The Jatiya Party chief warns the future of the nation will become disastrous if arms smuggling continues

Voicing deep concern over the reported involvement of a student leader in arms smuggling, Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Monday urged the government to launch a special drive to recover illegal arms.

“A list of arms smugglers and illegal arms dealers should be prepared immediately to ensure the safety of people,” he said.

In a statement, GM Quader said: “A special force should be engaged in conducting a drive to recover illegal firearms and bringing those involved with arms smuggling under the ambit of law.”

He warned that Bangladesh would turn into a “savage state” if the government fails to stop the smuggling of illegal firearms.

The Jatiya Party chief also said the future of the nation would become disastrous and the law and order situation deteriorate alarmingly if the arms smuggling continued.

“So, the government must take effective steps to prevent the shipment of illegal weapons alongside recovering the illegal arms,” he observed.

Referring to media reports, GM Quader said a student leader of Jashore was arrested recently on charges of arms smuggling from India and supplying them to different districts. He alone sold more than 200 firearms across the country in the last few years.

“Nothing can be more terrible news than this,” he added.

The Jatiya Party chairman said a photo of a model with sophisticated Uzi pistols made in Israel went viral earlier. “This type of weapon is not even there at the hands of the law enforcers. So, panic has spread among guardians in the country.”

On Thursday, police arrested five people, including a member of Bangladesh Chhatra League, from the capital's Darussalam area over smuggling and illegal firearms selling.
