May 7 significant for making democracy, secular politics eternal: Nasim

Awami League (AL) Joint General Secretary

AFM Bahauddin Nasim today said May 7, the homecoming day of AL

President and incumbent Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in 2007 during

the state of emergency, is significant for making the country’s

democracy and non-communal and secular politics eternal.

He was addressing, as the chief guest, a clothes and food

distribution ceremony for 1000 low-income families at Rupnagar Model

School ground here.

On behalf of AL’s Dhaka City North unit, its ward number 7 unit

arranged the function.

Nasim said May 7 is a significant day to the Bangalee nation as

Sheikh Hasina returned home en route to London, after receiving

treatments in the United States, defying all obstacles and conspiracy.

The then military backed caretaker government barred Sheikh Hasina

from returning home and death threat was given to Bangabandhu’s

daughter as Fakharuddin and Moeen Uddin clique hatched deep-rooted

conspiracy in that period, he mentioned.

The AL joint general secretary said defying all conspiracy and

obstacles, Sheikh Hasina returned home on May 7 while thousands of

people greeted her at the airport.

So, this day 14 years back was significant for non-communal,

secular and democratic Bangladesh, he said.

Nasim said now the entire world reels under the coronavirus outbreak

and Bangladesh is not beyond it.

Life is the most important thing and at the same time living is

also important, he said, adding that the government as well as the AL

is standing by the people who live from hand to mouth.

“We all will have to stand by people. This is humanitarian works

and this is our politics,” he said.

Pointing to BNP, Nasim said few persons are doing evil politics by

spreading propaganda and rumors even during the pandemic-induced

crisis to misguide the people.

These persons do not communicate and take care of their own workers

during the crisis, then how they will stand by the people, he said.
