Bangladesh Muktijoddha Mancha, an organisation of the descendents of the freedom fighters, staged protest in the capital on Thursday, demanding a ban on Pakistan cricket team from Bangladesh for hoisting Pakistani flag in the country.
They burned Pakistani flags and demanded immediate removal of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan Papon for his silent role in the incident.
"A few days ago, Pakistan Cricket Team hoisted their national flag while practicing in Bangladesh," said Muktijuddha Mancha President Aminul Islam Bulbul.
"We are saddened by the silent role of Bangladesh Cricket Board even after hoisting of Pakistani flag in Bangladesh. The BCB has betrayed Bangladesh which we have achieved through the supermen sacrifice of 30 lakh martyrs and honor of two lakh mothers and sisters during the liberation war in 1971. It has betrayed 18 crore people of the country."
Al Mamun, General Secretary of the Mancha, said, " In the beginning of the golden jubilee of independence, Pakistan and its collaborators in Bangladesh have proved that they are yet to accept Bangladesh as an independent country. The conspiracy against Bangladesh is still going on."
"We want to make it clear that the government should ban Pakistan cricket team from Bangladesh immediately," he demanded.
He also demanded legal action against the Pakistan cricket team for violating the Bangladesh flag rules.
