The intellectuals and journalists of the country have biased political stands which help develop culture of denial of justice in the country said educationist Sirajul Islam Chowdhury on Friday.
“The people have nowhere to go as the country got divided into two political platforms and in the meantime innocent children like Twaki are getting killed,” said the former teacher of Dhaka University at a roundtable titled ‘Government’s reluctance to Twaki murder trial’ organised by the Santras Nirmul Twaki Mancha at the National Press Club in the afternoon.
He accused the government of not holding the trial of Twaki murder.
He said the intellectuals are taking the county backwards by misleading the people.
He said one group of intellectuals are forming a platform of ‘hundred’, while the other part is making it ten times more by forming platform of ‘thousand’ aiming at taking their political parties of choice in power.
He also said that the journalists of the country have the same problem. They are divided into two political stands whereas once they were united for the sake of the country.
Journalist Kamal Lohani said the people of the country well understands the meaning when a letter does not reach the jail from court in seven days.
He also said the government is conspiring with Jamaat-e-Islami and Hefajat-e-Islam.
The roundtable was presided over by Twaki’s father and convener of Twaki Mancha Rafiur Rabbi.
