Unity among people urged to thwart extremists’ attack
Politicians on Wednesday urged the general people to get united and resist evil extremist forces in the country.
They also urged the citizens to forge a grand national unity like one that was built during Bangladesh’s War of Independence in 1971.
National Awami Party faction led by Mozzafar Ahmed, a partner of the Awami League-led alliance, organised a discussion at the National Press Club auditorium to mark the party’s 59th founding anniversary where the call was made.
Mohammad Nasim, the presidium member of Awami League and also a spokesman of the alliance, said that the ruling party would curb the extremists politically with the help of general people.
Mujahidul Islam Selim, the president of Communist Party of Bangladesh, said that the country sank into a grave crisis after two deadly attacks.
He called on the government to take steps for creating people’s resistance against the radical forces.
He urged the BNP leaders to join in the movements, abandoning Jamaat-e- Islami, the sectarian forces, immediately.
Selim criticised the government for deviating from the ideals of the War of Independence of 1971, keeping Islam as the state religion in the constitution.
