Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday reiterated her government's position that Bangladesh doesn't need any foreign advice in resolving the ongoing violence.
"We are capable of resolving the problem as we had solved such problem in the past," she added.
She said that there was no reason to request for foreign advice to resolve the violence. We have things under our control.
The Prime Minister made the remarks while addressing the inaugural session of a 3-day programme organized by International Mother Language Institute (IMLI) in observance of the Language Martyrs Day (Shaheed Dibash) and International Mother Language Day in the capital.
Sheikh Hasina called upon the conscious
citizens to unite to raise their voices and resist the ongoing violence. Terming the current arson attacks of BNP-Jamaat alliance on innocent people as devils' acts in the guise of human beings, she questioned, "How could a human being burn alive another human being? It's not politics but sheer homicide, which we can't allow to continue."
Sheikh Hasina said the country is now passing through a manmade disaster which is not a common phenomenon but an attack on the sovereignty, language and the very existence of the nation.
Laying importance on creating awareness in every person against the ongoing violence of BNP and Jamaat alliance, the Prime Minister said Bangladesh became a role model of development for its rapid economic progress.
Eminent educationist and litterateur Selina Hossain presented the keynote paper of the seminar titled "Bhasha Andolon Theke Antarjatik Matri Bhasha Dibas: Nareer Progya" (International Mother Language Day from Language Movement: Wisdom of Womenfolk".
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid was in the chair while Education Secretary Nazrul Islam Khan and Director General of the IMLI Dr Jinnat Imtiaz Ali also spoke on the occasion.
