Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud today asked whether the remark of Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury recently made favouring Taliban was the statement of BNP or not.
He raised the question while talking to reporters after attending a discussion titled “Violent August 15: Grief Turns into Strengthen”, arranged by Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited (BCSCL), held at Shell Rose and Dale Bhaban in the city’s Bangla Motor area on Thursday evening, marking the National Mourning Day.
Responding to a question, Hasan said establishing peace in Afghanistan is very crucial for regional and global peace, a ministry press release said.
If the peace situation deteriorates or militancy arises in any country of the South Asia region, it is normal that the whole region will be affected, he said, adding “We always expect peace (in the region).”
Hasan, also the Awami League Joint General Secretary, said it was learnt from various sources that enthusiasm was being observed among the militant groups in the region since the Taliban took over Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.
