Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dhaka City South Ameer Nurul Islam Bulbul on Monday said Bangladesh has become a non-democratic country and people have been deprived of their minimum fundamental rights after 49 years of independence.
The City South Chief came up with the remarks while addressing a dua mahfil and discussion at a city auditorium to mark the 49th Victory Day.
The main theme of independence is to ensure a democratic state system and a democratic society, but the country has become a country without democracy, he said.
Jamaat Dhaka City South arranged the function to mark the 47th Victory Day.
The Dhaka City South Chief chaired the function while City Nayebe Ameer Munjurul Islam Bhiyan, city assistant secretary advocate Helal Uddin, city working committee member Mokerram Hossain, former central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir Abdul Jabbar, among others, were present at the function.
Bulbul also said democracy and fundamental rights of the people in the country are now at stake due to the ruling Awami League’s politics of vengeance and animosity.
The City Ameer also Bulbul remembered the martyrs of the Liberation War with due respects and prayed for eternal peace of the departed souls of them and peace, progress and prosperity of the city people as Bangladesh is celebrating 49th Victory Day, the most precious day of the nation.
He also said democracy, human values, and equality are the main principles of independence, but due to the politics of vengeance and partition, the country could not achieve that goal.
“Throughout patriotism and national unity regardless of party-like, religion and caste, it is possible to create a happy, prosperous, and prosperous Bangladesh. He called for the greater welfare of country and nation, to abandon politics of vendetta, revenge, and discrimination, to build greater national unity,” he said.
Due to the Awami League government’s politics of abnegation and misinformation, the joy is very fading today, the City Ameer said.
“This day is highly significant as it is a day of victory against oppression and torture. I am recalling the outstanding contribution of those valiant heroes, who had sacrificed their lives for the nation. I am praying for the salvation of their departed souls. I would like to express my deep gratitude and respect to the freedom fighters who had participated in the country’s liberation war,” Nurul Islam Bulbul said.
“The nation is observing glorious Victory Day in such a crucial period when a suffocating atmosphere is prevailing nationwide. The nation has already lost democracy, the best output of the independence and the society is moving towards an uncertain destiny,” the Jamaat leader said.
The only way to get rid of the situation is to hold a free, credible election, he again said.
The central executive member of the party said: “The nation will enjoy the real taste of independence and simultaneously will be able to achieve perpetual welfare when the blessings of Almighty Allah would come through the process of establishing an Islamic society. I am praying for Almighty Allah’s blessings and assistance to establish that esteemed Islamic society.”
