Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said BNP founder Ziaur Rahman and his family had betrayed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the country as well.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Sunday said BNP founder Ziaur Rahman and his family had betrayed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the country as well.

“We know the assassinators of the 1975 carnage. We also know those who patronised the killers and helped them to go abroad. Ziaur Rahman and his family had betrayed Bangabandhu and the country,” he said.

Obaidul Quader, also ruling Awami League general secretary, came up with the allegation while addressing a discussion organized by North South University on its campus marking the 44th martyrdom anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the National Mourning Day.

He said after betraying Bangabandhu and the country, Zia himself became a victim of treachery.

The AL leader said if Zia did not patronise the killers of Bangabandhu, another killing would not take place in 1981 and he would not be killed.

“Awami League men did not kill Zia. He was killed by his close ones,” he said.

The 15 August carnage and the 21 August killings are interlinked, he said, adding Harkat-ul-Jihad leader confessed that as per the instruction of Hawa Bhaban, the outlaw group carried out grenade attack on an AL rally at Bangabandhu avenue here on August 21 in 2004 with a prime target to kill the then opposition leader Sheikh Hasina.
