The government has not only contained militancy but is also working to bring militants back to a normal life, said Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today.
"Bangladesh does not patronise militancy and we never said we have eradicated militancy but we say that we have been able to contain militancy," the minister said while talking to reporters at the surrender programme of some militants at the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Headquarters.
"Many people in different countries have asked me how we are tackling militancy. In reply, we said the people of the country do not support militancy that is why we have been able to control militancy," he said.
The nine militants who surrendered at the event are—Jannat Asma, Mohamamd Hossain alias Hasan Gazi (23), Mohamamd Saifullah (37), Saiful Islam (31), Mohammad Al Mamun (26), Saidur Rahman (22) and Abdur Rahman Sohel (28).
Other than this, a couple--Shaon Muntaha Ibne Shawkat (34) and Nusrat Ali Juhi (29) also surrendered before the home minister at the RAB headquarters.
