Jamaat-Shibir men are killing people as per their plans and creating anarchy in a bid to thwart the move for trying the war criminals and banning religion-based politics, leaders of the ruling grand alliance said at a public meeting yesterday.
They said the murder of Rajshahi University's Chhatra League activist Faruk Hossain was a part of Jamaat's master plan.
The leaders argued that Jamaat-Shibir men have no right to do politics following cancellation of the fifth amendment of the constitution.
Speaking as the chief guest, Jute and Textile Minister Abdul Latif Siddiki stressed strengthening the unity of the alliance at grassroots level in order to fight the anti-liberation forces and the Islamist militants.
The government is facing difficulty in dealing with the chaos at different parts of the country, as there are elements of Jamaat-Shibir among police and government officials.
Lawmaker Rashed Khan Menon blamed Jamaat chief Matiur Rahman Nizami for masterminding the RU murder.
He said the government must try the war criminals foiling all conspiracies against it.
Lawmaker Hasanul Haque Inu said Jamaat has two faces, sometimes they kill people themselves and sometimes they hire militants to kill others.
"They (Jamaat) fought with the countrymen openly in 1971 and they began an undeclared war in 1975. Now we have started a war to save the country's politics from those conspirators."
Lawmaker Fazle Hossain Badsha, AL central Organising Secretary Abu Sayeed Swapan, AL leader Akhtar Jahan, city Jatiya Party President Durul Huda, district JSD President Mujibul Haque Baku and Samyabadi Dal leader Lutfar Rahman also spoke.
Rajshahi mayor and city grand alliance Convener AHM Khairuzzaman Liton presided over the meeting.
