Murad Hassan has resigned as state minister for information and broadcasting following the instruction of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for his offensive and indecent remarks.

The under-fire junior minister submitted his resignation letter to the Prime Minister on Tuesday citing ‘personal reasons’ for quitting his job.

Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud talked to reporters about this at the Secretariat.

He said both the government and Awami League are feeling embarrassed with the indecent remarks of Murad Hassan.

“We've noticed some changes in Murad over the past few days and his recent remarks embarrassed both the government and the party. That's why the Prime Minister has asked him to quit,” he said.

Replying to a question, the minister said Murad is the Health Affairs Secretary of Jamalpur district unit Awami League and they will decide whether Murad will remain there in his post or not.
