ministry official but he took it with him through a personal assistant shortly before his resignation. Although he was supposed to submit the red passport after resigning from the state ministry, he did not submit it.

Murad Hasan's mobile phone was contacted for comment but no response was received.

Meanwhile, the process of taking legal action against Murad Hasan has started. Besides, the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has identified 387 links of Murad Hasan's obscene and vulgar remarks on social media including online platforms.

Dr. Murad signed his resignation letter to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting at 12:30 pm on Tuesday (December 6). Later at 3 pm, Mohammad Gias Uddin, Public Relations Officer of the State Minister for Information, submitted his resignation letter to the Cabinet Secretary's Office on his behalf.

Murad Hasan was relieved of the post of Health Secretary of Jamalpur District Awami League.
