BNP Standing Committee member, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury has said there cannot be any bigger problem in the country than the people's loss of faith in the judicial system.

"The judiciary is the last shelter of the people," Khasru said at a youth rally organized by Nagarik Odhikar Andolan Forum at the National Press Club on Friday afternoon. "When the government interferes with the judiciary, people suffer from insecurity."

The rally was organized demanding stoppage of state intervention on the judiciary, and the unconditional release of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia.

"The government has naked interference in every aspect of the state," the senior BNP leader said. "Everyone is afraid to talk, because if anybody talks against the state, they are tortured or murdered, or there are enforced disappearances."

That this government was not elected through popular vote, and that Khaleda Zia was imprisoned out of political vengeance, is clear to the rest of the world, Khasru said.

A former minister, Khasru further said: "It is evident that the government is interfering with Khaleda Zia's bail. Otherwise, why would the MPs, and ministers constantly keep on denying of any interference?"

He said the government is using the judiciary to keep Khaleda imprisoned to maintain absolute, and permanent power.

"The people demand Khaleda Zia's unconditional release, and the return to democracy through a fair election," he added.

Advocate of the Nagarik Odhikar Andolan Forum Chairman Sayeed Ahmed Aslam, BNP Joint Secretary General Khairul Kabir Khokon, member of the party's executive committee Abu Naser Mohammad Rahmatullah, BNP leader Sabina Nazmul, Advocate Nipun Chandra Roy, and others were present at the rally.
