Canada court observation AL’s ploy: BNP


Dhaka – The BNP sees Canadian court observation terming the party as a terrorist organization as a part of “government conspiracy.”
“A drama has been staged by providing wrong information to Canadian immigration department. The matter of terming the Canadian Federal court observation terming the BNP as a terrorist organization was a part of the conspiratorial drama of the government,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.He was speaking at a press conference at party central office at Naya Paltan in the city following publication of a news story that Canadian Federal Court described the BNP as a terrorist organization.
The BNP leader said they did it aiming at creating smoke screen in the minds of people ahead of the elections.
BNP vice chairman Maj (Retd) Hafizuddin Ahmed claimed that the Canadian prosecutor described both the ruling Awami League and the BNP as terrorist organizations.
“It is meaningless to accuse the BNP only. If someone believes that the BNP is a terrorist organization, he has also to believe that the AL also a terrorist organization,” he said.
Asked whether the BNP would file any appeal against the observation, Rizvi said party’s senior leaders would take decision in this regard.
Referring to a part of the court observation, the BNP leader expressed his surprise that how an activist of Secchasebok Dal, the volunteer organisaiotn of the BNP, reportedly applied for political asylum could term the BNP as terrorist organization.
A BNP leader seeking political asylum cannot term the party as a terrorist organization. Rather he is supposed to focus on the adversive political situation in Bangladesh and express his apprehension to be a victim of enforced disappearance, he observed.
“It proved that it is matter of staged drama. They provided wrong information of a staged drama and forwarded to the court,” he said.
Rizvi alleged that the news was released through an online news portal owned what he said by a former Chhatra League leader Shaogat Ali Sagor.
“They are creating propaganda and hatching conspiracy against it staying in Canada,” he alleged.
He further alleged that though the verdict was given on January 25, a section of pro-government media carried out it.
