Dhaka, April 10: Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque has demanded to pass a law in the parliament to punish those who speak against the history of independence and the spirit of the liberation war.

He said that the opponents of the liberation war should be punished by the state. To give a safe guard to the country, it is necessary to pass a law to punish those who distort the history of the liberation war and tell lies against the spirit of the liberation war.

He made this claim while participating in the discussion on the motion of thanks brought under Rule 147 of the Rules of Procedure brought by the Prime Minister on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the National Parliament on Sunday.

Mozammel Haque said, by the cruel irony of fate, on August 15, 1975, by killing Bangabandhu, the assassins not only killed a man, but not only an independent parliament, but a nation. The killers trampled the hopes and aspirations of the people of Bengal. These events need to be seen. Otherwise we will stumble again and again.

The Minister of Liberation War also said that the killings of August 15, the killing of four national leaders, and the tearing of the Constitution were all attempts to erase the spirit of the Liberation War from this country. After 23 years of exploitation and deprivation, the killers tried to erase the idea that the country was being run on the basis of the four basic principles of democracy, socialism, nationalism and secularism through the liberation war.
