He claimed this was the reason why government did not let them hold procession for World Human Rights Day

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has claimed that the government is violating human rights of people all over Bangladesh; therefore hindering them from observing World Human Rights Day.

He made the remarks at the BNP headquarter in Dhaka on Tuesday after failing to arrange a procession to observe World Human Rights Day. 

Assistant Deputy Commissioner (Motijheel Zone) Enamul Haque Mithu of Dhaka metropolitan police said BNP had no permission to hold rallies or processions and that was why police did not allow them to bring out a procession.

Mirza Fakhrul said: "Human rights violation has become prevalent everywhere in the country, and the government is doing this only to stay in power."

"The reason why the government has not raised its voice against Myanmar for violating the human rights of Rohingyas is because it is violating human rights in its own territory."

"On the other hand, the Gambia has filed a case with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Myanmar of human rights violation." Fakhrul said.

"The most serious breach of human rights is destroying an acceptable system of general election in a country. However, general people will not allow autocracy." he said.

Mirza Fakhrul then demanded the release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and a reform of election commission to hold a fair general election.
