Earlier, a statement of Inter Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) of Bangladesh on 4 November announced the stories recently circulated on social media by a few retired army personnel against honourable personalities and the Bangladesh Army are unrealistic and motivated,
They are trying to confuse the Army members and the people by collecting conversations of dignitaries from various sources and making up stories through cut and paste, constantly tarnishing the image of the country and the force, it said.
Their repeated unruly behaviours justify their status as persona non grata declared by the Army, added the release.
The members of the Bangladesh Army and the country’s people do not believe in these stories or statements as those are fictional and devoid of morality. They reject them with hatred, according to the release.
“Bangladesh Army is determined to uphold sovereignty and integrity of the country. Created through the great war of liberation on the hand of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, this 49-year-old force is now professionally efficient and mature.”
Every member of the Army is always ready to sacrifice their life with a smile to defend the constitution and sovereignty of the country. Inspired by the spirit of the liberation war, the army personnel are preparing themselves through advanced training and working with great success in the country and beyond borders.
When the prime minister declared coronavirus a war, the Army under her direction provided unprecedented services to the people, which brought wide public appreciation for her as well as the Army, the statement of ISPR added on 4 November.
BFIU sent several letters to the banks on 22 November.In addition, 4 more separate letters have asked for the accounts of 18 more individuals and one individual organization.
