Mostaque ordered killings of four national leaders: Railways Minister
05 November 2015, Nirapad News: Railways Minister Md Mujibul Haque said that four national leaders were killed inside the secured place like the Dhaka Central Jail on November 3, 1975 at the behest of usurper-president Khondokar Mostaque Ahmed.
“Khondokar Mostaque declared himself the president of the country hastily after seizing of the state power. Then he realised that he would no longer hold the post of the president if the four national leaders, Tajuddin Ahmed, Syed Nazrul Islam, Captain M Mansur Ali and AHM Quamaruzzaman, would remain alive. So, he ordered the killings of the most trusted associates of Bangabandhu,” he said.
The minister said this while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion in the city. Amra Muktijoddhar Santan, an organisation of the wards of the freedom fighters, organised the discussion at the National Press Club to pay homage to the slain four national leaders marking the Jail Killing Day.
President of the organisation Humayun Kabir presided over the discussion, also addressed, among others, by chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Liberation War Affairs Ministry Captain (Retd) AB Tajul Islam, freedom fighter Anwar Hossain (Bir Protik) and assistant secretary of an Awami League sub-committee MA Karim.
Mujibul Haque said that the August 15 tragedy and the subsequent killings of four national leaders inside the Dhaka Central Jail on November 3 in 1975, the August 21 carnage of 2004 and the recent murder of two foreigners were interwoven.
“The killings that have now been taking place across the country are being carried out at the instruction of BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman from London,” the minister said calling upon the pro-liberation forces to uproot the venomous teeth of the killers with united efforts.
