Parliament Reporter: Law Minister Anisul Haque has questioned why Ziaur Rahman did not take the initiative to try Bangabandhu’s murder by canceling the Immunity Ordinance if he was really a freedom fighter.
He said this in the context of a remark made by BNP MP Harunur Rashid in the 14th session of the 11th National Assembly on Saturday.
Asked about the BNP, Anisul Haque said, “If the killer Ziaur Rahman was a freedom fighter, did anyone hold his hand that Bangabandhu’s murder cannot be tried?” Did anyone hold his hand that this Indemnity Ordinance has been passed on 26th September, this Ordinance cannot be repealed – no one has done such a thing. Why didn’t he do this trial?
“This constitution says … and if the constitution does not contain it, it is the right of the people in the CRPC – the right to the Code of Criminal Procedure, that if a murder or a crime is committed, they can go to the police station and file a statement.” He also took away that right, he has not corrected it for 21 years. And today, as a BNP MP, you are saying that this debate should stop. ”
The law minister said it doesn’t matter whether BNP considers Bangabandhu the father of the nation or not. Because this nation knows that he is the father of the Bengali nation and will preserve it forever.
During the discussion of a bill on the limitation of parliamentary seats at the beginning of the legislative work, Harun objected to giving a brief history of the re-enactment of laws enacted during the military period.
Later, in the discussion of two more bills, the law minister and Harun responded to each other’s statements.
During the Bar Council Ice Pass, Aaron commented that the judges were partisan. Later, Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury expanded it in response to the demand of the law minister.
