BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul yesterday said if voted to power, the BNP would hold trials of those involved in enforced disappearances on charge of crimes against humanity.
“The crimes perpetuated by those in 1971 during the war of liberation and undergoing trial for crime against humanity are equal to those who are now committing enforced disappearances and killings,” he said.The BNP leader was addressing a discussion meeting in memory of two Chhatra Dal leaders, alleged victims of enforced disappearances, Mahbub Hasan Sabuj and Kazi Farhad Hossain.
He warned that no government could sustain by resorting to repression, killings and enforced disappearances.
Fakhrul said the government has to be pulled down to establish pro-people government and to pay for the deeds of those engaged in crimes against humanity.
He said that 310 persons were killed and 65 were the victims of enforced disappearances in three months before the January 5 elections.
Sabujbagh Thana Chhatra Dal organised the meeting with general secretary Omar Faruq in the chair.
Shahiduddin Chowdhury Annie, Sultan Salahuddin Tuku, Abdul Quader Bhuiyan Jwel and JCD president Razib Ahsan, among others, also addressed the meeting.
