Aug 15 massacre was an attempt to kill our ideology: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said assassination of Bangabandhu was an attempt not only to kill a family but also the victory and ideology of Bangladesh.

"August 15 was not about the killing of a family. It was an attempt to kill the victory and the ideology of the Bengalee nation through which Bangladesh achieved the independence," she said, reports UNB.

The Prime Minister was addressing a blood donation and discussion programme organised by Bangladesh Krishak League near Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 on the very first day of the month of mourning.

Sheikh Hasina, also Awami League president, said that after the brutal killing of Bangabandhu, an attempt was made to turn independent Bangladesh into the cohorts of the defeated Pakistani occupational forces.

The Prime Minister also alleged that Khandaker Mostaque Ahmed and Ziaur Rahman were involved in the plot to assassinate Father of the Nation along with most of his family members.

Later, the Prime Minister went round different beds where the leaders and workers of Krishak League were voluntarily donating blood.

Agriculture Minister Begum Matia Chowdhury, Health Minister Mohammad Nasim, Awami League Presidium member Dr M Abdur Razzaque and Krishak League General Secretary Khandoker Shamsul Haque Reza spoke, among others, at the programme chaired by Krishak League President Motahar Hossain Mollah.
