Home minister trashes BNP allegation of arrests

UNB

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan yesterday turned down BNP's allegation of arresting its leaders and activists arbitrarily, saying members of law enforcement agencies do not arrest any innocent person, reports UNB. He came up with the remarks while replying to a query from reporters after addressing the triennial conference of Bangladesh Chhatra Jubo Oikya Parishad at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) auditorium in the city.

The Oikya Parishad is a wing of Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Oikya Parishad. The Home Minister urged BNP to prove it that its arrested leaders and activists are not offenders. "We have evidence of where they do what. Even we've got video footage in this regard," he said.

Replying to another question about the arrest of Mozammel Haque Chowdhury, secretary general of Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity (BJKS), a passengers' welfare platform, he said law enforcers are looking into the case filed against him.

“There’s nothing to be worried. He won’t face any problem if his involvement is not found during investigation,” Asaduzzaman added.

Earlier, addressing the function, the Home Minister said religion is for individual but the state is for all. “Everyone here will stay together and perform their respective religious rituals.”

No one can thwart development of Bangladesh, which has been built on a non-communal spirit, he said. “The struggle for establishing equal rights and equal status for all will continue,” he added.

Social Welfare Minister Rashed Khan Menon also addressed the function.
