PM Hasina blasts BNP for remarks on 7th March speech

PM Hasina blasts BNP for remarks on 7th March speech

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday blasted BNP leaders for their remarks that they do not get any message of independence from the historic 7th March speech.

Sheikh Hasina said it is normal that they will not understand the essence of the historic speech as its founder Ziaur Rahman killed many Bangalees in Chattorgram on March 25 and 26 in 1971.

“The person, who started the massacre against people, who was going to release arms from the (Pakistani) Swat ship, killed the Father of the Nation, declared himself as the President of the country through grabbing power by violating the Constitution, formed a political party. So, it’s very normal that leaders of the party won’t understand the language and essence of this speech. There’s nothing to be surprised or to be discussed,” she said.

The Prime Minister was addressing a discussion on the historic 7th March Speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Bangladesh Awami League arranged the discussion at its central office at the city’s Bangabandhu Avenue.

Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, joined the event virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.

The Prime Minister said BNP leaders do not find any message of independence from the speech as they cannot yet forget their old habit of flattering Pakistanis.

“This why they (BNP leaders) are still searching for ‘but’ in the speech and don’t get the message of independence. But those who had taken preparations (for the war) rightly understood it. The people of Bangla understood it and they took preparations accordingly,” she said.

“Yes, BNP doesn’t understand it. There is also a reason (behind it),” she said and then mentioned how Ziaur Rahman as a Pakistani army officer participated in genocide against Bangalees.

Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman issued the directive to take preparations for the war with whatever they had.

As per the directive of Father of the Nation, Sangram Parishad men and general people put barricades on the roads in Chattogram on March 25, 1971.

“Pakistani occupation forces fired shots at those who were putting barricades on roads in Chattogram on that day. Ziaur Rahman was a person among those who fired shot at people. Ziaur Rahman as a Pakistan Army officer shot to death many of those who were putting barricades on that day,” she said.

“Not only that, Ziaur Rahman also carried out the killings for two days – March 25 and 26,” she said adding that many freedom fighters of Chattogram know facts.

Sheikh Hasina said then Ziaur Rahman was going to release arms from the Swat ship (of Pakistan). But Sangram Parishad men and general people hindered him to release the arms from the ship and caught him.

AL senior leaders Obaidul Quader, Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, Mahbubul Alam Hanif and AFM Bahauddin Nasim, among others, spoke at the discussion meeting.

Besides, former Vice-Chancellor of Dhaka University Prof Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique, AL leaders AL central leaders Habibur Rahman Siraj, Dr Mostafa Jalal Mohiuddin, Sujit Roy Nandi and Prof Marina Jahan Kabita, AL’s Dhaka South unit president Abu Ahmed Mannafi and its North unit President Sheikh Bazlur Rahman also spoke at the programme.

Earlier, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina unveiled the cover of a book, “Muktir Dak”, on the historic 7th March speech.

Edited by Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique, the book was published by Yeasin Kabir Joy.
