Dhaka, Dec 23: Awami League Advisory Council Member and Central 14-Party Alliance spokesperson Amir Hossain Amu on Tuesday said it is the old habit of anti-liberation forces to spread political virus under the cover of religion after failing in political movements.

“Today the country is affected by political virus covered with religion,” he said while presiding over a virtual discussion marking the Victory Day arranged by the Central 14-Party Alliance.

Amu said the anti-liberation forces are out to launch their evil efforts by carrying out attacks on sculpture of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman when the country is marching forward on the highways of development and progress under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

He called upon the pro-liberation forces to be united to resist the anti-country conspirators.

Speaking on the occasion, AL Presidium Member Begum Matia Chowdhury said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is taking ahead the country on the path of development and prosperity to materialize the dream of Bangabandhu overcoming all odds.

Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon said BNP is the patron of communal and radical politics. “We all will have to be united to face them politically,” he said.

Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal President Hasanul Haq Inu said identified political fundamentalists and the evil forces who have hired for carrying out anti-country activities should not be spared. The evil forces should be given a befitting reply, he added.

Awami League Cultural Affairs Secretary Asim Kumar Ukil moderated the discussion while AL Advisory Council Member Mozaffar Hossain Paltu, AL Central Working Committee Member Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, Bir Bikram, Jatiya Party (JP) General Secretary Sheikh Shahidul Islam and Bangladesh Tariqat Federation Chairman Najibul Bashar Maizbhandari addressed it, among others.
