Ziaur Rahman united the divided nation. He turned the country into a prosperous Bangladesh from what was called a bottomless basket. He laid the foundation for development.
The party’s secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Alamgir told reporters after paying homage to BNP founder chairman Ziaur Rahman at his tomb in Sher-e-Bangla Nagar on Sunday (May 30) at 9:30 am on the occasion of his 40th death anniversary.
The BNP secretary general said, ‘Ziaur Rahman united the divided nation. He turned the country which was called bottomless basket into a prosperous Bangladesh. He laid the foundation for development. Today we are remembering her, as well as the leader Khaleda Zia who established democracy. I remember those who were martyred in the war of independence in 1971. I am remembering the innumerable leaders and activists who have been killed and disappeared for a long time in the face of Awami Fascism. ‘
Mirza Fakhrul said, ‘Unfortunately for us, this nation fought for a liberal democratic state and social system. The Awami League has very consciously destroyed that liberal democratic state system and started the work of establishing a one-party system in disguise again. The liberal democratic politics that is being planned in this country is being shut down and they are giving birth to communal extremism here today. We think that Awami League has never done any good deed in the interest of this country. They have never done anything good to build this country. It just destroyed. ‘
Fakhrul further said that the whole nation is fighting against fascism today. Not only BNP, today the whole nation is suffering. Our democracy has been deprived, free society has been deprived, free journalism has been deprived. A repressive, repressive regime has been imposed. Everyone has to work together to get out of here. “Let’s call on the whole nation to unite,” he said. We are fighting again to fulfill the aspirations of the liberal democratic state that we fought for in 1971, for a free society.
BNP standing committee members Gayeshwar Chandra Roy, Nazrul Islam Khan, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, Iqbal Hasan Mahmud Tuku, Syed Emran Saleh Prince, the current in-charge of the office, Advocate Masud Ahmed Talukder, International Affairs Secretary, Mir Sharafat Ali Kabir Khan and others were present at this time.
