Action against 'Daily Sangram' for calling war criminal ‘martyr’: Quader

Awami League general secretary and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday said that legal action should be taken against ‘Daily Sangram’ for describing executed war criminal Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Molla as ‘martyr’.

He said while responding to reporters after paying tribute to the martyred intellectuals on the occasion of the Martyred Intellectuals Day on Saturday.

He said, “We’ll talk to the Home Ministry on this matter.”

Quader said that the evil communal power which attacked freedom fighters, Bengalis in 1971, and killed intellectuals, is still spreading poison.

He also said, “It’s our pledge today to prevent and defeat this communal evil power. We’ll take oath to root out the poison of communalism. We’ll unite the nation.”

While responding to reporters about war criminals who are staying abroad, the minister said, “We are looking into the matter and action will be taken on time.”
