'Tamim chapter ends through N’ganj raid'
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal today claimed that the chapter of Bangladeshi origin Canadian citizen Tamim Chowdhury has finished through Narayanganj raid and sacked army major Syed Ziaul Haq will meet the same fate immediately.
"There is no room for militancy in Bangladesh. We will eliminate them from the country with the efforts of people," the home minister said while addressing an anti-militancy rally at Bagmara upazila in Rajshahi this afternoon.
Sounding a note of caution, Kamal said either the militant activists will have to surrender before the law enforcers or to leave the country.
Kamal said the militancy emerged in Bagmara during the BNP-Jamaat tenure and the then government has nurtured the militancy for its own interest.
Now, the BNP-Jamaat is linked with those who are carrying out militant activities across the country, he alleged.
Calling upon all to remain vigilant against the militancy and terrorism, the home minister said, "We all will have to turn around against the militancy and terrorism from our respective positions."
