Real conspirators 
will be unmasked 
surely: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has hoped that someone in future will surely find out the real conspirators behind the killings of August 15 and November 3 in 1975. "We may not be able to try these conspirators... we’ll try to do that... history cannot be erased... someone in the future will surely catch these conspirators (of the killings of August 15 and November 3) that [day] will come…this must be done," she said.

The Prime Minister said this yesterday while addressing a discussion organised by Awami League at the city’s Krishibid Institution marking the Jail Killing Day. On this day in 1975, the killers of Bangabandhu stormed into the Dhaka Central Jail in the early hours and assassinated the four national leaders -- Tajuddin Ahmed, Syed Nazrul Islam, Captain Mansur Ali and AHM Quamruzzaman -- who led the Liberation War in the absence of Bangabandhu in 1971 and snatched the victory for the nation. Sheikh Hasina, also the president of Bangladesh Awami League, presided over the discussion. She said the ongoing drive against terrorism, militants, drugs and corruption will continue. “Unjust and injustice will be eliminated from Bangladesh…the people of the country will have an improved socioeconomic status, and they’ll lead a beautiful life."

The premier said the sacrifice of millions of freedom fighters and martyrs cannot go in vain. "It didn’t go in vain, no one will be able to make it futile in future either," PM said. She said razakars, killers, al-badrs, al-shams, killers of 1975 and their companions and patrons will not get the chance to make Bangladesh their den again.
