Bangladesh Nationalist Party acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday refuted the ruling party’s blame that late president Ziaur Rahman had wanted to turn Bangladesh into Pakistan by making confederation with it.
Talking to journalists on Zia’s graveside, Fakhrul said that the ruling Awami League made such remarks to divert public attention from the key problem and crisis of the country.
He said Zia was the proclaimer of independence and fought against Pakistan in the Liberation War in 1971 to receive a gallantry award.
Zia was the architect of modern Bangladesh and the one who had restored democracy, he said.
Fakhrul came up with the remarks after the ruling party lawmaker Mahzabin Khaled, also the daughter of sector commander Khaled Mosharraf on Thursday in parliament said that Ziaur Rahman wanted to turn Bangladesh back into Pakistan and conspired to make confederation with Pakistan while he visited Pakistan in 1977.
Fakhrul along with leaders and activists of newly announced full-fledged committee of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal placed wreaths and offered fateha at the grave side of Zia at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the capital.
