Strongly denouncing Jatiya Party secretary general Mashiur Rahman Ranga’s derogatory comment on anti-Ershad protester Noor Hossain, Gonoforum president Kamal Hossain on Wednesday warned that people will give a befitting reply to his such autocratic attitude.
In a statement, he said, ‘Such an assertion about Noor Hossain by Ranga, a follower of dictator Ershad and an MP of the current illegal parliament formed through a voter-less election, is not unusual.’
Dr Kamal further said, ‘People will give a reply to such despotic attitude and activities unitedly in the days to come.’
Jatiya Party secretary general Mashiur Rahman Ranga at a discussion on Sunday said, ‘Who was Noor Hossain? An addict... a Yaba user, a Phensedyl taker! Two democratic parties — Awami League and BNP — are overenthusiastic about him. This day is observed as Noor Hossain Day!’
On Tuesday, both the ruling and opposition MPs harshly criticised Ranga in parliament for his offensive remarks against Shaheed Noor Hossain asking him to apologise before the nation.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today accused Ranga of insulting the democratic movement and the pro-democratic people with his comments against Noor Hossain, and asked him to apologise publicly.
