Do whatever necessary to stop violence, PM orders police

Special Correspondent

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday ordered the police to take steps whatever necessary to stop the ongoing violence unleashed by BNP and Jamaat across the country in the name of blockade and hartal.
“I’ll take the responsibility for whatever happens (for the action). But, you’ll have to ensure the security of lives of the common people and their property. You’ll take steps whatever necessary against those burning people and attacking them...there’s no need to hesitate,” she said.
The Prime Minister also said, “In doing so, you must accomplish the task without any hesitation and I give you the liberty.”
Hasina was addressing an evaluation meeting with senior officials of the Bangladesh Police at the International Conference Room of her office marking the Police Week 2015.
She said what the BNP-Jamaat has been committing since January 5 last in the name of hartal and blockade would never be recognised as a movement in political history as these are completely terrorist and militant acts.
“The way the militants are committing acts in different countries of the world, the same way they (BNP-Jamaat) are now perpetrating destructive acts (across the country),” she said.
“I hope you’ll take stern actions in your respective areas to curb these terrorist acts after talking to the common people, public representatives and law enforcement agencies like Ansar and VDP and Rab. You’ll have to unitedly curb such militant acts with an iron hand,” she added.
Mentioning that the BNP-Jamaat had a horrific plan to destabilise the country, the Prime Minister thanked the police and intelligence agencies for thwarting their bid to create such an unstable situation.
Alleging that the current anarchy unleashed by the BNP-Jamaat is meant to deter the economic dynamism and pace of development, she said the worst victims of these subversive acts are the common and hardworking people.
Asserting that it would not be tolerated that anyone would play game with the fate of people, deter the pace of development and cause pain to the poor people, Hasina sought cooperation of the police force to this end adding, “You’ll have to ensure the security of public life and property through curbing terrorist acts with tough measures.”
She also called upon members of the police to discharge their duties with a strong mentality to establish the rule of law, protect human rights, uphold the constitution and protect democracy alongside protecting the rights of women and children, elderly people and religious minorities.
Hasina urged them to come out of their colonial mentality and said her government would reorganize the Bangladesh police using modern technology.
Regarding the various demands raised by police officials, including that of forming a separate division under the Home Ministry, Hasina said some five Grade-1 posts have been created in the police with two officials already in place in that position, while the rest three would be upgraded to that post. “The number of Grade-1 posts in the police will be raised gradually.”
She also assured them of providing necessary vehicles, including speedboats alongside other equipment, enhancing the manpower, gradually setting up newer police barracks as well as setting up four new police lines in the capital.
Citing the size of the Home Ministry as huge comprising various law enforcement agencies, the Prime Minister said her government has a plan to reorganise the Ministry of Home Affairs through creating various Divisions to bring dynamism in its activities.
Citing her government’s plan to raise the number of administrative divisions to 10, she said this would also raise the scope of work of the administration and police.
Hasina said she has not assumed office to relish power, rather she believes that it was her duty and responsibility to ensure the welfare and betterment of people.
Turning to the ongoing war crimes trial, she said the trial is going on properly and this has to be taken ahead to free the country from stigma.
The Prime Minister also extended thanks to members of the police and other law enforcement agencies for their role in holding the last January 5 polls and tackling the current countrywide situation in the wake of arson, violence, hurling petrol bombs by the BNP-Jamaat nexus.
She also renewed her pledge to restore peace in the country, turn Bangladesh into a middle-income country well before 2021 and a prosperous developed one by 2041.
State Minister for Home Affairs Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal and Home Ministry Senior Secretary Mozammel Haque Khan spoke on the occasion while IGP AKM Shahidul Haque gave the address of welcome.
Besides, DMP Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia, DIG of Chittagong Range Shahidul Islam and Dhaka District police super Habibur Rahman also spoke on the occasion.

Hasina  talks  vindictive
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said she hopes BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia would now feel the pain of losing a son and would not make any mother’s lap empty by unleashing violence in the name of a political movement.
The Prime Minister said she can understand the pain of Khaleda Zia at the death of her son and also the reason behind getting sedative as she could not bear the pain.
“But cannot she realise now the pain of that mother whose son was killed by arson attack in front of her, won’t she refrain herself from such cruel job?” she said.
Hasina came up with the remarks responding to a supplementary question from AL MP Tajul Islam (Comilla-9) in Parliament during PM’s question-answer session.
Talking about the justification of the ongoing movement of BNP-Jamaat, she said they started killing people in the name of movement without any reason.
“No sin is severer than killing a person by an arson attack.”
She also termed BNP as the party of ‘terrorist, militants and killers’.
Hasina also noted that she felt insulted as she was not allowed to enter the BNP chief’s Gulshan political office for which she failed to console the BNP chief at the death of her son.
“You know the gate was locked… with the main gate locked, my car couldn’t enter the office, but I didn’t think of anything, even I didn’t care about my security when getting down from my car I decided to enter the office through the small gate,” she said.
“But when I was approaching to the small gate at that time I was informed that that gate was also locked,” she said. “I was not allowed to enter.”
Hasina said she does not know whether such behaviour has been shown to anyone in Bangladesh culture.
Saying that people of all strata are now fed up, the Prime Minister requested all to be united against the terrorists.
Replying to a starred question from Mahfuzur Rahman (Chittagong-3), she said from January 5-26 at total of 26 people got killed in arson attacks while 133 people suffered burn injuries by the terrorists of BNP-Jamaat.
These terrorists burnt 382 busses and trucks, attacked police 85 times, and two trains derailed in 14 incidents, one executive magistrate was injured due to the subversive activities.
She also said the government took stern steps to stop these evil deeds.

Khaleda expresses gratitude to all for offering condolences
She says sorry to those whom she couldn’t meet

Holiday Desk

Dhaka, Jan 28 (UNB) – BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Wednesday expressed her deep gratitude to the people of all walks of life for offering their condolences to her following the death of her younger son Arafat Rahman Koko and joining his janaza.
In a statement, Khaleda also said sorry to those who could not met her after coming to her office to console her. “I hope all will look at it with grace and forgiveness considering the situation.”
“As a mother, I’m naturally deeply saddened and mentally devastated over the sudden and premature death of Arafat Rahman Koko, the younger son of martyr President Ziaur Rahman and mine,” the BNP chief said.
Though he was raised in a political family, Khaleda said Koko was not involved in politics as he only engaged himself in sports. “It’s a matter of regret that he had been subjected to various tortures, harassments and propaganda only for being a member of the Zia Family. He even couldn’t get rid of extreme vindictive adversities when he was undergoing treatment abroad.”
Khaleda deplored that she was deprived of getting a chance to see the face of her ailing son for about eight years. “At last, I had to receive my son’s dead body.”
The BNP chief expressed her gratitude to the Bangladeshi expatriates living in Malaysia for joining the first namaz-e-janaza for Koko at Kuala Lumpur breaking all the previous records of presence of people in such funeral prayer there. “The sympathy and compassion I received from all at this time of deep grief and shocks have genuinely touched me.”
She also thanked Bangladeshi expatriates living in other countries and country’s people for joining the gayebana janazas arranged for Koko.
Khaleda said she was deeply moved and encouraged as ‘lakhs of people’ from all walks of life set an unforgettable record by joining Koko’s janaza at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque and thanked all.
“I’m overwhelmed by the presence of the huge people and it’ll enormously help me to come to the terms,” the BNP chief observed.
Khaleda also voiced gratitude to the leaders of different foreign countries who sent condolence messages to her and to the foreign envoys, the representatives of international organisations and diplomatic missions who either sent messages to her or visited her office offering condolences.
Khaleda urged all to pray for Koko. “I want to tell the country’s people that I’m among you and will remain so until my death.”
Arafat Rahman Koko died in Malaysia on Saturday at the age of 45 and was buried at Banani Graveyard on Tuesday.

BNP wants dialogue: Govt for  street solution

Special Correspondent

BNP and its allies are  continuing blockade and hartals to press for a dialogue and inclusive national election but the government continues to talk in the language of guns.
Pro-BNP intellectuals at a discussion here on Wednesday stressed the need for holding an inclusive national election under a government formed by a national consensus to overcome the current political crisis.
They noted that only a transparent and acceptable election can help the country get over the current political crisis.
The discussion, styled ‘Recent National Crisis: Ways to Overcome’, was held at Shaheed Shafiur Rahman Auditorium of Supreme Court Bar Association Building under the banner of ‘Sushil Samaj’.
Speaking on the occasion, former vice chancellor of Dhaka University Prof Emajuddin Ahmed on behalf of ‘Sushil Samaj’ recommended a national unity government to get over the political crisis, saying ‘The task of the unity government will be to arrange an all inclusive election to properly run all the activities of the people’s republic’.
“Only an all inclusive, credible, transparent and acceptable election can help the nation get over the existing great crisis,” he said.
Prof Emajuddin also noted that the 15th amendment to the constitution had not reflected the will of the people of the country and is hindering the functions of the state apparatuses.
“As the current system has become ineffective for resolving the crisis through fair and acceptable elections due to the 15th amendment, the will of the people as the source of power has not been reflected in it,” he said.
Presided over by SCBA president Khandker Mabbub Hossain and moderated by former president of a faction of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) Ruhul Amin Gazi, the discussion was also addressed by former Chief Election Commissioner and Justice Abdur Rouf former pro-vice chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Prof Dr Abdul Mannan and columnist Farhad Mazhar.
Meanwhile, blaming  BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia as the ‘queen of anarchy and trouble’, Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Tuesday said the country’s ongoing crisis will be resolved on the streets, not on the negotiation table.
He, however, said they may consider sitting in talks only if Khaleda Zia stops violence unleashed across the country.
The minister was speaking at a ‘Meet-the-Press’ programme organised by Bangladesh Secretariat Reporters’ Forum at the Secretariat.
Referring to Ganoforum president Dr Kamal Hossain’s call for an effective dialogue to break the ongoing stalemate, Inu said those suggesting talks should ask Khaleda first to stop the violence before inviting the Prime Minister. “Ask her (Khaleda) to leave militancy and war criminals before talking about politics, election and democracy.”
He further said if the arsonists are to go to jail for their crimes, the BNP chairperson should also be put behind the bars for instigating violence through her statements and speeches.

Digital movie music Zero Degree launched

Holiday Report

‘Zero Degree’ a digital content of movie and music has been launched at Hotel Sonargaon last week From now on, all Robi subscribers could listen to all the songs of the thriller movie simply by dialing 28777 on their phone.
Zero Degree, the first of its kind in Bangladesh, has six tracks in it with a 7 min 20 sec title track ‘prem o ghrina’ by James. Nancy and Samina Chowdhury, besides Audit, Probor Ripon, PrithbiRaj and Swandhi, gave their beautiful voices to the other tracks of the movie. It also has two very popular Rabindra-Sangeet in it. Then, there is one track from Bhupen Hajarika and another one, inspired by the legendary poet Jibananda Das. Credit for the background score of the movie goes to Emon Shaha.
Storyline of the unexpected thriller ‘Zero Degree’ spins around a breathtaking saga of love, treason and vengeance. Besides Mahfuz Ahmed, Joya Ahsan and Dilruba Yasmin Ruhi in the lead roles, Dhaliwood legend Telesamad, Tarik Anam Khan, Iresh Zaker, debutant Jaib and Mir Rabby also made their strong signature in the movie.
Raisal Mahmud, General Manager, Value Added Service of ROBI Axiata, says, we are always onto something which is bold and innovative. The spirit of the movie matches up very much with that of ROBI, that says, ‘jwole uthhun apon shoktite’.
All team-members of Zero Degree including its director and performers Animesh Aich, Mahfuz Ahmed, Joya Ahsan, Samina Chowdhury, Prince Mahmud, Nancy, Moumita, Jaib and Shoyeb, naming a few, were also present on the floor to celebrate the moment together. The get-together was conducted by top model and actress Nowshin.
Sharing his working experience with the Zero Degree project, producer and actor Mahfuz says, it’s in no way a television drama; fairly, we have given out our best to make it a total movie. Joya says, at moments it felt like I am actually doing something I have never done before in my whole life. It’s not something we see everyday coming out of the so called ‘formula movie’. It is, indeed, something out of the box.
The debut director Animesh, also the songwriter of two of the tracks in his film, called for a change to be brought out in the film context of Bangladesh. The trend has already begun. Zero Degree is nothing but one small step to that end.
