PRIME Minister Sheikh Hasina today said the BDR carnage was staged to embarrass and put the government in peril under a big conspiracy against the country’s nascent democracy, a report run by The Daily Star says.

She made the remarks when ambassadors and high commissioners of eight Asean (the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries called on her at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in the morning.

“Primarily it is being thought that the BDR mutiny was staged to put the democratic government in danger and embarrass it,” the PM was quoted as saying by her press secretary Abul Kalam Azad at a briefing after the meeting.

The envoys are Vietnam’s Nguyen Van That, Thailand’s Chalermpol Thanchitt, Myanmar’s U Phae Thann Oo, Philippines’ Zenaida Tacorda-Rabago, Brunei Darussalam’s Haji Abdul Razak bin Haji Mohd Hussaini, Singapore’s Tan Kok Nam, Indonesia’s Tri Surya and Malaysia’s Hamizan bin Hashim.

The envoys expressed deep shock at the death of the army officers and sympathy for the bereaved families.

The PM’s press secretary said the envoys highly praised the prime minister’s wisdom and foresight in solving the recent BDR crisis peacefully through taking quick steps.

At this critical juncture, the diplomats assured the prime minister of providing all-out cooperation to the government for safeguarding the country’s democracy.

The PM said the brutal incident of Pilkhana stunned the nation and the deaths of the highly educated and talented army officers are irreparable loss to the nation.
