Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said Bangladesh will send its cricket team to any touring country in the future after properly examining and reviewing security measures there.

"In the future, whenever we send our cricket team, we will do so after examining and reviewing the security measures there," she said.

Sheikh Hasina said this while inaugurating the four-lane second Kanchpur Bridge on the Shitalakkhya river, four-lane flyover at Bhulta and a railway overpass at Latifpur on the Dhaka-Sylhet highway through videoconferencing from her official residence Ganobhaban on Saturday.

She also said Bangladesh always ensures high security whenever any team of any cricket-playing nation comes here.

"We ensure their appropriate security and we will always do that," she added.

The prime minister came up with the view as some of Bangladesh national cricket team players narrowly escaped terror attacks on mosques at Christchurch that left 49 mosque-goers dead.

"Our cricketers were supposed to go to that mosque. They were almost there but a wounded woman did not let them to enter and that is how they escaped," she said.

Condemning the hated, terrorist and militant attacks in New Zealand, the prime minister said there is nothing more heinous than killing people while they are performing their prayers.

"I hope the world community will not only condemn this incident, but also take steps to eliminate militancy and terrorism forever."

The premier said she always believes that militants and terrorists have no religion, country or nation.

"They are just terrorists, and actions have to be taken against them considering them as terrorists," she said.

"Militancy and terrorism can never bring any good to anyone," the prime minister added.

Talking about religious liberty in Bangladesh, she said this is the right of all people as the country has properly established this religious right.

"The people of all religions can perform their respective rituals here freely," Sheikh Hasina said.

Describing New Zealand as a peaceful country, she said that the attacks were dreadful incidents.
