Asked about the United States’ right to criticize democracy and human rights in Bangladesh, which sheltered Bangabandhu’s killer, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said, “The United States speaks for democracy and gives shelter to the killers.

Canada has sheltered Nur, and the murderer Rashed is still in the United States. We have to hear from them all about the rule of law, we have to hear about democracy, we have to hear about justice, that is what amazes me. ”

Highlighting the history of obstruction of justice by issuing ordinances after the assassination of Bangabandhu, the Prime Minister said in the last part, “I took a lot of time. Because in fact I was very sad not to get justice for many years. Anyway, at least I didn’t go down without explaining myself first. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. “
