Fakhrul’s concern over BSF firing on the border

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has expressed deep concern over the firing by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) at the border. He expressed this concern in a statement on Saturday (June 8).

In the statement, Fakhrul said, the incident of Bangladeshi injured in handcuffs in Lalmonirhat on Friday afternoon, the day before the Prime Minister’s visit to India, is yet another proof that the government is silent about the killing and injuries of Bangladeshis by BSF forces on the border. And that is why the festival of killing Bangladeshis has started at the border.

He said that recently BSF has entered into the interior of Bangladesh and opened fire on women. The series of torture, killing and injuring of Bangladeshis at the border for a long time is still going on in full swing. The government of Bangladesh does not care about the safety of people’s life and property at the border because of its knee-jerk policy.

Fakhrul said that the blueprint to turn the country into a weak state by uprooting the independence and sovereignty of Bangladesh is being implemented just to retain illegal power. It will be possible to ensure the security of the country and the people only if the people’s government is established through free and fair elections.

BNP Secretary General said, “I strongly condemn and protest against the incident of Bangladeshi injured in BSF firing at Hatibandha border. Mirza Fakhrul urged to stop such brutality immediately, wishing for the recovery of the victim.
