No Room for Terrorists in Bangladesh

The Government headed by Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia is firmly determined not to allow any terrorist or organised group of terrorists to work in the soil of Bangladesh, Foreign Minister M Morshed Khan told a news briefing at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday. He again ruled out the possibility of the existence of any networks of terrorists in Bangladesh. He also denied Bangladesh having any link with Taliban and Al-Qaeda branded as international terrorist groups. The Foreign Minister observed that the people of Bangladesh who are democratic, moderate and tolerant can never resort to acts of terrorism. “The Bangladeshis were never involved in terrorism in the past, are not involved now and in future will not be engaged in such acts of violence,” Morshed Khan told a questioner. He referred to the recent happening in Bolivia where nine Bangladeshis were held on charge of planning an attack on the American interest there on the basis of the French intelligence reports and said that they were released after they were proved innocent. The Bangladeshis went to the South American country in search of jobs, not for committing terrorism. Full Story
