She says terrorism; militancy can never bring welfare for mankind

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged all to remain vigilant and instantly inform law enforcement agencies of any suspicious terror and militant activities in their respective localities.

She said: "I would like to urge the people of the country to remain alert and inform the law enforcement agencies instantly if there is any abnormal activity," on Wednesday.

The prime minister said this in parliament, while strongly condemning the Sri Lanka terror attacks, reports UNB.

Sheikh Hasina also called upon people to refrain from such terror and militant activities. 

"I have no words to condemn such terror and militant attacks," she said, adding that 327 people have so far been killed in the recent series of bomb blasts in Sri Lanka.

Sheikh Hasina said some 40 children, including Zayan Chowdhury, a grandson of Awami League Presidium Member and former health minister Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, were killed in the terror attacks.

"I do not know what they (terrorists) want to achieve through killing innocent people like this. Children are innocent. So, why do they have to lose their lives?

 “Terrorism and militancy can never bring welfare for the mankind, she said.

Noting that Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi fell victim to manmade terrorism, the prime minister said: “Such brutal activities are very harmful to human beings.”

She said: “Islam is a religion of peace, but some people humiliate the religion to the whole mankind carrying out militant activities in the name of Islam.”

She prayed for salvation of the departed soul of Zayan and others who were killed in the brutal attacks carried out on Easter Sunday.

In one of the attacks, Zayan's father Moshiul Haque Chowdhury Prince (Selim's son in-law) was also injured severely and he is now undergoing treatment in a Sri Lankan hospital.

“Prince has not been informed of his son's death yet,” Sheikh Hasina said.
