Hasan urges Khaleda to refrain from politics of arson attack


DHAKA, Dec 25, 2017 (BSS) -Awami League Publicity and Publication Secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud today urged BNP Chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia to refrain from terrorist activities and arson attacks in the name of anti-government movement.

“Don’t try to carry out any arson attack in the name of movement . . . People won’t give way right now, if you (BNP) do so”, Hasan said while speaking at a “Victory Day” discussion organized by Bangladesh Awami Hawkers League (BAHL) at Jatiya Press Club here.

Hasan, a former environment and forest minister, accused Begum Khaleda Zia of doing mockery with the freedom fighters in a public meeting.

“You gave the national flag to the cars of those who did not want an independent Bangladesh and worked for Pakistan during the 1971 Liberation War”, he mentioned.

The AL leader warned of resisting any form of violent activities with the help of people and pro-liberation forces in future.

BAHL President presided over the discussion. Navana Akhter, MP, former Vice-Chancellor of Comilla University Dr Golum Mawla and BAHL General Secretary Jahed Ali, among others, also spoke.
