“He who declared the independence of the country, fought the liberation war, is being diminished by lying”. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said this for Ziaur Rahman on pretext of the speech of Bangabandhu’s killer Mazed.
He was delivering speech on Sunday at a virtual memorial meeting on the occasion of 51st birth anniversary of sports organizer late Arafat Rahman Koko organized by Bangladesh Sports Development Council.
Mirza Fakhrul said, basically the chemistry of Awami League is the chemistry of partisan politics. There is nothing for them to practice about impartiality or preferring the efficiency. As a result they have covered the country by partisan politics. It is their ideology and policy. They had established one party politics in the country in 1975. But we have not forgotten those. Truth cannot be covered so easily.
About Arafat Rahman Koko he said, Koko worked successfully taking sports as sports keeping himself out of politics. He made the base of today’s cricket. But it is so sad that we forget those very easily.
The program presided by Bangladesh Sports Development Council president and member of BNP Chairperson’s advisory council Abdus Salam where former BCB senior vice president and BNP executive committee member Shah Nurul Kabir Shahin, former Bangladesh cricket team captain Shafiqul Haque Hira, BNP executive committee member Tabith Awal, Engineer Ishrak Hossain, former BCB joint secretary Rafiqul Islam Babu and divisional sports organizing council member Qazi Mahiuddin Bulbul delivered speeches. The program was moderated by BNP sports affairs secretary and former national teal footballer Aminul Haque.
