The anti-liberation forces have launched a “war against the state” by creating anarchy and violence against the public, said freedom fighters yesterday. The forces are killing general people as an expression of their hatred against the country itself and the ongoing war crimes tribunals, they added. They said these at a press conference of Sector Commanders Forum, Bijoy 4:31 Mancha, and Muktijuddher Chetona Bastobayon Mancha at Dhaka Reporters Unity. The organisations announced that they would hold an array of cultural programmes to celebrate Victory Day on December 16. “Our principal aim is to rekindle the spirit of Liberation War amongst the youth so that they can resist the anti-liberation forces,” said Dr Sarwar Ali, trustee of Liberation War Museum. On war criminal Quader Mollah, he said, “The country will be free from a black spot by giving the maximum punishment to him. However, as law abiding citizens we believe the verdict can be reviewed.” On behalf of the organisations, SCF Convener Air Vice-Marshal (retd) AK Khandaker announced the Victory Day preogrammes which will begin at 3:00pm at Suhrawardy Udyan Shikha Chirantan. Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan, BTV Director General M Hamid and Sammilita Sangskritik Jote President Nasiruddin Yusuff Bachchu were present at the event.
