Khaleda Zia under death threats
BNP Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi yesterday alleged that death threats were being issued against their party chief Khaleda Zia through some blogs and social media Facebook.
â€œIn a post it was stated 'I wish to launch mass killing by killing Khaleda',â€ he told a press conference at BNP's Nayapaltan central office.
Describing such threats as a criminal offence as well as crimes against humanity, he said, â€œWe strongly protest against it and condemn the remarks made by those spoiled, dirty, derailed and misleading bloggers.â€
In the wake of widespread killings of people in the country following the ICT-1 verdict against Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee, Khaleda at a press conference on Friday criticised the government for what she said resorting to genocide.
Reacting to her remarks, some bloggers and Facebook users accused Khaleda of siding with war criminals and Jamaat. They also made some unguarded remarks and issued threats against her.
Replying to a question, Rizvi said that his party was not worried about the threats as people would give them a befitting reply in time.
