Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Thursday asked if BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir is mentally sound, as he has started ‘talking nonsense’.
“It seems that Mirza Fakhrul has been suffering from depression. He can be examined by doctors. I really think he needs to have a check up,” he said.
Hasan said Mirza Fakhrul is speaking against that party which led the country’s independence war.
Talking about Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the minister said that Bangabandhu was assassinated at a time when the country was beginning to move towards prosperity.
“But Bangabandhu was assassinated in connivance with those who did not want the country to become independent, the Pakistani evil forces and those who fought for Pakistan,” he said.
Bangabandhu could not fulfill his dream, but under the leadership of his daughter Sheikh Hasina Bangabandhu’s dream is going to be realized, he added.
Hassan said those who have joined forces with the anti-liberation forces and those who rejoice after the occupation of Afghanistan by the Taliban cannot be progressive.
