Posts and Telecommunication Minister Mustafa Jabbar on Friday said the evil forces, who committed brutal atrocities in August 15, 1975 and August 21, 2004, want to turn Bangladesh into a communal, fundamental and failed state.

“The forces opposed the independence of Bangladesh and they now want to destroy the country…We can never let them to do so,” he said.

Mustafa Jabbar said these while addressing a programme as the chief guest organised by Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC), marking the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Mourning Day.

Post and Telecommunication Division Secretary Ashok Kumar Biswas also addressed the meeting with BTRC Chairman Md Jahurul Haque in the chair. The minister said the people, who wanted to make Bangladesh as a failed state for long, have not given up yet as they are still hatching conspiracy against the state.
