DHAKA, Aug 23, 2016 (BSS)- Minister for Liberation War affairs AKM Mozammel Haque today said that the state would be freed from an age-old stigma by banning the politics of Jamaat soon.
"Besides, all the properties of Jamaat would be confiscated for
distribution among the families of the martyred freedom fighters," he said.
The minister said this while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion organised by Sher-e-Bangla Samajik Sangskritik Foundation at the Seminar Hall of the Central Public Library at Shahbag marking the National Mourning Day commemorating the 41st anniversary of martyrdom of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Adviser of the Foundation Principal Md Sujaul Karim Babul presided over the discussion, also addressed, among others, by Poet Kazi Rosy, MP.
Informing his audience that the Truth Commission would be constituted for the sake of trial of all the killings committed after 1975 in the country including that of the militant attacks, Mozammel Haque said, "No killer would be spared. Trial in all the killing cases would be held."
"The defeated forces of independence have been unleashing militant attacks to jeopardise the development activities of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government. But, the government is determined to eliminate the militants," he said, adding that militancy would be dealt with iron hand and in that case, the present government has adopted a 'zero tolerance' policy.
The Liberation War Affairs Minister called upon the forces loyal to
independence to rally round Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to strengthen her hands for the sake of continuation of the development projects.
"The days are not far away when the name of Bangladesh will be in the serial (list) of the developed nations," Mozammel Haque added.
