Road transport minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday told reporters in Dhaka that “evil attempts” to destroy the peace and comfort of the public will be resisted.

“Don’t take the government’s liberalism as weakness. Any comments against the spirit of the country’s Liberation War and the constitution will not be tolerated. Any evil attempt to destroy the peace and comfort of general people will be resisted,” he warned.

Quader urged the people who believe in the country’s independence to build a united resistance against all evil efforts.

The minister also said a communal force is creating unwanted debate over the establishment of sculptures of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“Imaginary explanations centering Bangabandhu’s sculpture is a challenge to the spirit of Liberation War and the country’s culture.

“A fundamentalist group is giving misinterpreted explanations regarding the sculptures of Bangabandhu, the architect of independent Bangladesh, to spread hatred among religious people,” he said.

Hence, an iron fist will be used to deal with those who are making ill attempts to create an issue to destroy the country’s religious tolerance, Quader added.
