Political instigation found behind militant attacks: Home minister

Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan today said police found political instigation behind Gulshan and Sholakia militant attacks.

“Those arrested in connection with the attacks had involvement in Jamaat politics. Later they joined different militant groups,” said the minister while responding to a question in a book launching programme organised by Bangladesh Chhatra League, Dhaka North city unit, at Bangadesh Krishibid Institution auditorium.

He said that when the militant groups were becoming active in the country a group alleged that militancy was creation of media.

“Our government is facing all conspiracies strongly,” said the home minister.

“The masterminds behind the attack incidents will be brought to book soon. Like 1971, country’s people have got united at the call of Sheikh Hasina against militancy and terrorism,” he said.

Militancy will be uprooted from the country through the united efforts of country’s people, he added.
