BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam AlamgirBNP is profoundly distressed at the turning back of Lord Carlile from Delhi airport.
We are shocked as to why BNP chairperson, Khaleda Zia’s British lawyer was sent back from Delhi airport, decried BNP secretary general, Mirza Fakhrul Islam.
This sort of act is discordant with the freedom of thought as practised by India, the world’s biggest democracy, he observed.
We feel that Lord Carlile wanted to hold a press conference in Delhi to protest the illegal incarceration of Khaleda Zia in Bangladesh and, highlight it as an act of vendetta, impeding democratic practices, opined the veteran politician.
“He came to India since Bangladesh did not give him a visa.”
He further expressed his conviction that the free world would support the movement of the people of Bangladesh against the current autocratic tyranny.
The BNP secretary general made the observations in a statement signed by party office secretary, Belal Ahmed.
On Tuesday night, Lord Carlile was sent back from Delhi airport. Failing to get a visa for Bangladesh, he had plans to talk to the media in India.
BNP legal team was visibly active over the trip of the British lawyer and two days earlier, BNP lawyer, barrister Kaiser Kamal went to India.
Reportedly, BNP activists have said that Lord Carlile’s trip was directed from London.
