Awami League will resist the communal forces, he says
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said the BNP which failed in movements against the government is now out to incite communal forces to fish in troubled water ahead of the elections.
"I want to tell Hindu brothers and sisters, you don't have any fear. Sheikh Hasina is with you, Awami League is with you. BNP wants to fish in troubled water by instigating communal forces. We know the evil forces have mounted up by whose instigation," he said.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was addressing a rally in front of the party's Bangabandhu Avenue central office. The ruling party arranged the rally titled "Sampriti Samabesh" (rally for harmony).
Mentioning that AL leaders and workers would stay in the field against communal evil forces, the minister said AL will stay in streets until the venomous teeth of communal forces are broken.
"Awami League will resist the communal forces," he said.
He said those who are spreading the hatred of communalism should not forget that next-door neighbor India has more Muslim population than Bangladesh.
"We will have to think of the life and property of Muslims in neighboring India before pushing minority community to threat here," he mentioned.
