Strongly denouncing the inhuman repression of a woman in Begumganj upazial of Noakhali district, BNP on Monday alleged that a “grand festival of violence against women is being carried out by ruling party men” due to impunity culture.

In a statement, the party’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of those involved in the heinous incident.

“The air and sky have become heavier with the screams of the repressed women and children during the rule of the current ‘midnight government.’

“As there’s no law and order in the country, a festival of torture on women and children by the ruling party men is going on alongside enforced-disappearances, murders, abductions, and extrajudicial killings,” he observed.

A housewife in Begumganj was allegedly molested by some local miscreants at Ward No 9 of Eklashpur union of the upazila last month but the incident came to light after a video of the barbaric incident went viral on the internet.

The miscreants tortured the housewife after undressing her and filmed the video of the incident in Begumganj upazila, sending a shockwave throughout the country.

The BNP leader said violence against women and children has now become an order of the day. “The oppressors of women and children are a stigma in the name of human beings. They’re worse than wild animals.”

He alleged that the inhumane incidents are increasing at an alarming rate due to the misrule and “growing misdeeds” of the current government. “As the perpetrators of atrocities like violence against women and children are not getting proper punishment, such incidents are recurring and the offenders are being encouraged to repeat such incidents.”

Stating that a terrible form of ruthless misrule has engulfed the entire country, Fakhrul said the offenders are taking the law into their own hands.

“People across the country have burst into anger seeing on Facebook the barbaric attack on a woman in Begumganj by the beasts like human beings. 

“The country’s people hope that the offenders will be given unprecedented punishment,” he said.

The BNP leader also conveyed his profound sympathy to the victim and her family members.
