Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said, “There are no Taliban and militants in Bangladesh. There are some forces that create anarchy. In addition, some terrorist forces have tried to destabilize the country by appearing under different names at different times.”
The minister told reporters on Saturday after the inauguration of a super market in Baishmile area of Savar.
The Home Minister further said, “There are many small terrorist groups in Bangladesh. But they have no power to create chaos. Bangladesh is a country of peace.”
“The Taliban have come to power in Afghanistan at the hands of various major powers. And Kabul is far from Bangladesh. So it has no effect in Bangladesh,” he added.
State minister for disaster management and relief Dr Enamur Rahman, and Savar upazila nirbahi officer Md Mazharul Islam were also present, among others, at that time.
