Shoot Jamaat, Shibir rioters Says Shahriar KabirDU Correspondent
Writer Shahriar Kabir on Friday called upon the government to shoot the Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatra Shibir men who would be found running atrocities in the streets.
He made the call at a rally at Shahbagh organised by Ganajagaran Mancha, the youth-led platform campaigning for the capital punishment for the war criminals.
Shahriar, also the executive president of Ekatturer Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee, sought military
intervention in resisting the ongoing countrywide atrocities of Jamaat and Shibir men.
He said that the government should not rely only upon the law enforcers to face the Jamaat and Shibir men.
‘Also the ordinary people, led by the Ganajagaran Mancha, should be involved in fighting against the Jamaat, Shibr and fanatic Hefajat-e-Islam who declared war against the country,’ he said.
Pointing at the Hefajat programme scheduled for December 24 in the capital, Shahriar said Ganajagaran Mancha must strongly resist Hefajat’s entry to the capital.
Ganajagaran Mancha spokesman Imran H Sarkar echoed him regarding the Hefajat programme.
Imran said that banning Jamaat and Shibir was the key to defeating anti-liberation forces.
Rights activist Khushi Kabir termed the execution of Jamaat assistant general Abdul Quader Molla as the first chapter to make the country collaborators-free.
Among others, Sammilita Sangskritik Jote president Nasiruddin Yusuf Bachchu, Martyred intellectual Dr Abdul Alim Chowdhury’s widow Shyamoli Nasrin Chowdhury, Bangladesh Chhatra Maitree president Bappaditya Basu and Bangladesh Chhatra Union president SM Shuvo addressed the rally.
