BNP’s chief whip Joynal Abedin Faruk said, “Ziaur Rahman should be given proper respect rather than being abusive about him.” He also said, “Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, you are the leader of an ancient political party of this nation. Your father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is the most legendary leader of this nation’s history. No one can deny Bangabandhu’s contribution. And no one does. But Ziaur Rahman also has a huge role in this nation’s liberation war. We should also consider that his contributions aren’t left out.”
On Monday at a discussion at Daily Our Time office he stated these. “Our leader Khaleda Zia wanted to give both the leaders the proper respect but it is not kept that way because some yes-men of Awami league. As a freedom fighter I want that they stay at their positions and given proper respect”, said Joynal.
