Remain alert about the use of mosques: PM

Update : 18 Apr 2013, 09:51 AM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina asked everyone, including party leaders and workers, to remain vigilant about the use of mosques and madrassas as bases for terrorist activity.

"You have to remain alert and contact authorities at mosques and madrassas so that anti- liberation forces cannot destroy the sanctity of holy places by using them and their students for subversive acts again," she said referring to the Fatikchhari mayhem.

Sheikh Hasina said this in her introductory speech at a meeting with leaders and workers of the Awami League's Patuakhali district unit at her official residence, Ganobhaban.

The Prime Minister said those who are unleashing violence across the country are allied to anti-liberation forces and they want to bring them back to power.

"They don't believe in the country's independence and sovereignty. They do not know how to create anything, they only they know how to destroy," she said.

AL Presidium Member Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim and Kazi Jafarullah, Joint General Secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, State Minister for Religious Affairs Advocate Shahjahan Mia, State Minister for Water Resources Mahbubur Rahman, AL Information and Research Secretary Advocate Afzal Hossain and former chief whip of the Jatiya Sangsad Abul Hasnat Abdullah were present, among others.

AL Organising Secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim conducted the meeting which belongs to a series of meetings with grassroots-level members of the ruling Awami League, begun two years ago.

The office-bearers of Patuakhali district unit AL, national committee members, lawmakers of the party, administrator of Patuakhali District Council, presidents and general secretaries of upazila, thana, union and municipal units and upazila chairmen and vice-chairmen of the party, mayors and councillors of municipalities, chairmen of the union councils and presidents and general secretaries of the associate and like-minded bodies of the Awami League district unit were also present at the meeting.
