National unity

At the beginning of the formation of BNP, the country was divided in different ways. The basis of this division was political belief (left, right, moderate), pro- and anti-liberation forces. As a result, students, teachers, intellectuals, professionals, cultural activists, the military and even the administration were divided. The main basis of the establishment of the BNP was to forget all these divisions and take the country forward together. During Zia and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina , Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's death came first in the country and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina took office. At the same time , the Jamaat-e-Islami, a supporter of a united Pakistan, also became active in politics at this time. Many of their leaders who were out of the country after the liberation war were allowed to come to the country. Note that after the liberation warSheikh Mujibur Rahman's government declared amnesty for all parties and individuals who opposed the liberation war. However, those against whom the four charges of direct murder, rape, arson and looting have been made are not later covered by the amnesty. However, no comprehensive and effective action has ever been taken against them.
