Law Minister Anisul Haque said that lawyers and judges are two children from the same family and said, ‘There may be disagreements sometimes. But it must be remembered that the good relationship between the bar and the bench should not be destroyed. Because countless litigants are staring us (bar and bench) in the face. They should get justice. To deliver justice, we must maintain good relations.’
Stating that around 900 judges have been appointed during the Awami League government, the law minister said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given grants from her own funds for the construction of various court buildings or bar association buildings in the country even though it is not permitted by law.”

But sometimes the conflict between the judge and the lawyer creates uncertainty in the proceedings. Along with this, there is a disruption in the proceedings. It is important to resolve these conflicts. Because a good relationship between both the judge and the lawyer helps ensure justice.’

I say, lawyers and judges are two children of the same family. Sometimes there may be disagreements. Can be persistent. But it must be remembered that the good relationship between the bar and the bench should not be destroyed.

At one point, he encouraged them to join the movement to realize their rights. At that time Bangabandhu was imprisoned by the invading forces apart from brutal torture.
