Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Minister Tajul Islam has blamed the BNP-Jamaat for the attack on Hindu temples and houses. The minister said the BNP has placed Quran Sharif in the temple in collaboration with Jamaat to destroy our religious harmony. It will be unveiled soon.
By worshiping it, they want to make our country like Afghanistan by rioting. The minister said this while addressing a street rally organized by Upazila Awami League at Boda Municipality premises in Panchagarh on Friday afternoon.
At the time, he added, the BNPO, like Pakistan, had enslaved the people. BNP Jamaat has tortured minorities and Awami League is protecting it with life. People have been deceived by listening to them again and again. Now, without getting a chance to deceive people, old tricks are being hatched anew. They want to cause harm to us. They have implemented the instructions they received from Islamabad, Pakistan.
We must collectively resist this conspiracy. Everyone needs to be aware of them. Railway Minister Nurul Islam Sujan, among others, was present at the time. Later, the minister addressed various road shows including the defunct enclave and inaugurated an underground water treatment plant with a capacity of 350 cubic meters per hour in Panchagarh municipality.
MP from Panchagarh-1 constituency Mazaharul Haque Pradhan, senior secretary of the local government ministry Helaluddin Ahmed, deputy commissioner Zahurul Islam, superintendent of police Mohammad Yusuf Ali and other senior officials were present.
