Washington, DC, 6 August : Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep shock at the two devastating mass shooting in the States of Texas and Ohio in the United States that killed 29 people and injured dozens.
In a letter of condolence to US President Donald J Trump Monday, the Prime Minister, on behalf of the government and the people of Bangladesh, condemned these mindless acts of terror and violence and conveyed deep condolence and sympathy to President Trump and the people of the United States. The full text of the message is given bellow :
“Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and particularly with the bereaved families,” she said.
The Prime Minister said,” We stand by your side at this tragic and trying hours and offer our all-out support to address any kind of terrorism and violent extremism in our two countries and beyond.”
She said, “Terrorists have no colour, race or religion. Their only identity is, they are terrorists.”
Sheikh Hasina said her government has a declared and practiced policy of “zero tolerance against terrorism.” “My beloved father, the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and most of the members of my family were victims of the gravest terrorist attack in the history of Bangladesh on 15 August 1975. I myself survived several acts of terror in my life.”
“At this difficult time, let us redouble our efforts against hate and dogma and recommit ourselves to working together to eliminate the menace of terrorism and violent extremism from our planet and make it a safer place for our coming generation,” said the Prime Minister.
