Ganajagaran Manch will besiege the Pakistani High Commission in Dhaka on January 20 in the demand of severing all ties with Pakistan for its recent audacity with a Bangladeshi diplomat.
Manch spokesperson Imran H Sarkar came up with the ultimatum at a rally on Friday at Shahbagh intersection in the city. Imran said they will gather at Gulshan-2 roundabout at 3pm on January 20 and march towards the Pakistani High Commission to beige it. “However, if the government can take any step to meet our demand, we’ll consider our programme,” he said.
Imran alleged that Pakistan is trying to turn Bangladesh into a militant and ineffective country through instigating incidents like clash in Brahmanbaria and killing of foreign nationals.
Later, the Manch activists brought out a torch rally which ended at the starting point after parading Dhaka University’s TSC. Earlier, Pakistan urged Bangladesh authorities to withdraw its diplomat Maushumi Rahman without citing any reason, according to UNB. –Mithun
