Godfathers rule districts, alleges BNP

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Sunday alleged that the law is not allowed to take its own course as the godfathers have been created in districts.


“Godfathers have been created in districts …they’re least bothered about the customary law. They’re forcing people to obey them as they don’t care them (people) and they don’t have any accountability to them,” he said.


Rizvi came up with the remarks while speaking at a milad mahfil arranged by BNP on the ground floor of its central office on the occasion of the holy Shab-e-Barat, UNB reports.


He said religious leaders are being killed in the country now as the government has failed to ensure public security. “The country’s majority people are Muslims and indecent remarks are being made repeatedly about their favourite Prophet. This is not secularism!”


Apparently referring to Narayanganj schoolteacher’s humiliation, the BNP leader said people are making disparaging remarks about Islam under the current government and they are being punished in a ‘godfather style’.
