Terming BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia a ‘fake mother of democracy’, Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Friday said country’s democracy cannot be protected by such a person.
He made the remarks while addressing a function organised by Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal at Shaheed Colonel Taher auditorium in the capital marking the joining of over 100 cultural activists to the party.
Inu also urged the BNP chief to come to the path of democracy after parting her ways with Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and Hefajat-e-Islam Bangladesh.
The Information Minister asked the cultural activists to raise their voices against the communal politics and put pressure on the authorities concerned to bring all war criminals to justice.
The function was addressed, among others, by Jasad joint general secretary Habibur Rahman Showkat and organising secretary Nurul Akter.
