Staff Reporter: A rally of the United States Awami League on the occasion of the 46th anniversary of Bangladesh’s full membership in the United Nations has caused a commotion over the Razakar issue. The former US Awami League organizing secretary and the US Volunteer League leader got into a scuffle at a stage when they went to a rally in front of the UN headquarters in New York on Thursday local time. The atmosphere is calm in the presence of police in tense situations.
After the joyous rally in front of the UN, Mohammad Mohiuddin Dewan, former organizer of the United States Awami League and founder convener of the Volunteer League, addressed former president Siddiqur Rahman and asked why Razakars and BASIC members were present at the event. Mohiuddin Dewan was earlier informed to Siddiqur Rahman why Jamaat and Razakar were led by the United Awami League. Evidence with its member number (440) was even given to formar President Siddiqur Rahman a month ago. Even then, that member of BASIC attended the rally of the United States Awami League. Seeing him, Mohiuddin Dewan questioned President Siddiqur Rahman. He was called to speak but he moved on.
As soon as Mohiuddin Dewan asked the question, Nuruzzaman Sardar, the president of the affiliated organization Swechchhasebak League, got excited and said that fraudsters and thieves could not stay in the United States Awami League. Hearing this, Mohiuddin Dewan became the defendant. At one point, the two men started arguing and using obscene language. Later the environment came under control in the presence of the police. Mohiuddin Dewan could not be reached for comment. “I am not a member of BASIC,” said Nuruzzaman Sardar, president of the Volunteer League. It is the creation of Mohiuddin Dewan. If he typed the letter himself, I would have nothing to do with it. “I have been involved in the politics of the United States Awami League for the last 20 years,” he added. “I protest when Mohiuddin Dewan insults me and my family in front of the UN,” he said.
Local Awami League leaders and activists spoke under the chairmanship of former US Awami League president Siddiqur Rahman and former acting general secretary Abdus Samad Azad. US Awami League leaders Shamsuddin Azad, Mohiuddin Dewan, Abdul Hasib Mamun, Dulal Mia (Haji Enam), Mohammad Solaiman Ali, Shahanara Rahman, US Volunteer League leaders Nuruzzaman Sardar, Syed Golam Kibria Zaman, Kamal Hossain Rakib, Liton and Humayun Kabir was present the rally.
