Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Thursday said fight against communal forces will continue aiming to build Smart Bangladesh.

“Our fight against communal evil forces is going on. This fight will continue to build Smart Bangladesh,” he told the reporters after paying homage, on behalf of the AL, to the then Chief Minister of undivided Bengal Sher-e-Bangla AK Fazlul Huq on the occasion of his 61st death anniversary.

Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said communal evil forces are still putting their clutches on the Bangladesh’s politics and “today we are non-communal and humanist spirit united against the communal forces”.

“Our goal is to build Smart Bangladesh by fighting those (communal forces) under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” he added.

About the remarks of BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir over the role of new President in resolving ongoing political crisis, the AL general secretary said President Mohammed Shahabuddin is a Bangalee by heart and he believes in the spirit of democracy and patriotism.

“He (President) is a follower of Bangabandhu's ideology. I want to say it about him that he would prove the rest by his works,” he said.

About Sher-e-Bangla, Quader said Fazlul Huq was a true Bangalee and the chief minister of the undivided Bengal.

Sher-e-Bangla presented the historic Lahore Resolution in 1940, while he had given relief to the debt-ridden peasant society of Bengal by forming the Debt Arbitration Board, he said.

“When we recall Sher-e-Bangla, we remember his contribution…we remember Sher-e-Bangla, as a non-communal nationalist and humanitarian leader, with respect.

He worked in a humanistic non-communal spirit,” the AL general secretary said.
