Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said a ‘Sonar Bangla’ as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be built resisting communal evil forces.
He made the remarks while playing homage to Bangabandhu marking his historic Homecoming Day.
Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, placed wreaths at the Bangabandhu’s portrait in front of the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 on behalf of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, ruling party chief and the party.
Talking to reporters, he said enemies are still out and they are hatching conspiracies even after 50 years into the country’s independence. “They’ll be resisted together with people.”
Later, AL associate bodies and different socio-cultural bodies paid their respects to Bangabandhu.
On January 10, 1972, Bangabandhu returned to independent and sovereign Bangladesh after over nine and a half months of captivity in a Pakistan jail.
Bangabandhu was subjected to inhuman torture in captivity, where he had been counting down the days to the execution of a death sentence that was pronounced against him in a sham trial.
