In the speech of the chief guest at the meeting, Awami League presidium member and Rasik mayor Khairuzzaman Liton said that the killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family on August 15, 1975 and four national leaders inside the prison on November 3 were based on the same formula. Bangabandhu’s murder case and four national leaders’ murder case has been decided. The judgment has been partially implemented. The government continues to try to implement the verdict by bringing back the fugitive convicts abroad, including the United States, England. However, this effort of the government is hindered by those countries that do not want to return the murderers on various pretexts. The nation wants to see who was the person behind this murder. It is the need of the hour to set up a commission to find the beneficiaries of the killings and the masterminds behind the murders.
He said, Bangabandhu’s worthy companions are the four national leaders, which was proved in the Great War of Liberation in 1971. They did not treat Bangabandhu unfairly, they did not compromise with injustice. We have to remember these things. On this day, I remember Bangabandhu and the four national leaders with humble respect.
