Dhaka, BdChronicle:

Coming down hard on those who always say military dictator Ziaur Rahman introduced the multiparty democracy in the country, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the BNP founder made a mockery of democracy.
 
“He [Zia] had tried to confuse the nation. Accepting that, some people appreciated him, but they never think anything deeply for a moment,” she said.

The Prime Minister was addressing a discussion programme organised by Bangladesh Awami League at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) marking Bangabandhu's Homecoming Day.
 
Hasina, also the chief of Awami League, said Zia, in the name of multiparty democracy, had rehabilitated war criminals, given the anti-independence force the chance to do politics and returned the voting rights to war criminals. “This is not the democracy of people…this was the renaming of rehabilitating war criminals.
