Govt making list of ‘fake’ freedom fighters: BNP

BNP today alleged that the government is making a list of "fake" freedom fighters, comprising of Awami League supporters and their relatives who did not take part in the Liberation War in 1971.

"Those who are now in power did not fight the Liberation War. They did not see how the Liberation War took place in the battlefield. That is why they want to snatch the title of real freedom fighters," said BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi at a human chain in front of the Jatiya Press Club today.

Referring to BNP leader Hafizuddin Ahmed's remark, Rizvi said only 80,000 freedom fighters had fought the Liberation War in 1971. "But Awami League is making a list of 2.5 lakh freedom fighters," he claimed.

Doctors' Association of Bangladesh (DAB) arranged the human chain protesting a move to revoke BNP founder Ziaur Rahman's "Bir Uttam" title.
