Describing elite force Rab as a “brand name for peace” in villages, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md. Shahriar Alam on Sunday said this institution should not be maligned which helped the country contain militancy.
“Please don’t try to malign this institution on which we rely heavily,” he told reporters at a media briefing at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, apparently referring to the US sanctions imposed on Rab in last December.
He also said, “You go to villages and you will see Rab is a brand name for peace. Rab is a brand name where you will get justice and Rab is a brand name for anti-terrorism activities.”
In the past, the state minister said, Rab had been established on the recommendation of different countries and it has over the years become well-organized and strong with training from a number of countries.
