BNP Facebook page fomenting communal hatred: AL claims

 The Awami League (AL) has claimed that the verified Facebook page of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) is fomenting communal hatred and running inflammatory campaigns.

Although the BNP had complained that the AL men attacked a Buddhist family and looted their house in Chattogram's Raozan, the Upazila Buddha Oikya Parishad called it false propaganda, the AL said on its verified Facebook page Thursday, reports UNB.

The BNP has embarked on a multi-faceted propaganda campaign to establish Bidhan Barua, known as the "right-hand man" of Salahuddin Quader Chowdhury, who was sentenced to death for war crimes, politically in Raozan, it added.

Bidhan Barua, a "top terrorist" listed by Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) and police, was released on bail from Lakshmipur district jail on September 11, the AL said.
