BDR mutiny a conspiracy against country
Speakers at a roundtable yesterday said the recent mutiny by BDR jawans is part of a conspiracy against the country, which started in 1971.
Calling on all to be united against such conspiracy, they said the BDR mutiny was also part of a bid to foil the move to bring war criminals to book.
Conspirators in and outside the country have been hatching conspiracy since 1971 with a view to making the country leaderless, said Prof Dr Syed Anwar Hossain, former director general of Bangla Academy, who presented a keynote paper at the roundtable at Shahid Tajul Islam auditorium.
If the culprits were tried for the brutal killings that have taken place since 1971, such killings would not take place in future, he said at the roundtable organised by Human Rights International Bangladesh (HRIB).
Demanding exemplary punishment to those involved in the BDR mutiny, he said this is not only a question of human rights but also a question of the country's existence.
Former lawmaker Dr Mohammad Selim presided over the roundtable while Advocate Humayun Kabir Shikdar, Secretary General of HRIB Mainul Islam Chowdhury and Joint Secretary General Hasanuzzaman Hasan also spoke.
