KHALEDA FIRE 2Senior Correspondent,

There is no difference between the activities of BNP-led coalition and terrorist outfits like Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as both burn people alive, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said.

Speaking at the meeting of Awami League’s Working Committee on Friday, she also said she could not differentiate between the activities of BNP chief Khaleda Zia and Jamaat-e-Islami.

main011Citing the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria video that showed a captured Jordanian pilot being burnt alive in a cage, the Awami League president said, “A lot of money is needed to make petrol bombs. Khaleda Zia is spending the money to kill people.”

At least 50 people have been killed in violence during the blockade, most of them burnt alive in fire bomb attacks.

“Her (Khaleda) perception of good and evil has been diluted. She has gone mad,” the prime minister remarked.

She said her government would take steps to ensure security and welfare of the people of Bangladesh.

“For this, I steadfastly need help and support of the people.”

“Please do not destroy the lives of 1.5 million students. Ensure that the students do not have to take the exams in panic.

“Please let them sit the exams in peace. Don’t disturb them during the tests,” she said.

“Please stop now, start it some other time,” she added.

Hasina also said her government would keep leading Bangladesh on the path of development by tackling ‘terrorism of the BNP-led coalition’.

“Khaleda does not even feel for the mothers whose children are burnt alive..

“What kind of movement is this that has no involvement of people?” she asked.

10959649_494753993995668_4183816607022701490_nThe prime minister wondered ‘how many bodies would satisfy Khaleda’.

About a dialogue, Hasina said, “I was humiliated after I called her up. Would those self-styled intellectuals who give lecture on the TV talk-shows initiate talks with her had they been insulted?”

She termed Khaleda a ‘tough mother’. “She didn’t even take the body of her son to her house. Instead of saying prayers, she came down 15 minutes after the arrival of the body.”

Khaleda’s younger son Arafat Rahman Coco died of cardiac arrest in Malaysia last month.

“She should have been in prayers. But when she came to see her son it appeared that she was all dressed up and got make-up akin to a heroine,” Hasina quipped.

“How can a person who does not bemoan the demise of her own son will feel the pain of other people?” she asked.

“Wasn’t there a single gentleman who could call me ins?” Hasina wondered, referring to her being turned away from the gates of the BNP chief’s office when she had gone to visit her bereaving arch rival.

“She went to Singapore for another reason. She could not be seen on the first day. Later she was seen shopping on a wheelchair pushed by Falu (her advisor Mosaddek Ali),” Hasina said.

“I have that photo. I can give it if someone wants,” she added.

burntThe prime minister also congratulated the Bangladesh football team on beating Thailand to proceed to the Bangabandhu Gold Cup final.

“Our boys played magnificently,” she said.

After the meeting of the Awami League working committee, General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam ruled out any possibility of talks with the BNP.

“No talks with terrorists,” he declared.

“The government will firmly tackle the saboteurs,” he added.

The Awami League leader also said the BNP’s movement was not for ‘snap polls under a neutral caretaker admission’.

“It is a ploy to make the country infested with terrorists like Lebanon or Syria,” he said.

    I have already mentioned in some of my own comments earlier that there is virtually no difference between the activities of ISIS in the Middle East and BNP in Bangladesh. As far as they are concern, human lives have no meaning or no value to them. They want power and control at any cost, and losing a few lives efforts mean nothing to them. Incidentally, the main power behind the BNP and its activities is Jamaat. They have tactfully kept their name out of the picture and controlling the whole operation in the name of BNP. If they succeed, both Khaleda and her idiot son in UK will disappear and they will takeover full control of what BNP will achieve.
    There is a rumor in the air that the going to have a talk with BNP and negotiate for a settlement. Instead of giving my own comments I can only point out to the activities in the Middle East and what they are doing for a settlement. The European and the Arab countries up there is doing nothing because they do not trust them and all the countries together they are going to crush the ISIS completely.
