Own Correspondent, Dhaka, 29 March 2024: Awami League General Secretary and Minister of Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Quader has commented that after killing Bangabandhu and his family, the murderer Zia-Mushtaq gang destroyed the spirit of Liberation War and democratic values.

He said that the military dictator Ziaur Rahman used the card of religion to strengthen his illegal and unconstitutional power; Religion-based politics prevails. Autocracy Zia sowed the poison of communalism at all levels of the state and society and established ultra-communal groups in politics. Since then, the politics of divisiveness began.

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said these things in a statement on Thursday. In the statement, he condemned and protested the false, fabricated and misleading statements of BNP leaders.

He said that the party's secretary general (Mirza Fakhrul) is lying that the houses and businesses of BNP leaders and workers are being taken over. He made vague and baseless statements without providing any concrete evidence. Rather, we can see that BNP leaders and activists are doing business under the existing regime. No political vendetta is taking place anywhere.

The bridge minister said that after BNP came to power in 2001, millions of Awami League leaders had to leave their homes due to political violence. Awami League leaders and supporters were brutally tortured for the crime of voting by boat. Thousands of women were raped by BNP-Jamaat cadre forces. Twenty-one thousand Awami League leaders and activists were killed across the country.

Awami League General Secretary said, under the undisputed leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the greatest father of the Bengali nation, the Bengali nation gained independence in 1971 through a united armed struggle against the Pakistani invaders. After achieving independence, Bangladesh was led by the father of the nation in the spirit of the Great Liberation War.
