Reiterating that Khondaker Mostaq and Ziaur Rahman were the masterminds behind the conspiracy of killing Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said that she would never let their objectives be successful.
“I only want that the conspiracies for which the Father of the Nation was killed on August 15 (in 1975), will not be successful. Their target was to make Bangladesh a failed state alongside foiling achievements of Bangladesh’s independence and destroying the ideal of the Liberation War,” she told a memorial meeting on Thursday joining virtually from Ganabhaban.
