“Our government has taken the decision to show zero-tolerance against militancy and terrorism. In no way shall we allow these militants and terrorists,” she said.


In a supplementary question, ruling Awami League Whip at the Parliament Shahiduzzaman Sarkar asked the premier whether her government took any initiative to unite the Muslim Ummah to combat militancy and terrorism carried out in the name of Islam in Muslim countries.

Responding to the supplementary question, the premier said she spoke of a united stand of the Muslim Ummah against militancy and terrorism to the King of Saudi Arabia, the OIC and other Muslim countries.

“The Saudi government has taken an initiative to fight militancy and terrorism. Bangladesh has joined the Islamic coalition. Almost 40 Muslim countries are in the coalition. It paved a way for the Muslim world to unite. Bangladesh has taken up this opportunity.”
