Political patrons back up communal outfits: TIB
Executive Director of Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) Dr. Iftekharuzzaman has said that the leading political parties have always shown unwillingness to prosecute communal outfits. Some communal organizations are affiliated with major political parties, he further said. Some decisions like making Islam state religion contradict with the spirit of the Liberation War of 1971 and Bangladesh's constitution, Dr. Iftekharuzzaman stated.

Dr. Iftekharuzzaman made these remarks on Thursday while addressing a virtual press conference.

Dr. Iftekharuzzaman complained that Hindus have been attacked over and over again including recently. Communal organizations which carry out such attacks are backed up by different political parties, he commented. The previous communal assaults and their organizers were not put on trial which is why communal violence is taking place frequently, Dr. Iftekharuzzaman told the audiences. Dr. Iftekharuzzaman called

upon the ruling authorities to execute tough measures against the perpetrators who are responsible for communal mayhem in the country.
