Mirza Fakhrul's call for greater national unity


BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has called for the establishment of a people's government against the present government by building greater national unity.

He said it is a crime not to tell the truth in history. The Awami League works with a specific goal to establish the history they have created. The names of those who have fought for freedom for a long time are not mentioned. Even the names of Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani, Tajuddin Ahmed, Ziaur Rahman are not mentioned.

He was speaking at a virtual discussion on 'The Role of the Historic Expatriate Government and Proposed Republic Day' organized by JSD on Saturday. 

Mirza Fakhrul said that the war of 1971 was not fought by any single person or group. The war of liberation was organized around the aspiration of self-development of the whole nation. But after independence, the Awami League shattered the constitution and established a one-party Bakshal, thwarting the democratic aspirations of the people.

Speaking at the meeting, JSD President ASM Abdur Rob said that a system of partnership-based governance should be introduced by radically reforming state politics based on equality, human dignity and social justice. To this end, the Declaration of Independence is the specific philosophical basis for building the future of Bangladesh. At the meeting, ASM Rabb demanded five points including declaring April 10 or 16 as Republic Day as a memento of the glorious achievements of the Liberation War. 

Mahmudur Rahman Manna, the convener of the Citizens' Unity, said that the great ideology of the Declaration of Independence has been shattered in 50 years and all the dreams of the Liberation War have been shattered. We have to fight unitedly against the dictatorial regime to establish a welfare state.

Former VP of Daksh Nurul Haque Nur said the country is in dire straits. The government has organized the so-called Golden Jubilee, ignoring the legends of the liberation war, to legitimize the illegitimate power. We have to build a mass movement against the present government.

Advocate Chhanwar Hossain Talukder, Sakam Anisur Rahman Khan, Siraj Mia and Tania Rob also addressed the meeting. At the meeting, Shahid Uddin Mahmud Swapan raised a proposal on behalf of JSD.
