The Editors' Council (Sampadak Parishad) has postponed Saturday's human chain, which was called denouncing the passage of the Digital Security Bill 2018.

The decision has been taken in response to a request made by Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu.

Earlier on Thursday, the minister sent a letter to the platform leaders requesting postponement of the human chain and proposing further talks on the issue.

In a press statement, Mahfuz Anam, general secretary of the Parishad, expressed concern over the passage of the Digital Security Bill saying it is a serious blow to media freedom.
