Dhaka – Awami League general secretary Syed Ashraful Islam on Monday accused the Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal of creating an atmosphere for the assassination Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1975.
Ashraful, also the Public Administration Minster, came up with the remarks while addressing the council session of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of the ruling Awami League party, at Dhaka University Teachers Student Centre.
He also regretted that a leader from JSD is inducted in the cabinet led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Bangladesh could have been a different one in terms of economic and social progress if Bangabandhu was alive until now.
Highlighting the controversial move by JSD in post-liberated Bangladesh, the minister said the organisation tried for revolution adopting scientific socialism.
“Revolution is not mere words, you’ve to work for that,” Ashraful told the student activists asking them to go through the books of real history. He also suggested them to avoid those who tried to create a special situation during the post-independence days.
Syed Ashraf said, they tried to break apart the nation before the return Bangabandhu in Bangladesh from Pakistani prison.
Referring to Information Minister Hasanul Huq Inu, Ashraful said that Awami League might have paid for inducting a minister from among those who tried to create divisions.
The council session of was presided by Chhatra League President Safiur Rahan Shohg while Awami League leader Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Isahq Ali Kahn Panna were among others present at the programme.
Bangladesh’s independence architect Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was assassinated by a group of disgruntled military officers along with most member of his family on the fateful night of August 15, 1975.
His daughters – Sheikh Hasina, now the prime minister, and Sheikh Rehna – survived the attacks since they were in Germany at that time.
