altPublic Lecture on Constitutionalism:
Dr. Kamal Hossain urges for practice of Rule of Law
 
Eminent Jurist Dr. Kamal Hossain has said the ownership of the State belongs to the People, and the elected representatives are mandated to serve the people in line with the Constitution.
 
 He observed that for establishing rule of law there are requirements of good intentions and consciousness among politicians. Impartiality of the administration is also necessary, he continued; otherwise only law will not serve purposes.  
 
 Regarding impunity for the convicts, he told that this should be practiced very carefully- on a case by case basis; and on a rare circumstance only for ensuring justice. If it is done on a wholesale basis and also on a political consideration then it is tantamount to abuse of the authority, and gross violations of Constitutional provisions.
