BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today alleged that the government has divided the state system through politicization.
“If you go to court, you won’t get justice. If you go to law enforcers, you won’t get security, as first you will be asked whether you belong to BNP or Awami League. If you are with BNP, then you won’t get any cooperation. Rather, they will file a case against you,” he said.
Speaking at a discussion, he said three leaders of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal’s Dhaka south city unit went to a police station to lodge a complaint as they came under attack while returning home at night, but they were implicated in a case instead.
“The government has divided the entire nation in the last 12/15 years. You won’t find any place where there is no division based on political identity,” Fakhrul said.
He bemoaned that committees of mosques, schools, madrasas, colleges, universities and other institutions are divided. “This division will never help any nation move forward. A nation can be taken forward through unity which was done by President Ziaur Rahman in 1975,” the BNP leader said.
Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Foundation arranged the programme at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity (DRU) in memory of Gazi Mazharul Anwar, a member of BNP Chairperson’s Advisory Council, who died on September 4 last.
Fakhrul said the political sphere in Bangladesh has been ruined while the political structure has collapsed due to lack of a credible election and a truly representative parliament.
He called upon people from all walks of life to come forward, to protect the country and create a democratic atmosphere for the future generations.
Recalling the contributions of Gazi Mazharul Anwar, Fakhrul described him as a lighthouse. “We’re inspired by his songs and his works.”
BNP standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, chairman of the foundation, highlighted the colorful life and works of late Gazi Mazharul Anwar.
