Quader warns of actions against perpetrators of violence during Durga Puja

The government is determined to identify those behind the evil move of disturbing communal harmony in the country, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said on Saturday adding that the culprits will be brought to justice through impartial investigation.

Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was addressing the triennial council of Rajbari District of the ruling party.

He said the attacks on mandaps and Hindu homes during the just concluded Durga Puja celebration was pre-planned evil communal forces, reports UNB.

"There had been no violence or problem during the Durga Puja of the Hindu community in the last 12 years but this time the evil communal forces have created this misdeed in a planned manner," he lamented.

Referring to those who attacked Hindu temples as enemies of the values of the 1971 War of Liberation Quader further said that unity and resistance must be built against these evil forces.

He also commented that it is normal for those who can't tolerate the development of the country to get upset.

Quader also warned that those who are repeatedly looking for opportunities for violence by capitalising on religious faiths will not be allowed to do so.

Trashing the allegation that the government is involved in these atrocities, the AL leader said BNP wants to take advantage of this issue.

The government has no reason to be involved in activities that destabilise the country, he added.

Quader said strict organisational action will be taken against those who sent disputes names to the party's central committee as candidates for the UP election.

He said those who are currently deprived of party nominations have nothing to fear as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will evaluate their sacrifice if they wait patiently.
