In a press release, the organization said: ‘The incident has become a cause of great concern to us. We have learned that Moniruzzaman Monir requested police assistance as part of due process after the theft incident. But unfortunately, even after 20 days, the trophies have not been recovered and the identity of the thieves has not been identified. Which is disappointing for us.
The statement also said, “We believe this incident is a major threat to the general public order of the country and sends a message of helplessness to artists.” Therefore, I call on the government and the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to give serious consideration to this national issue. We believe that if the recognition given by the government is theft or robbery, it is up to the government to return it. If this issue is not resolved immediately, we will call an organizational strike. Because it is a matter of great passion and pride for each of our members and those associated with the music.
In a statement, the organization demanded the immediate recovery of the trophies and the identification of the culprits and exemplary action.
