‘Zia will go down in history as a murderer and traitor’

BNP founder Ziaur Rahman will be identified as a murderer and traitor in the pages of history for his activities, said Awami League Joint General Secretary and Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud. He also demanded that a commission be formed to unmask Ziaur Rahman in connection with the murder of Bangabandhu and his family.

He said this while addressing a drawing competition organized by Sheikh Russell National Children and Adolescent Council at Sheikh Russell Roller Skating Complex in the capital on Friday. The painting competition was organized on the occasion of the 57th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu’s youngest son Shaheed Sheikh Russell on October 16.

Hasan Mahmud said, ‘Children and women were not killed even in the desert of Karbala. But on August 15, 1975, children, women and pregnant women were also killed. The killers killed not only Sheikh Russell, but also four-year-old Sukant Babu, 12-year-old Baby Serniabat, 14-year-old Arif Serniabat and pregnant Arju Moni. In fact, the killers were afraid of Bangabandhu’s shadow too. ‘

The information minister said, “It is the duty of the army chief, deputy chief or any army officer to rush to protect the president even if his life is in danger.” And when Ziaur Rahman was informed of the assassination of President Bangabandhu, he said, ‘So what, Vice President is there’. That means he already knew. In an interview with the BBC, Colonel Farooq-Rashid said that after hearing the assassination plan from them, Zia said, “Go ahead”. That is why Zia is not only involved in the assassination of Bangabandhu, but also in the assassination of Sheikh Russell.

Demanding the formation of a commission to try the masterminds behind the assassination of Bangabandhu, Hasan Mahmud said, “I firmly believe that a commission needs to be formed to try the masterminds behind the assassination of Bangabandhu and the Zia-led massacre.” Ziaur Rahman’s mask will be more exposed in it and those who make his team today will be ashamed on that day.

Sheikh Russell National Children and Adolescent Council Secretary General KM, Shahid Ullah presided over the event, the organization’s advisor Tarafdar Mohammad Ruhul Amin, Organizing Secretary Farid Uddin Ahmed Ratan and Md. Alauddin Saju spoke.
