Information minister favours commission for in-depth probe

BSS, Dhaka

Terming the demand of formation of a commission for in-depth inquiry into the plot of Bangabandhu killing, information minister Dr Hasan Mahmud yesterday said the demand now has emerged as a ‘demand of time’.

“The in-depth inquiry by an independent commission is very much indispensible to let the future generation about the killers, mastermind and others who had created the plot of the carnage,” he said. The minister said this at a discussion on the National Mourning Day, 2019 organised by ‘Muktijudder Chetonar Sangbadik Forum,’ a platform of pro-liberation journalists, at National Press Club here.

“Names of the Bangabandhu killers, masterminds and connivers should be unmasked for the new generation,” the minister said adding otherwise the new generation would remain in dark about the history.

He agreed with the speakers’ demand for formation of a commission to bring all the culprits of Bangabandhu murder to book saying people of the country want to know the real history behind the scene.

Dhaka University former Vice Chancellor Prof AAMS Arefin Siddique, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Vice Chancellor Prof Kanak Kanti Barua, president of Institution of Engineers’ Bangladesh Abdus Sabur were present as discussants while senior journalist Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury was in the chair.

The Information Minister said the killing of Bangabandhu was not mere “the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman” and rather it was part of a deep conspiracy to foil very existence of Bangladesh as an independent nation.

Dr Hasan said Bangabandhu was killed by the vested quarter comprising local and foreign conspirators who never wanted independent Bangladesh.

Former president of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) Manjurul Ahsan Bulbul, BFUJ former general secretary Omar Faruque, Jatiya Press Club (JPC) general secretary Farida Yeasmin, Dhaka Union of Journalists (DUJ) former general secretaries Azizul Islam Bhuiyan and Quddus Afrrad and DUJ acting president Mozammel Haque, addressed the meeting conducted by DUJ general secretary Sohel Haider Chowdhury.

About the shifting of BNP’s position to celebrate Begum Khaleda Zia’s birthday on August 16 instead of August 15 this year, the information minister said the party (BNP) has changed its position being castigated by the people.

“People are highly criticizing the celebration on the fateful day of the nation. So, they (BNP) have changed the date of the celebration,” he said urging BNP leaders to fix the actual date of birth of Khaleda Zia. “How, a party will move forward if they cannot fix the date of birth of the party chief,” he asked.
