Mosharraf doubtful about death penalty to curb rape

Terming death sentence for rape as 'eyewash' of the government, BNP Standing Committee Member Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain on Saturday raised question about the fruitfulness of this punishment in the country.

"Will the death sentence curb the rape? No, it would never be effective. When a government itself is an unlawful one, no punishment will bring justice here," said Mosharraf while addressing a human chain in front of National Press Club in Dhaka.

Jatiyatabadi Mohila Dal arranged the programme protesting ongoing rapes and repressions against women and children in the country.

An illegal government has grabbed the state power, claimed the BNP leader, adding that, “They killed the democracy  repeatedly, now they are playing the game of rape. The government only knows how to use the weapons of disappearance, murder, torture, rape and looting."

Mohila Dal president Afroza Abbas chaired the programme while central leaders of the unit Nilufar Moni and Helen Zerin Khan, among others, spoke.
