Terming the demand of formation of a commission for in-depth inquiry into the plot of Bangabandhu killing, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Saturday said the demand now has emerged as a 'demand of time'.
"The in-depth inquiry by an independent commission is very much indispensible to let the future generation about the killers, mastermind and others who had created the plot of the carnage," he said.
The minister said this at a discussion on the National Mourning Day, 2019 organized by 'Muktijudder Chetonar Sangbadik Forum,' a platform of pro-liberation journalists, at Jatiya Press Club here.
"Names of the Bangabandhu killers, masterminds and connivers should be unmasked for the new generation," the minister said adding otherwise the new generation would remain in dark about the history.
He agreed with the speakers' demand for formation of a commission to bring all the culprits of Bangabandhu murder to book saying people of the country want to know the real history behind the scene.
Dhaka University former Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Kanak Kanti Barua, President of Institution of Engineers' Bangladesh Abdus Sabur were present as discussants while senior journalist Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury was in the chair.
The Information Minister said the killing of Bangabandhu was not mere "the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman" and rather it was part of a deep conspiracy to foil very existence of Bangladesh as an independent nation.
Dr Hasan said Bangabandhu was killed by the vested quarter comprising local and foreign conspirators who never wanted independent Bangladesh.
