Different political parties yesterday strongly criticised the five-point agreement between Awami League and Khelafat Majlish saying that the deal had not only frustrated the country’s secular and democratic forces, but also undermined the spirit of the War of Liberation of 1971.
“Country’s fanatic, ultra-communal and fascist forces have been patronised through the agreement. The communal and ultra-religious elements have already succeeded to take forward their conspiracy riding on the shoulders of BNP. Now, they have succeeded to ride on the shoulders of Awami League,” said the Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) at a meeting yesterday.
The meeting observed that the Awami League has done a serious harm to the non-communal democratic movement by inviting the Razakars and autocrats as part of its election strategy. As a result, these evil forces have got the opportunities to hatch conspiracy entering the major political parties.
It was observed at the meeting that the country’s people had become desperate to get rid of the misrule of BNP-Jamaat alliance. This misrule can be brought to end utilizing the unity of people and power of the movement.
“Instead of adopting that path, the Awami League has formed a grand alliance inducting the communal evil forces, Razakars and autocrats. It may be possible to go to power by taking such initiative, but it will never bring an end to the misrule,” the meeting said.
With CPB general secretary Muzahidul Islam Selim in the chair, the meeting was addressed by Shahidullah Chowdhury, Morshed Ali, Ruhin Hossain Prince, Mahbub Alam, and Ahsan Habib Lablu, among others.
Besides, the Gano Forum yesterday strongly criticised the five-point agreement signed between Awami League general secretary and Khelafat Majlish secretary general.
In a meeting, the central committee of the Gano Forum said the agreement surprised and worried every free-thinking and conscious individual of the country.
“Through the agreement, spirit of the War of Liberation of 1971, sacred constitution of 1972, 23-point demands of the people, and the very foundation of the secular democratic Bangladesh have been put at stake,” the meeting said.
With Advocate Zahirul Islam, the meeting was held at the central office at Eden Complex in the city.
