Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Saturday said Al Jazeera channel has lost its credibility for providing fabricated and false information.
“They provide wrong information,” he said while talking to reporters after attending a programme organised at the Army Stadium as part of the celebrations of the birth centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Mentioning that they know Sheikh Hasina very well, the minister said she is taking the protection of SSF only now during her 45-year political career. “She had no bodyguard anytime. But there (in the Al Jazeera report), they said one was her bodyguard after posting his picture. This kind of false information can’t be tolerated.”
He said the news channel has lost its credibility when it said 3 lakh people were martyred instead of 33 lakh.
Momen also said they will investigate if the report is true. “However, we’ll drop it if it’s false.”
