NETRAKONA, Aug 31, 2019 (BSS) – State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Ashraf Ali Khan Khasru today said General Ziaur Rahman was directly involved in the “August 15 carnage” and for this reason Zia saved the killers of Bangabandhu through indemnity ordinance and rewarded them by giving jobs in foreign missions.
“It is now clear that a group of misguided army officers led by Ziaur Rahman assassinated Bangabandhu and most of his family members aimed at rehabilitating anti-liberation forces,” he said, adding that for this reason, Zia protected the self-confessed killers of Bangabandhu through indemnity ordinance.
“Zia also appointed renowned Razaker Shah Azizur Rahman as prime minister of the country to rehabilitate the killers of Bangabandhu,” he told a discussion on “National Mourning Day” at the public hall here.
Awami League (AL), Netrakona district unit, organized the discussion marking the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and National Morning Day.
