BCL demonstrates against extremism, terrorism

Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Thursday demonstrated protesting against extremist and terrorist activities in the country.

The procession started from Palashi at 3:30pm and later a rally was held at Raju sculpture premises on the Dhaka University campus.

Hundreds of leaders and activists of BCL participated in the protest.

Warning those opposing setting up of Bangabandhu’s sculpture, BCL central President Al-Nahean Khan Joy, said: “These people won’t find any way to escape if we come out on the streets. We’ll give a fitting reply if anyone shows the audacity to oppose Bangabandhu’s sculpture again.”

Saddam Hussein, general secretary of BCL’s Dhaka University unit, said: “Today we can see the arrogance of those who were defeated in 1971. We want to say it clearly, we have got four national principles, it’s not just Chhatra League alone.”

He warned that the students are ready to put up a strong resistance against those who want to undermine these four policies.

BCL central General Secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee said that those who want to spread the seeds of communalism in this country will be considered as traitors.

On November 13, senior Naeb-e-Amir Mufti Syed Mohammad Faizul Karim of the Islami Andolon Bangladesh and Mamunul Haque, acting secretary-general of the Bangladesh Khilafat Majlish, opposed setting up of a sculpture of the country’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in the capital.
