BNP is a terrorist party: Quader

Awami League (AL) General Secretary (AL) and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said that many have identified BNP as a terrorist party but the ruling AL never thinks of banning BNP.

He made the remark at a press conference held at the AL president’s Dhanmondi political office in the capital on Thursday.
“Many have identified BNP as a terrorist party but the Awami League has not yet thought of banning BNP as a party. Here is a legal case. All must abide by laws,” he said.

A Canadian federal court in its verdict identified BNP as a terrorist entity while the United States imposed restriction on the entrance of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman. “America's Homeland Security has issued the restriction,” he added.

About the bail of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the AL general secretary said the judiciary is working independently while courts have granted him bail.

Granting someone bail does not mean that he or she is completely free from charges, he said, adding that the trial of cases filed against Fakhrul will continue.

Responding to a question whether the BNP’s movement will accelerate after  Fakhrul’s release on bail, Quader said the movement of BNP will decline instead of gearing up.
