Ask Tarique to hold his tongue, Hasina tells Khaleda

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday issued a strong warning to Tarique Rahman for his remarks about Bangabandhu and advised BNP chief Khaleda Zia to ask her son to hold his tongue.
“I would like to tell the BNP chief, ask your spoiled son to hold his tongue,” the Prime Minister said while addressing a discussion meeting at Bangladesh Krishibid Institution.
Awami League organised the discussion marking the Victory Day with party presidium member and deputy leader of the House Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury in the chair.
Hasina, also the President of the Awami League, said this in response to BNP senior vice president Tarique Rahman’s remarks at a programme in London that Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a ‘great Razakar’.Without mentioning Tarique’s name, Hasina said people across the world, let alone those of Bangladesh, will not believe what he is uttering.
“He’s uttering heinous words. People won’t tolerate this…this can’t be tolerated.” The Prime Minister said he is uttering indecent words constantly from London.
“He’s deliberately distorting history to confuse people because Zia started this distortion, Khaleda Zia continued that and their son following the same footsteps,” she said.
Hasina said Tarique making a terrible blunder as he is ignorant. “Had he been educated, had he read history, then he could have told the truth,” she said.
“…the people of Bangladesh know it very well how to teach a beast a good lesson. The human like animal should get its due lesson and the people of the country will do that Inshallah.”
Hasina said Tarique in his recent speeches talked like Yahya. “One will finds the similarity if he or she goes through Yahya’s speeches of March in 1971.” Hasina attributed these heinous utterances by Tarique to war criminals’ trial.
AL senior leaders Amir Hossain Amu, Tofail Ahmed, Suranjit Sengupta, Matia Chowdhury, Seikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, Dr Dipu Moni, Ahmed Hossain, AFM Bahauddin Nasim and advocate Kamrul Islam also spoke at the meeting.
Pointing at Tarique and BNP’s ‘involvement’ in the August-21 grenade attacks on an AL rally at Bangabandhu Avenue, the Prime Minister said their hands are stained with Ivy Rahman and many other people’s blood.
“Like the trial of war criminals Inshallah the trial of this killing will take place on Bangladesh’s soil…the killers will surely be punished,” she asserted.
Recalling Ziaur Rahman’s role in rehabilitating the war criminals in the country, the Awami League chief said it was the nature of the BNP to help the war criminals as its founder Zia had stopped their trial.
Hasina said BNP always claims Zia declared the country’s independence. “Had it been true why he stopped the trial of war criminals, why he released the 22,000 war criminals from jail,” she asked.
The AL chief said that Zia put anti-liberation forces in power and Shah Aziz who had vehemently opposed the country’s independence was among them.
Violating all the protocol, the PM said, Khaleda Zia while in power (as PM) sent a condolence message after the death of retired army officer Zanzua. “How deep the relation was …can you imagine?”
Hasina said her government has started the trial of the war criminals and it is implementing the verdicts one after another, and BNP cannot save them. – UNB
