BNP may go for anti-terrorism unity without Jamaat: Hannan Shah


BNP senior leader ASM Hannan Shah on Sunday dropped a broad hint at keeping aside Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami in the interest in forging a national unity to tackle terrorism and militancy.“A unity of people is a must now against militancy. Our chairperson has called for a national unity to protect Bangladesh and restore the image of its citizens. If we face any problem anywhere to forge the unity, we’ll surely remove it prudently,” he said.
Hannan Shah, a BNP standing committee member, came up with the remarks at a discussion arranged by Voice of Democracy, a pro-BNP platform, at the Jatiya Press Club.
He said their party’s main objective is to work out effective programmes and strategies with the united efforts of national leaders to eliminate terrorism by involving people from all walks of life.
The BNP leader alleged that the government is not willing to forge the national unity in fear of losing power. “The government doesn’t want the unity to be formed and terrorism to be suppressed.”
Mentioning that people have accepted their party chief’s call for the unity, he said their party will form the national unity with people to eliminate terrorism and militancy from the country.
The BNP policymaker alleged that militancy has now emerged as a serious problem in the country due to the government’s wrong policy.
Hannan Shah said though the Prime Minister should have called for the national unity she has failed to do so.
He said tackling militancy is not possible by the current ‘unethical and usurper government.
“The country’s people are saying the government has failed to tackle militancy and terror attacks. Even, the Prime Minister’s son after Gulshan attack said their government has failed to check the terror attack. You (govt) should quit immediately as you have failed to run the country and also to tackle terrorism,” the BNP leader said.
