“Jamaat-e-Islami is a party of war criminals. Since BNP has formed an alliance with, and has close connections to Jamaat, it is also a party of collaborators. If BNP believes in the country’s independence and sovereignty, it must sever all ties with Jamaat.”

Joy, the son and ICT adviser to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, made the remarks while speaking at a discussion programme of Shuchinta Foundation at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Dhaka yesterday.

“We have repeatedly expressed out doubt over a fair election under the Awami League rule. HT Imam’sa speech justified our concern”

Addressing a press conference at party’s Nayapaltan headquarters in the capital, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, acting secretary general of BNP said his party standing committee members strongly criticised the government.

“I have always been with you. There are legal matters involved. Let me see what I can do.”

Joy, who advises his mother PM Sheikh Hasina on information and communication technology affairs, yesterday told Chhatra League men to “not get involved in any activity that may defame” the ruling party.
