the country’s drug problem cannot be resolved by the extrajudicial killings of small-time dealers, he says

People want to be free from the clutches of drugs, and extrajudicial killings cannot be condoned in any way, said Dr Kamal Hossain.

Kamal said the above in a statement released by Gono Forum on Friday. 

He said people want to eradicate the country’s drug problem from the root. However, the extrajudicial killings that have occurred during the “so-called gunfights” in the ongoing drug drives cannot be condoned in any way. 

These drives have become questionable as the government’s ministers have covered for and defended their party’s lawmaker Abdur Rahman Bodi and other drug kingpins, and given the criminals a chance to flee the country, he claimed.

He further said the country’s drug problem cannot be resolved by the extrajudicial killings of small-time dealers. Condemning the killing of Teknaf Municipality councillor Ekramul Haque, he demanded justice for Ekramul and said those who were involved in the killing should be brought to book. 

Dr Kamal Hossain further said no country would be able to successfully eliminate its drug problem through extrajudicial killings.

He urged the government to end the extrajudicial killings under the pretext of gunfights and take action against “real drug dealers” to uproot the country’s drug problem.
