Moudud wants govt to launch ‘united platform’


BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Sunday urged the government to float a ‘united platform’ with all to resist extremism and terrorism in the country.“A dangerous situation has been created now in the country due to the emergence of militancy and extremism. Our leader (Khaleda) has made a sincere call to the government for forging a national unity to overcome it,” he said.
Speaking at a religious meeting of the Hindu community, he further said, “Let’s create a united platform with the people of all communities, all political parties and civil society organisations, irrespective of party and opinion, to tackle extremism and terrorism.”
The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) arranged the programme at Swamibagh Ashram in the city marking Rath Jatra, 2016 (chariot procession), a major Hindu festival associated with Lord Jagannath.
Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, also urged the government to hold a fair election for establishing a representative government as an effective measure to eliminate extremism. “The fall of militancy is inevitable in a country where a representative and accountable government is in place.”
He claimed that that people of all religions, especially Hindus, had been living a peaceful life when BNP was in power. “BNP doesn’t believe in communalism in its any form. We believe in religious harmony. We want to restore such a situation where you (Hindus) will remain protected.”
Moudud lamented that some people are getting confused about religion and trying to destabilise the country.
He urged all to remain aware so that militant and extremists cannot raise their ugly heads.
