BNP accuses AL men of repressing women

UNB

BNP senior leader Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan yesterday alleged that ruling party men are repressing women and indulging in various misdeeds across the country with the ‘blessings’ of the government, reports UNB.
“How is it possible to violate a young girl promising her to help get admitted to a college? The offenders couldn’t dare commit such a misdeed without the blessings of the government and administration that control power,” he said.
Speaking at a human chain programme, the BNP leader further said, “I’m forced to say it with a serious concern that Bangladesh has been put under the grasp of evil forces. It’s my question whether are we living in a civilised country or in an African jungle?”
Jatiyatabadi Mohila Dal, BNP’s women wing, arranged the programme in front of the Jatiya Press Club condemning and protesting the violence against two women in Bogra unleashed by ruling party men. The leaders and activists of the organisation registered their protest against the incident wearing black clothes in their heads.
According to media reports, Bogra town Sramik League leader Tufan Sarker with the help of his party cadres abducted a female student from her home and raped her last month.
The ruling party men allegedly beat up the girl and her mother, and shaved their heads as they went to local councillor Rumki’s house seeking justice on Friday. Police arrested Tufan, his wife, mother-in-law, councillor Rumke and some other perpetrators in connection with the incident.

Dr Moyeen, also a BNP standing committee member, asked the government to let people know who pampered Tufan and his associates to commit such heinous crime. “The sources of power of the offenders are guns and terrorism. The country can’t run in this way.”
To get rid of the current situation, the BNP leader urged the government to hold a fair election under a neutral administration quitting power. “I would like to say the government should step down, and arrange a fair election if it has minimum sense of shyness.”
He alleged that repressive acts and all forms of misdeeds have got spread during the rule of the current government as it has destroyed all the state and social institutions.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi alleged the government is regularly arresting journalists and sending them to jail using the section 57 of the ICT act as Sheikh Hasina established one-party rule Baksal in a different form.
He termed a historic incident the release of the full text of the Supreme Court verdict that annulled 16th constitution amendment at a time when the ruling party men established a reign of terror across the country.
The BNP leader said this verdict has created a bit of fresh hope among people to have the rule of law restored in the country.
Speaking at the programme, Mohila Dal president Afroza Abbas urged the government to punish those arrested in connection with the torture of the two Bogra women by shaving their heads the way they did it with the victims.
She also demanded the government ensure the highest punishment for main accused Tufan, his brother and other culprits.
