In a statement, Khaleda strongly condemned and protested at the bomb attack by extremists on a concert in an indoor stadium in Manchester of the United Kingdom Monday night.
At least 22 people, including some children, were killed and 59 wounded when a suicide bomber struck as thousands of fans streamed out of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande in the English city of Manchester Monday night.
The BNP chief said extremists did not hesitate at all to stain their hands with blood of innocent people to spoil the world peace and stability.
Khaleda said she was shocked at the incident of casualties of numerous people by extremist bomb attack on a concert in Manchester of UK Monday night.
Such incidents were staging one after another across the world, she said.
‘Any kind of extremism is contrary to humanity and extremists are enemy of the entire humankind,’ read the statement signed by BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
Khaleda, a former prime minister, said Monday’s bomb attack that killed and wounded many people is not only cruel barbarism, this is an ominous signal for the mankind.
She said killing human being by unleashing attack on a peaceful festive function is a coward act.
