Zia had no contribution to Liberation War
DHAKA, Nov 27, 2021 (BSS) - Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif today said BNP founder Ziaur Rahman, emerged in the politics after 1975, had no contribution to the county's Liberation War.
He said this while addressing a discussion meeting as chief guest organized by 'Brihattor Kushtia Officers' Kallayan Forum' at Tathaya Bhaban here.
"Independence and liberation war is our pride. Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had to scarify a lot for achieving the county's independence," said Hanif.
He said Bangabandhu was tortured in Pakistan prison but he did not bow down to the Pakistani rulers. After the gruesome killing of Bangabandhu, Ziaur Rahman destroyed history and spirit of the Liberation War in a planned-way, he added.
Hanif said Bangladesh is moving forward under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
State minister for public administration Farhad Hossain said the nation got united during Liberation War under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, but after assassination of Father of the Nation, Zia patronized the anti-liberation forces and destroyed the history of Liberation War. Zia pushed the country as well as the nation backwards, he added.
Information and Broadcasting Secretary Mokbul Hossain said Bangabandhu and Bangladesh are one and unique. Bangabandhu was such a charismatic leader who had been able to unite the whole nation for achieving the Independence, he added.
"Today, Bangladesh is moving ahead under the dynamic leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's worthy daughter Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The people of country are living peacefully," said Mokbul Hossain.
'Brihattor Kushtia Officers' Kallayan Forum' president Engineer Md Anwar Hossan presided over the meeting. Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam and forum's Chief Advisor Md Shahiduzzaman, among other, were present.
