Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said that now no criminal gets acquitted now after committing a crime.
But a vested quarter is spreading propaganda against the country and the government through social media, Quader added.
On the other hand, he said that BNP had introduced the culture of impunity in the country during its reign as the present government replaced it with the culture of justice.
BNP had introduced the culture of impunity in the country but the present government is trying to get out of it, he told a virtual press briefing from his official residence.
Quader said the government has taken a strong stance against irregularities, graft and social offences.
The government’s stance was reflected as it has already promulgated an ordinance incorporating a provision of death penalty for rape, he said.
The AL general secretary said if the provisions of the law are strictly enforced, the perpetrators will fear and all these heinous crimes would be brought under control.
He urged the people from all walks of life to get united and stop sheltering criminals and block their political refuge forever.
