DHAKA, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen today warned against any attempt to take undue favours or privileges using the name of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu, urging all believing in the Bangabandhu's ideology to remain alert against the wrongdoers.

If anyone is found involved with such acts, the Bangabandhu Foundation will sever relations with him or her, Momen, also president of Bangabandhu Foundation, told a discussion at the Public Library's Osmani Memorial auditorium here.

As part of the continuous programmes to celebrate the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the architect of independent Bangladesh, the Bangabandhu Foundation arranged the discussion.
