Govt out to use militancy for political gain: Fakhrul

The government wants to use the militancy issue to make its political gain and suppress its opponents instead of removing the ill force, alleges BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.


The BNP secretary came up with the observation while talking to reporters after placing floral wreaths at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave at city’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar on Thursday morning.


Mirza Fakhrul said that militant and extremist groups have turned the country into their safe haven as the government failed to stop them.


He said that the government has resorted to terrorism, violence and extremism as their means to perpetuate its power.


The BNP secretary general blamed what he said “government’s inaction” for failing to curb the militant attacks in the country.


Fakhrul has also expressed his party’s strong position against all any kinds of militant activities.


Describing the militant and extremist groups as monstrous, Fakhrul said they are enemies of the democracy, humanity and civilisation.


“The ruling party has lost its ability to stop their activities. The members of law enforcement agencies and their family members are being attacked by them due to the government’s acute failure,” he blamed.


Due to the government’s blame game, the militant outfits are rather being encouraged, Fakhrul said.
