Eminent jurist Dr Kamal Hossain today said the ongoing students’ movement demanding reform to the existing quota system in civil service is a logical one and blasted the people who branded the quota reformists as Razakars’ children.
“The quota reform activists are not the children of Razakars rather they are the sons of the soil,” Dr Kamal, also the president Anchorof Gono Forum, came up with the remarks while addressing a programme at the Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka this noon.
The people who are doing businesses in the name of the Liberation War have forgotten the spirit of those who sacrificed their lives during the country’s fight for freedom, he said.
Claiming that freedom fighters are being undermined and their spirits are also being misinterpreted deliberately, Dr Kamal said, “Our sons are engaged in the movement with their logical proposal.”
Claiming that the attacks on the quota reform activists is a matter of shame, he said the agitated students have been waging movement only to meet their demand for reformation to the existing quota system instead of other means.
“Bangabandhu, Tajuddin Ahmed did not sacrifice their lives to enjoy the assets of the state,” Dr Kamal said, adding that they did not compromisewith their ideology and principle.
He also underscored the need for forging a unity in a bid to protect the country and its people.
