BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday said that the moral values were decaying in society and none were feeling safe in the country.

He made the comments while addressing a meeting commemorating life and works of freedom fighter and former MP KM Hemayetullah Auranga on his 6th anniversary of death organised by KM Hemayetullah Auranga Memorial Council at the National Press Club in Dhaka.

Recalling Hemayetullah as one of his students when the BNP leader was a teacher at Dhaka College, he said that Hemayet was active in anti-Ayub movement and then after liberation he fought for establishing people’s rights with honesty and integrity.

The spirit for bringing a positive change in society and the efforts for taking a nation to the way of democracy, to a large extent, are absent now.

‘Our values, as if, are decaying. It is not only happening in Bangladesh but also all over the world,’ he said.

He alleged that the country had become a vulnerable country for living as people here did not feel safe as the government was busy ensuring its own protection by indulging in widespread corruption for their self-protection.

Referring to a Bangla daily that carried out a survey on jurist Shahdeen Malik’s recent comment that there is no security of citizens in the country and 93 per cent people supported it, he said, ‘This means people think they’re not safe in the country, and the state has failed to ensure their protection.’

Presided over by the memorial council convener Habibur Rahman Habib, the programme was addressed, among others, by BNP’s assistant education affairs secretary Helen Zerin Khan and assistant organising secretary Shahidul Islam Babul.
