Jamaat Dhaka City South arranged a discussion on National Revolution and Solidarity Day
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dhaka City South ameer Nurul Islam Bulbul said people of the country are living through a suffocating situation as the ruling Awami League government are hiking the price of essential commodities including fuel inconsiderately.
Bulbul, who is also central executive council member of the party, said the hike of fuel price has created an extremely miserable situation for the public transport passengers.
He was speaking at a discussion held on the occasion of National Revolution and Solidarity Day on Sunday.
City secretary and central working committee member Dr Shafiqul Islam Masud, nayeb-e-ameer Munjurul Islam Bhiyan, assistant secretary Abdul Jabber, among others, were present at the function.
The people who are agitating in the transport sector are also those who are backed by this incumbent government, he said, adding that on the one hand, the government is increasing the price of fuel and on the other hand, it is not considering its impact on people’s lives and livelihood.
The country’s people are living in dire condition as the government is not paying heed to the price spiral of essentials, the city ameer stated.
There is no the rule of law in the country today while democracy is in exile and human rights are in great danger, he continued.
In order to get rid of this, he called upon the country’s people specially the city dwellers to be united to establish the civic and voting rights.
Nurul Islam Bulbul said, “On November 7, 1975, the people of all walks of life took to the streets with a strong oath to defend the independence, sovereignty and democracy of the country.”
The government had made a plan to destroy the country since it assumed power in 2009 by killing 57 brilliant army officers who were the vigilant guards of Bangladesh, the central Jamaat leader said.
Today it has become clear to the nation. The BDR forces guarding the country’s border have been destroyed. As a result, the country’s geographical security is going through a delicate situation today. There is no alternative to launch a street movement to save the country and the nation from this crisis, he said.
So, inspired by the spirit of Revolution Day, everyone must make a united effort to end the dictatorship, fascism and oppression, he said, adding that in order to uphold the independence of Bangladesh, every citizen of the country has to play an effective role from their own position, he added.
