PM: BD will have no cohort of defeated forces

Update : 17 Dec 2015, 08:09 PM

Hinting that Khaleda Zia will one day be tried for patronising war criminals, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday said there would be no existence of the cohorts of the defeated forces in Bangladesh.

“It hurts us that the cohorts of anti-liberation forces still dream of Pakistan despite living in Bangladesh. They have not yet forgotten their ‘Pyaare Pakistan’. But we have to force them to do so.”

She said this at a discussion at Krishibid Institution auditorium marking the 44th anniversary of Victory against the Pakistani occupation forces in 1971. 

Alleging that Ziaur Rahman had first patronised the war criminals and rehabilitated them in state power, Hasina said Khaleda followed the path of her husband after assuming power and handed over the national flag stained with the blood of millions of martyrs to those war criminals by making them ministers.

She also urged all who believe in the spirit of the Liberation War and those who respect the verdicts of the higher court to always keep in mind that Ziaur Rahman and HM Ershad can never claim as ex-Presidents as higher court declared their power capture illegal.

Referring to the allegations of the many BNP men over their cases, Hasina said such cases were filed against those who burned people to death, destroyed public property alongside their order givers and patrons.
