Tarique committing terrorist acts in London: PM
Published: 10:32 AM, 22 April 2018
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that BNP`s acting chairman Tarique Rahman is committing terrorist acts staying in London. The fugitive convict will have to face justice for the crimes, she added.
The Prime Minister was speaking at a reception organized by UK Chapter Awami League at Methodist Central Hall in London on Saturday afternoon for Bangladesh`s graduation to a developing country from a least developed one.
The premier hoped that her government will be able to take back Tarique home. "We will take him back home Insha Allah and he will have to face justice for the crimes he has committed," she added.
She said, "We`ve already talked to the British government for Tarique`s extradition. How he is staying in London after being convicted and we are making efforts to take him back home."
The prime minister said, “Tarique Rahman committed terrorist acts at home and like that he is now committing the same crimes staying in the British capital."
Referring to the vandalism in Bangladesh High Commission in London by the BNP terrorists, Sheikh Hasina said the BNP terrorists at the directives of Tarique Rahman dishonoured the portrait of Bangabandhu. "I ask that from where they got so much courage to disrespect Bangabandhu?" she said.
In this connection, she criticised the role of the high commission. "I don`t know who were (sitting) in the high commission on that day and my question is that why they couldn`t do anything in this regard," she said.
Terming the BNP as a party of bankrupts, the Awami League president said how the BNP made a fugitive convict as its chairman. "They want to destroy the country by tarnishing its image," she said.
The prime minister said those who ransacked the Father of the Nation`s portrait will have to be punished.
The prime minister said Tarique Zia has forgotten that her mother landed in jail for corruption. "They now want her release, but we cannot release her. For that, they will have to do legal battle or seek mercy from the president and there is no other way," she said.
Eminent journalist Abdul Gaffar Chowdhury, Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam, State Minister for Women and Children Meher Afroz Chumki and local leaders of Awami League and its associate bodies spoke on the occasion, while UK Chapter AL president Sultan Mahmud Sharif chaired it.
