Prime Minister's Information & Communication Technology(ICT) Advisor Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Friday called for upholding 'Joy Bangla' in its true perspective for consolidating a national unity of all pro-liberation forces for translating into reality the ideals and spirit of the War of Liberation.
Joy stressed on the need for consolidating national unity through upholding the National Flag, National Anthem and the inspiring slogan 'Joy Bangla' of liberation war, for attaining a developed and prosperous Sonar Bangla as was the dream of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
"All pro-liberation forces have to be united sinking all differences if there any among them that is very essential for materializing the hopes and aspirations of the people who fought the bloodiest war of the contemporary history to attain independent Bangladesh", PM, s' ICT Advisor told a programme organized by youth organization Suchinta Bangladesh at a city hotel on Friday.
Suchinta Bangladesh Chairman Mohammad A Arafat made welcome speech while Barrister Turin Afroz, War Victim Ferdoushi Priyobhashini, wife of martyred Freedom Fighter Nasrin Chowdhury and Liberation time National Cricket Team member Rafikul Islam spoke, among others, at the event.
The young ICT expert Joy said , "It is not possible to reach any consensus with those who opposed our independence during the War of Liberation in 1971."
"I am categorically speaking that Awami League will never reach any consensus with Rajakar, Al-Shams and Al-Bador as they committed heinous crimes including killings and rapes during the War of Liberation. So, we cannot sit with them," he added. "Members of the civil society are vocal to forge a national unity. But it is not clear what sorts of national unity they want," he said adding, "Intention of our civil society to form a national unity is politically motivated."
People of the country should remain alert against any conspiracy as anti-liberation forces are still active to hamper development process in the country and jeopardise our hard earned independence and sovereignty.
