Barrister Mainul Hosein called BNP`s current Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi as `Political Clown` during the one-eleven era.
During the one-eleven, the split process has been started in BNP on the name of rectification. Barrister Mainul Hosein was one of the leading artisans of this process. He was then an advisor to law, justice, and parliamentary affairs. At that time, he and General MA Matin were the main members of the team that was formed in the name of political correctness for the separation of political parties and the removal of the two main leaders (Sheikh Hasina and Begum Khaleda Zia) of two leading political parties.
The then acting secretary general late Khandker Delwar Hossain and the then BNP office secretary Ruhul Kabir Rizvi played a strong role during the one-eleven era when the army-backed caretaker government headed by Fakhruddin Ahmed continued arresting the top leaders of political parties.
Ruhul Kabir Rizvi then said targeting Barrister Mainul Hosein that these people, who have no name and address, are busy to destroy the character of political parties for the implementation of their mission.
After the reaction of Rizvi, Barrister Mainul Hosein said, `Who is Ruhul Kabir Rizvi? People like him are political clowns. What should we say about them?`
Barrister Mainul is notorious for his arrogant political statements and abusive language. In recent times, he humiliated a female journalist on a TV talk show.
