Rally Protesting Attacks on Gaza

UN, OIC failed to play due roles

Staff Correspondent

Protesting the death of innocent civilians in Israel's ongoing military offensive in Gaza, Bangladesh Nari Mukti Sangsad, a woman front of the Workers Party of Bangladesh, yesterday came down hard on the United Nations (UN) and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for failing to play due roles.
At a protest rally in front of the Jatiya Press Club in the capital around 3:30pm, the speakers censured the “US support for Israel” despite world-wide protest against the Israel's brutality and massacre in Gaza.
Addressing as chief guest, Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon said Israel should be prosecuted for committing war crimes by killing innocent Gazans.
Criticising the role of Western countries, he said these nations find crimes of human rights violation in many countries except Israel.
Menon also urged the countrymen to wage protest against Israel's naked atrocities in Gaza.
Lawmaker Hazera Sultana, also president of the woman front, said the US had been backing Israel “shamelessly” for implementing its imperialist agenda.
Saleha Sultana, general secretary of the front, among others, spoke.
