Amra Muktijoddhar Sontan, an organisation of offsprings of freedom fighters in the country, has urged the ruling Awami League-led government to announce the children of anti-liberation forces disqualified from getting the government jobs.
The leaders of the organization came up with the call while addressing at a rally held in front of the National Press Club in the capital on Saturday (today).
Pointing to the government, ‘Amra Muktijoddhar Sontan’ President Sajjad Hossain said: “Government has also to preserve thirty percent quota for the freedom fighters and their offsprings in the government recruitment processes.”
The platform also urged the government to form a body for the implementation of the quota system, demanding quota from the preliminary test of Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS).
“The Jamaat-Shibir politics should be banned for the sake of security of the country,” he also observed.
Freedom fighters, who fought during the country's Liberation War in 1971, have, earlier, announced a grand rally to be held on April 24 at the now iconic ‘Prajanma Chatttar’ at Shahbagh in Dhaka, protesting the recent quota movement.
These protests and demand for quota reform is actually a conspiracy against the country’s freedom fighters, war of liberation, sovereignty and stability, they claimed.
Former Chairman of Bangladesh Muktijoddha Sangsad Kendriya Command Council Principal Abdul Ahad Chowdhury made the announcement at a press conference held at the National Press Club in the capital on April 16.
“The quota protesters have insulted the war of liberation and the freedom fighters in the name of the movement,” the written statement reads.
He urged the freedom fighters, their descendants and the countrymen to resist the “conspiracy” with united efforts.
