Bangabandhu’s name being abused for plundering: Dr Kamal

Bangabandhu’s name being abused for plundering: Dr Kamal

Gonoforum President Dr Kamal Hossain yesterday said those making their own fortunes depriving people of their ownership of the country and voting rights using the name and portraits of Bangabandhu are committing the ‘most grievous crime’.

 “They (AL) are using the name and portraits of Bangabandhu, but indulging in acts contrary to his ideals. I think it’s the most grievous crime to work against Bangabandhu’s ideal and dreams using his name,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion, Dr Kamal further said, “Instead of exercising people’s power in protecting their interests, they (AL) are making their own gains showing his photos and using his name. It’s completely contrary to Bangabandhu’s dreams. So, we should make people understand what Bangabandhu’s real dreams were. Then, they’ll put up a resistance against the abuse.”

Gonoforum arranged the discussion at the Jatiya Press Club on the occasion of National Mourning day commemorating the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Dr Kamal, a close associate of Bangabandhu, said the Father of the Nation had struggled throughout his life for establishing pure democracy and making people owners of the country.

 “If anyone thinks the country’s power and ownership belong to an individual and a party it will be tantamount to disrespecting Bangabandhu and defying his instruction. Because, he made people owners of the country through the constitution signed by him,” the Gonoforum chief said.

He said Bangabandhu even could not imagine an autocratic regime would rule Bangladesh. “Those who want to deprive people of their ownership of the country deviating from Bangabandhu’s dreams are bound to fail.”

Dr Kamal said those who are now exercising power, even at the grassroots level, are not elected with people’s votes. “They’re making their own fortunes instead of protecting people’s interests. They’re depriving people of their rights and power.”
