On last 5th January, Thursday, UK BNP lead 20 party alliance has staged huge protests in front of 10 Downing Street handing a memorandum to the British Prime Minister terming January 5, 2014 election as Democracy Killing Day.
The protests that started from 1pm to 4pm were shrouded in the slogan by protesters and activists from different parts of the UK. During this time they protested illegal government’s votes stealing by displaying placards, festoons. UK BNP president MA Malique chaired and led by general secretary Koysor M Ahmad, Jamat spokesperson Barrister Abu Bakar Mulla, and hundreds of UK leaders including UK Jubo Dal, Volunteers Party, Lawyers Forum, JASAS and women’s party participated in the protest rally.
BNP’s International Affairs Secretary Mahidur Rahman said, our protests against Sheikh Hasina’s extreme humanitarian, immoral and autocratic behavior. People of Bangladesh can’t exercise their democratic rights due to torture, that’s why we are protesting. In the unlawful elections of January 5, showing win in 154 seats uncontestedly, the illegal Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina established BAKSHAL burying democracy. He urged for formation of a strong neutral election commission on the basis of the consensus of all the parties.
UK BNP president MA Malique said in his speech, “As long as Sheikh Hasina will hold illegal power, we will build resistance against her.” Sheikh Hasina is using the forces in order to suppress opposition leaders and activists, which should use to safeguard the country’s independence, sovereignty, public life and peace and order. Sheikh Hasina violates the rights of the people of Bangladesh by grabbing the power of the voting rights of the people. So we are protesting and organizing gathering in the holy land of democracy in Britain.
General Secretary Koysor M Ahmad said that since the capture of power, the fascist government killing, abusing and torturing the opposition leaders and activists more than the 1971 war of liberation. No government could survive with torture and persecution, nor she can continue. Illegal government has crippled the economy through corruption. The people of Bangladesh will pull her out of power.
Former Jamaat leader and journalist Mahboob Ali Khansur, human rights activist Faridul Islam, former Jamaat-e-Islami leader Muhibullah and Shahidul Islam took part in the demonstrations.
The speakers said that our movement would continue until the right to vote for the people of Bangladesh and the democratic environment is coming back. To make the current illegal government power longer, BNP Jamaat leaders are being tortured to death.
