Hefazat mayhem crosses all levels of tolerance: Quader
Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said continuous mayhem carried out in different parts of the country by extreme communal force Hefazat-e-Islam has crossed all levels of tolerance.
While briefing a press conference at his official residence he said by preparing a list of instigators of terrorism, anarchy and communal forces, those would be dealt with politically.
Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, said there is a limit to the patience and tolerance of the country’s people and the exceeding of limit will bring a dire consequence.
The people of Bangladesh are religious but they do not support any fanaticism, the AL general secretary said.
“Do not play with fire. If you play with fire, you will burn your hands in the fire,” he added.
Quader said, those involved in arson attacks will be identified and legal actions will be taken against them.
BNP-Jamaat tried to grab the state power by creating anarchy in the country with arson terrorism in 2013-14, he reminded.
The AL general secretary called upon the pro-liberation forces to get united under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to resist the evil forces and defeat them at any cost.
About plying of public transport amid the ongoing countrywide lockdown, he said the government took the decision to allow plying of public transport in divisional cities, including Dhaka, considering the public interest.
Some people have been spreading propaganda and misleading information about resumption of long distance bus service, but it is not true at all, Quader added.
