Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque said on Saturday that Hefazat-e-Islam will not be spared in any way for carrying out violence recently, reports BSS.

“They have hurt the spirit of the Liberation War by taking stand against the state, therefore, fair trials would be ensured,” he said.

The minister made the remarks after paying homage to the portrait of the Father of the Nation at Dhanmondi No. 32 on the occasion of historic Mujibnagar Day.

Hefazat-e-Islam carried out the violence from March 26 to March 27 in imitation of what the Pakistanis did in 1971. Hefazat will have to face trial legally; they will not be exempted from this in any way, he said.

Secretary of the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs Tapan Kanti Ghosh was present.

“Hefazat does not respect our national anthem, does not fly the national flag,” he said adding that “They do not believe in the spirit of the liberation war. We have liberated the country by fighting with a lot of blood.

“They have burnt down our government offices, courts and Ustad Alauddin Khan’s house, so this situation cannot be accepted in any way,” he said.
