Bagerhat-2 MP Sheikh Sharhan Naser Tonmoy has said his family would keep lights and TV turned off on August 15 to avoid seeing news on Bangabandhu and most of his family members, who were killed on that date in 1975, to prevent grief from overtaking them. 

Sheikh Tonmoy, Bangabandhu’s great-grandson, made the statement on Tuesday night at a discussion organized at the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Hall of Dhaka University on the occasion of National Mourning Day.

He also pointed out that those who now talk about humanity were responsible for heinous incidents like August 15 and August 21. They carried out a series of bomb attacks while Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated 100 bridges.

In reference to the BNP, he likened it to a club, suggesting that factional leaders and conspirators have formed a club to remain inconspicuous to the Awami League. Just like the Gulshan Club, they have established a similar entity named BNP. 

Tonmoy stressed that if their intentions were genuinely for the country's welfare, they would not have displayed excessive enthusiasm at sanctions.

He added that these isolated sanctions cannot hinder the progress of the nation or the Awami League.
