Dhaka – The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on
Saturday protested and condemned the police restriction to hold a mass
ritual to pay respect to the souls of those Hindus who died during the
war of liberation in 1971.
BNP joint secretary general Advocate Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed made the
protest and condemnation at a press conference at party’s headquarters
at Naya Paltan in the city.
He said followers of any religion never were safe during any
government of the Awami League and the religious functions were not
held peacefully.
“This government speaks about secularism but no people believe in
religion got safety from them. They vandalized and destroyed worships
of different religions including Ramna Kali Mandir. People did not
forget it,” he said.
The BNP leader also accused the ruling Awami League of establishing
control over religious community and people of different professions.
He said the BNP-led 18-party alliance wants to ensure safety and
security of people irrespective of religion and cast.
Rizvi demanded immediately arrest of the killers of Natore Juba Dal
leader Abul Basher and provide them exemplary punishment.
Basher was killed allegedly by ruling party goons on Friday evening. –
