General Zia nurtured communalism: Inu

Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu today said General Ziaur Rahman had nurtured poison of communalism by patronizing anti-liberation forces.

Describing "BNP as a poisonous tree", he said, "BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia is still continuing the trend of communal politics as she is hatching conspiracy to foil trial of war criminals."

BNP chairperson is now a threat to democracy as she is patronizing the militants and terrorists, Inu commented.

The information minister was talking to journalists after a meeting with leaders and workers of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal at Kushtia circuit house.

Inu, also President of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal, said a vested quarter had tried to make Bangladesh a failed state like Pakistan through protecting and patronizing killers of four national leaders.
