BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday accused the government of crimes against humanity including enforced disappearance, killing and abduction.
“The monster government has destroyed all the achievements of Bangladesh. Carrying out enforced disappearance is treated as crimes against humanity. I am accusing the present government of the crimes,” he said while addressing a discussion meeting at Jatiya Press Club.He said it is useless to negotiate with the government to get back the BNP leaders who became the victims of enforced disappearance.
“We have given advertisements to know their whereabouts. We raised our voice at home and abroad but we received no benefit. Which country is this and which type of democracy is being practiced where the state cannot give whereabouts of our boys,” he exclaimed.
Referring to seven killings in Narayanganj, Fakhrul said the incident proved that the government is using the law enforcing agencies to cling to power.
He said Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and DB police in some case were involved in killing and enforced disappearance of his party leaders and activists.
The BNP leader reiterated that the over 300 party leaders and activists were killed and 65 were the victims of enforced disappearance and said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has to be accountable for these matters.
He called upon the people to take to the street and resist the government and force them to hold a free and fair poll under non-partisan government.
Singapore unit of BNP organised the meeting with its president Abdul Quader in the chair. The meeting was also addressed, among other, by BNP leaders Nazrul Islam Khan, Asaduzzaman Ripon, and Shirin Sultana.
The organisation handed over cheques of Tk 20,000 to each of 20 families whose members were either killed or made victims of enforced disappearance. – Staff Reporter
