Extremists plotting to destabilise Bangladesh: Ministertext_fields
Dhaka: Bangladesh's Minister for Information says extremist militant outfits are conspiring to destabilize the nation.
Murad Hasan was addressing a discussion meeting on 'The Great Victory Day 2020 and Ongoing Politics' at the VIP lounge of the National Press Club in Dhaka.
The outfits, according to him, are plotting to destabilise Bangladesh in a planned way in the name of removing sculptures.
"When the country is marching forward under the leadership of PM Sheikh Hasina and the development of Bangladesh is being acclaimed globally, some religion based businessmen and extremist groups are out to resort to anarchy. The people of the country must foil their evil design," Hasan said.
Also, the minister said the killers of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family on August 15, 1975 should be brought to justice.
As well as pleading for the formation of an independent commission to probe it, he called upon all to uphold the ideals of Bangabandhu and the spirit of the war of liberation of 1971.
