Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit Chief Monirul Islam said the reason militant groups are targeting youths because their main intention is to make Bangladesh as Pakistan or Afghanistan. 

He made the remark while addressing as chief guest at an Anti-terrorism and Drug related workshop in Brahmanbaria on Friday evening (Dec 29).

Monirul said, “Militants are misleading young generation by providing misinterpretation of religion. No religion on earth supports militancy. Militancy might kill some people but drugs destroy the whole nation slowly. Eradicating drug addition is a job police alone can’t do. A social movement against drug is necessary.”

Deputy Commissioner Rezwanur Rahman, Superintendent of Police Mizanur Rahman, Brahmanbaria municipality mayor Nayar Kabir, Principal of Government Women's College Professor ASM Shafiqullah, District Awami League General Secretary Al Mamun Sarker, female vice chairman Taslima Sultana Khanam of Sadar Upazila Parishad also spoke at the workshop conducted by Brahmanbaria Sadar Circle Additional superintendent of police Rezaul Kabir. 

People of various classes-occupation and students took part in the workshop.
