Stay alert against terror acts: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday urged all to remain vigilant and instantly inform law enforcement agencies of any suspicious terror and militant activity in their respective localities. "I would like to urge the people of the country to remain alert and inform the law enforcement agencies instantly if there's any abnormal activity," she said in Parliament strongly condemning the Sri Lanka terror attacks, before her question-answer session in the House.

The Prime Minister also called upon people to refrain from such terror and militant activities. "I've no word to condemn such terror and militant attacks," she said, adding that 327 people have so far been killed in the recent series of bomb blasts in Sri Lanka. Sheikh Hasina said some 40 children, including Zayan Chowdhury, a grandson of Awami League presidium member and former health minister Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, were killed in the terror attacks.

"I don't know what they (terrorists) want to achieve through killing innocent people like this. Children are innocent. So, why do they lose their lives?" she said, adding that terrorism and militancy can never bring welfare for the mankind. Noting that Feni madrasa girl Nusrat Jahan Rafi fell victim to manmade terrorism, she said such brutal activities are very harmful to human beings. She prayed for salvation of the departed soul of Zayan and others who were killed in the brutal attacks carried out on Easter Sunday.

Meanwhile, she urged the UN to play its role in sending back over one million Myanmar Rohingyas living in Bangladesh to their homeland in Myanmar. "They've to be back to their homeland, you can help us how they can be taken back," she said when visiting three top UN officials met her at her Sangsad Bhaban office.
