Mobilise public opinion for extradition of Bangabanhu killers: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged the expatriate Bangladeshis living in North America to mobilise public opinion for the extradition of convicted killers of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The PM said this while addressing a reception accorded to her at Centre Mont-Royal in Montreal, Canada, by expatriate Bangladeshis on Saturday.
"So far the government knows that one convicted killer of Bangabandhu is hiding in the USA, one in Canada, two in Pakistan while two others remained traceless. How a civilised country could give shelter to a convicted killer?" she said.
She said Bangladesh government has already asked the US and Canada why they are nurturing and giving shelter to the killers.
"I’m leaving a demand before you to write letters to pubic representatives of those countries where you’re residing and ask why those countries would give shelter to the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman," she said, according to a news agency. -bz
