FFs want body to unmask plotters

Freedom fighters, professionals and civil society members here have favoured formation of a high-powered commission to unveil masks of conspirators at home and abroad behind assassination of Bangabandhu.

They put maximum importance on bringing back fugitive killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for executing court’s verdict against them to stop conspiracies against the country, its people and sovereignty.

 “The anti-liberation forces are still hatching conspiracies to hinder progress when the nation is realising Bangabandhu’s dream of building a Sonar Bangla,” former Commander of Rangpur district unit of Bangladesh Muktijoddha Sangshad (BMS) Mosaddek Hossain Bablu told BSS.

He strongly favoured formation of a commission to probe into assassination of Bangabandhu to find out masterminds behind the carnage and make investigation report public so that the nation and world as a whole could know real history.

 “Assassination of Bangabandhu and most of his family members was a deep-rooted conspiracy of the defeated anti-liberation forces of 1971 to reverse independence, sovereignty and spirit of the War of Liberation,” Bablu added.

Former Kurigram district unit Commander of BMS Sirajul Islam Tuku said common people were stunned on August 15 in 1975 listening to radio broadcasting assassination of Bangabandhu and most of his family members by some unruly army men.  “The killers of Bangabandhu and their local and alien conspirators wanted to reverse our hard-earned independence that we achieved by defeating the Pakistani Army and winning the War of Liberation,” he said.

Thought trial of the killers of Bangabandhu was completed and some of the killers were executed, but some others are still absconding and masterminds behind the assassination remaining unidentified, he said.

“Formation of a high-powered commission has become a demand of the time to investigate into assassination of Bangabandhu, the report should be made public and all masterminds and conspirators must be exposed to justice,” Tuku added.
