Awami League (AL) General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the historic March 7 speech of Bangabandhu is the source of inspiration to eliminate the communal evil forces and all conspirators from the country.
He was addressing a discussion arranged by AL marking the historic March 7 at the AL’s Bangabandhu Avenue central office here.
Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina chaired the discussion joining from her official Ganabhaban residence through a videoconferencing.
Quader urged the people to build strong unity imbued with the spirit of March 7 to build a prosperous Bangladesh under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
He also called upon the people to remain alert against communal evil forces who are still hatching conspiracies against the country.
“Conspiracies are still going on likewise the previous periods. March 7 speech is our source of inspirations to root out the communal forces from the society,” he said.
The AL general secretary said the history of the country’s independence and Liberation War was distorted after the assassination of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1975.
The conspirators created barriers in playing the record of the historic March 7 speech of Bangabandhu for long, he said.
“Our many leaders had to die and many others were tortured brutally for playing the March 7 speech,” he said.
Quader said but the perpetrators could not be successful to suppress the speech which gave the guidelines for emancipation of repressed people not only of this soil but also all over the world.
