Online desk : Neo-Razakars have resorted to distorting the history of the War of Liberation of 1971, said BNP vice-chairman Major (Retd) Hafiz Uddin Ahmed Bir Bikram.

He made the remark while speaking at a protest rally held at Jatiya Press Club auditorium in the capital on Sunday.

Bangladesh Muktijoddha Dal and Muktijuddher Projonmo organised the rally in protest against the decision of stripping BNP founder and late President Ziaur Rahman’s ‘Bir Uttam’ gallantry title.

“We fought for the independence of this country for nine months. We freed Sylhet on December 15, 1971 fighting under the leadership of the then Major Ziaur Rahman. Shaheed President declared the independence of Bangladesh from Kalurghat Betar Kendra in Chattogram when the country’s people became frightened just before the War of Liberation. The entire nation got inspired hearing his voice. His declaration remains a milestone in the history of Bengali nation,” Hafiz said.

“But, 50 years after the country’s independence, we now hear that Ziaur Rahman was a collaborator of Pakistan. I was a witness that Major Ziaur Rahman Bir Uttam fought the war in the battle-field. He brought the country’s independence fighting against the enemies. It’s unfortunate that a vested quarter is now trying to strip of his gallantry title,” he said.

The BNP leader said the word ‘Razakar’ is a very hatred one in Bangladesh. Another word is also going to be approved as a hatred one, which is JAMUKA (Jatiya Muktijuddha Council). The neo-Razakars have resorted to distorting the history of Liberation War. JAMUKA can’t imagine how horrific the War of Liberation was. We brought the independence of Bangladesh sacrificing our lives. The political leaders were refugees at that time. Those who fought for the nation, they deserve minimum respect in this free country.”
