Dhaka – BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Tuesday said those who kill innocent people by hurling bombs are not only coward, but also the enemies of mankind.
In a statement, Khaleda said, “Terrorists are destroying peace and stability in the world taking the blood of common and innocent people. The existence of human being will be at stake if the global community can’t resist the terrorists.”
The BNP chief issued the statement strongly condemning and protesting the suicide bomb attack on a concert in the northern English city of Manchester.
Khaleda voiced concern that terror attacks are being carried out at different parts of the country one after another. “We would like to say any type of terror activity is a crime against humanity. In fact, the terrorists are the enemies of mankind.”
She said the killing of so many people in a concert of Manchester by a bomb attack is not only a cruel and brutal incident, but also an ominous sign for human being.
Khaleda expressed her deep shock over the incident and prayed for the eternal peace of the souls of those killed in the attack.
She hoped the British government will tackle the situation with patience and ensure proper punishment to the perpetrators after tracking them down.
Twenty-two people, including an eight-year-old girl, have been killed and 59 were injured in a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena, at the end of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande.
