Bangladesh Awami League is working to eliminate fanatics, militant and fundamentalist forces from the country, he says

Awami League Joint General Secretary Mahbubul-Alam Hanif MP on Thursday said his party is working to eliminate fanatic, militant and fundamentalist forces from the country.

He said: "We have a thousand-year-old culture. We have jatra, palagan, jari-sari, polli giti. It is a matter of sorrow that we are losing our folk culture. A section of the society is becoming fanatic. Bangladesh Awami League is working to eliminate these fanatics, militant and fundamentalist forces from the country."

He was addressing a rally, as chief guest, at Central Shaheed Minar to resist attacks on temples, idols and properties belonging to people from the Hindu community in the country.

Organized by Gourob '71, a pro-liberation platform, the rally was also addressed by Dhaka University Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mohammad Samad, Dhaka South city unit Awami League president Abu Ahmed Mannafi, Natore district Awami League president Abdul Quddus, MP, former lawmaker Adv Sanjida Khanam, Selim Altaf George, MP, among others.

Terming BNP founder Ziaur Rahman as the ghost of Pakistan, Mahbubul-Alam Hanif said he planted the seed of communalism by grabbing power after killing Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members.

"It is Ziaur Rahman, who had given opportunity first to Jamaat-e-Islami to do politics in Bangladesh. He had allowed notorious war criminal Ghulam Azam to return to Bangladesh and do politics. His wife Khaleda Zia continued his legacy," he added.

Dhaka University Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Mohammad Samad in his speech said Bangabandhu worked relentlessly to protect both Muslim and Hindu communities during 1946 communal violence.

He said: "Bangabandhu worked throughout his life to build a non-communal country. Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib used to cook food for people of all communities."
