Dhaka The chief justice, Mohammad Ruhul Amin, has asked the government to ensure security of all the judges. He was speaking at a function commemorating the death of two senior assistant judges of Jhalakati on Dhaka district judge's court compound on Tuesday.

Later, he unveiled the plaque of Jagannath-Sohel Memorial auditorium. Mohammad Sohel Ahmed and Jagannath Pandey, assistant judges, were killed in JMB bomb attack at Jhalakati on November 14, 2005.

Recalling the killing Justice Amin said Islam was the religion of peace. The Qur'an prescribes severe punishment for the troublemakers. 'Those indulge in terrorism in the name of religion are enemy of the humanity,' he said. The law adviser, AF Hassan Ariff, present at the function said the responsibility of the judges was to protect the rights of the people.

Expectation of the people is now high in view of separation of the judiciary. Organised by the Bangladesh Judicial Service Association the function was addressed among others by the president of Dhaka District Bar Association, Fakir Delwar Hossain, and the registrar of the Supreme Court, Iftekhar Ahmed. District Judge AKM Ishtiaque Hussain presided.
