Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Advisor Sajeeb Wazed has said that by enacting the infamous Indemnity Act, BNP founder Ziaur Rahman introduced “a culture of impunity” that ensured no one could seek justice for Bangabandhu’s murder.

“After Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's assassination, BNP founder and country’s first dictator General Zia embraced the killers with jobs in different missions abroad,” he tweeted on Monday night. A documentary was attached to the tweet.

Bangabandhu’s daughters, Sheikh Hasina and Sheikh Rehana, had nothing to do, except shedding tears from overseas, Sajeeb Wazed tweeted.

The daughters continued their struggle from outside the country, he added.

“In 1980, Nobel laureate Sean MacBride along with three eminent British jurists formed the first enquiry commission in the United Kingdom to investigate the murders of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, his family, and four national leaders,” his tweet reads.

“But Ziaur Rahman did not allow them visas to land in Bangladesh, a clear pointer to create a roadblock in fair investigation,” Sajeeb Wazed, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's grandson, wrote.

Of the killers, Rashid was posted in Germany, Dalim in Spain, Noor Chowdhury in Canada, and Rashed Chowdhury in the United States as Bangladesh envoys, he further wrote.

Understanding Gen Ziaur Rahman’s involvement in Bangabandhu's murder is thus no rocket science, Sajeeb Wazed observed.

The National Mourning Day is being observed on August 15.

On this day in 1975, the greatest Bangalee of all time, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members was brutally assassinated.
