Bangladesh Students’ Rights Council (BSRC) – which spearheaded the quota reformation movement in 2018 – has decided to launch their own political party.

BSRC, alias Bangladesh Chhatra Adhikar Parishad, along with their youth wing, Jubo Adhikar Parishad, and worker affiliates, Sromik Adhikar Parishad, is going to reveal their new party, Gono Adhikar Parishad, soon, announced former Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) vice-president (VP) Nurul Haque Nur.

Nur made the announcement on Tuesday at a program. On this day, one year ago,  Bangladesh Chhatra League carried out an attack on him and his associates at his Ducsu office.

Marking the incident, BSRC brought out a protest procession holding black flag from Central Shaheed Minar which paraded through TSC, Shahbag, and ended at Old Paltan intersection.

Keeping the intersection under blockade for an hour, the forum leaders spoke against “the culture of injustice” which caused severe traffic gridlock at one of the busiest places in the capital.

While addressing the program, Nur said: “The ruling side could not stop us by suing. All the cases against our [main] student wing, youth, and worker wing should be withdrawn. Every time we want to hold a peaceful protest, the associate body of goons of the incumbent government, Chhatra League, Jubo League, carry out attacks on us.”

“We are yet to see any development of justice over the attack carried out by Chhatra League one year ago,” Nur stressed.

“While European Union (EU) and US is pressuring the government from many sides now for breaching human rights, the government stopped giving out permissions for holding rallies and processions,” he remarked.

'Don't seek permission for rallies'

Nur urged all the political parties not to take permission before carrying out any protest procession or doing rallies.

The ex-Ducsu VP said: “If you seek prior permission for your rally or procession from the administration of this autocratic government, then you are acknowledging the law of the autocratic regime by giving them priority, like as though you are bowing your heads in front of them.”

He said they want to implement the spirit of liberation war, establish democracy in this country through the mass-movement of youths.

“In this regard, I am announcing that our new political party Gono Adhikar Parishad, comprising our wings [student, youth, worker and expatriates], will be unveiled soon,” Nur furthered.

While presiding over the protest, acting convener of BSRC Muhammad Rashed Khan, said: “The young generation led by BSRC will appear in state power and do justice with these incidents as well as stop the repressions launched by the autocratic Awami League government.”

The forum also cited the murder of Biswajit Das (a then 24-year-old tailor in Old Dhaka, who was killed by Chhatra League men under day-light in 2012), the Sagar-Runi (the journalists couple) murder in 2012, where the probe report submission with court in that case has been delayed for 76th times and still not submitted, the Sinha murder (retired maj Sinha Md Rashed Khan), in the name of gunfight this year.
