Road Transport and Bridges Minister and Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader today called the killing of Sheikh Russel, the youngest son of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, an abominable crimes in the human civilisation’s history.

“The assassination of Sheikh Russel is one of the despicable crimes in the history of human civilisation. Women and children were not targeted at any political killing in the history of civilisation…but women and children have fallen prey to political killing in Bangladesh,” he said.

He said in choked voices, even, 10-year-old Russel did not escape the political killing as he along with most of the family members, including his father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was brutally killed on August 15, 1975. He was talking to reporters after placing a wreath on the grave of Shaheed Sheikh Russel on the occasion of his 56th birthday.

Heavily came down on BNP, Quader said raising allegation is a disease of
BNP and it has nothing to do anything without it. “We hope that BNP would
come back to positive and people-centric politics, leaving the practices of
raising allegation,” he added.

The AL general secretary said BNP is carrying out propaganda against the
government and despite being a responsible opposition party, it is conducting
irresponsible activities.

“After being failure in elections and waging movement, now they (BNP
leaders) are looking for new issues. They find politics in all issues,” he said.

After safe road and quota reform movements, Quader said, BNP was trying to find an issue in Abrar killing. But people would not respond to its politics of finding new issues, he added.
