BNP shocked at cohort’s death penalty: ALNew Age Online
Awami League joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif on Wednesday said the opposition BNP leaders have lost their mental balance and turned dumb after hearing the death penalty of their compeer Quader Mollah on war crimes charges.
‘As the verdict has been handed down to their cohorts, the BNP leaders have become dumbfound and for this, they could not give their reactions to the journalists when they asked for comments,’ he said.
Hanif, also a special assistant to the Prime Minister, made the remarks while addressing an anti-hartal rally organised by Juba League in front of the party’s central office at Bangabandhu avenue, in the capital.
Hanif urged the leaders and activists of Jamaat-Shibir those aged bellow 50, not to get involved in the party politics as it belongs to war criminals. He asked them to rather join the politics of pro-liberation parties.
He said the AL-led grand alliance government would execute the ICT verdicts within its tenure as this was an election pledge of the AL.
Hanif called upon the leaders and activists of AL and its front organisations to stay alert and resist any attempt of BNP-Jamaat men to create anarchy in the country in the name of calling hartal and protesting verdicts.
