We can't ban student politics, BUET can do it : PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said, “If Buet thinks, it can ban (student politics). We will not interfere,” she said responding to query about her stance over the recent demand of banning student politics following Buet student Abrar Fahad’s murder.
The premier, however, ruled out the possibility of banning student politics in the country saying that student politics cannot be prohibited following a single incident.
She was addressing a press conference at her Gono Bhaban residence in Dhaka about the outcome of her recent official visits to USA and India.
PM also promised no political interference in the trial of the Abrar murder suspects.
“I don’t care about political identity when someone commits a crime. A criminal is a criminal to me. We treat them as criminals,” Hasina said.
Media have reported how “drunken BCL activists” bludgeoned Abrar with cricket stumps for six and a half hours last Sunday night. A forensic doctor said he died from excessive bleeding, citing internal injuries.
“Why this cruelty? Why this heinous act? We are taking action against these [culprits]. No doubt they will face all sorts of tough punishments. I don’t care which party they belong to. Criminals must be tried. We don’t wait for anyone to demand justice,” the prime minister said.
