In a shocking statement, Mayeen Uddin Khan Badal, executive president of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal, a component of the ruling Awami League-led 14-party alliance, today suggested the police shoot BNP activists for maintaining law and order.
He asked the law enforcers to follow his suggestion if BNP men do not stop ambush attacks.
Badal was talking to reporters after a meeting of the alliance at AL chief Sheikh Hasina’s Dhanmondi office in Dhaka. Top leaders of the AL and its allies were present at the briefing.
“If (BNP chief) Khaleda Zia appears in the streets with grenades, will police adore her?” he posed a question saying that they want Khaleda to oppose them politically.
Badal, also JSD lawmaker from Chittagong-8, said, “To ensure law and order, police should use batons first…If it does not work, they should shoot at legs of the BNP activists and later they should shoot in their chests, if required.”
Terming BNP a ‘terrorist party’, he said Khaleda has proved her stupidity by boycotting the January 5 national elections. Badal also suggested the BNP chief to read books.
