BNP says Azmi’s opinion ‘personal’

New Age Online

Bangladesh Nationalist Party does not take cognizance of the recent remarks of Abdullahil Amaan Azmi, son of late former Jamaat chief Ghulam Azam, terming them as his personal opinion.
In a Facebook comment on Thursday, Azmi threw an open challenge to BNP saying that the party will never return to power without the support of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami
‘This is my open challenge,’ Azmi wrote on his Facebook page six days after the death of his father, who was convicted for war crimes committed during the war of independence in 1971.
Ghulam Azam died last week at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and was buried at a family graveyard on Saturday.
His funeral was noticeably avoided by almost all major BNP leaders.
Azmi termed BNP leaders as ungrateful and said their ‘shyness’ in mourning the death of Ghulam Azam was ‘disappointing.’
When his attention was drawn at a press conference at the at Naya Paltan office in the morning on this issue, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said this is only Azmi’s personal opinion.
‘So far we know that he is not involved in Jamaat politics. Jamaat did not give reaction in this regard,’ he said.
Fakhrul also insisted that BNP did not cut ties with its key political ally Jamaat.
