BNP pioneered crossfire, abduction, killing: Hasan Mahmudh



Turning down the comments of BNP leaders on crossfire issue, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said the very formation of BNP was characterized by initiation of the politics of killing and the party pioneered to resort to crossfire, abduction and murder, reports BSS.

“More than 317 people were abducted and killed every year when BNP was in power,” he told reporters while replying to a query of a journalist at his official residence in city’s Minto Road.

Criticizing the comment of BNP leader Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, the information minister said, “Our party does not support any type of extrajudicial killing. But some criminals were found to be engaged in gunfight”.

But the real history is that BNP was founded through the politics of killing, Hasan, also Awami League joint general secretary, said. “Ziaur Rahman killed thousands of army personnel for clearing his way to cling to power. He was also involved in the killing of Bangabandhu,” he added.

The information minister said BNP that came to power under the leadership of Begum Khaleda Zia had started the crossfire. Hence it seems really ludicrous when BNP leaders are fashioned to talk about killing, abduction and crossfire, he said.

Hasan said Bangabandhu’s worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has set an example before the world by extending her total support on behalf of the state to the toiling masses during the Coronavirus epidemic.

The premier has also created a humanitarian instance by giving shelter to about 11 lakh Rohingyas who were forcibly displaced from their own country, he added.
