Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen yesterday urged all not to use Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s name for business purpose or self-interest.
“I request everyone who loves and respects Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to make sure that his name is not used for business purpose,” he said.
He made the remarks at a discussion on Mujibnagar Day, organised by Bangabandhu Foundation at Central Public Library in Dhaka.
Addressing the programme, Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder said those who claim BNP founder Ziaur Rahman as the proclaimer of independence should be put on trial in public court.
State Minister for Public Administration Farhad Hossain highlighted the role of Mujibnagar government formed on April 17 in 1971. “After the Mujibnagar government took oath, our Liberation War officially started,” he said.
He further said those who do not observe the day cannot be a pro-liberation force.
