In the wake of reports suggesting the involvement of renowned cricketer Shakib Al Hasan with the Nationalist Movement (BNM) ahead of the 12th National Assembly elections, a storm of discussion and criticism has engulfed the political landscape of the country. This development has swiftly become the focal point of national discourse, drawing reactions from various quarters, including political figures and commentators.

Former Member of Jatiya Sangsad, Barrister Rumeen Farhana, who serves as the Co-International Affairs Secretary of the BNP Central Committee, delivered scathing remarks against Shakib Al Hasan during a televised interview on Tuesday night. Farhana lambasted the cricketer, accusing him of being associated with unsavory activities and expressing skepticism about his foray into politics.

In her statement, Farhana expressed disdain over Shakib's purported ambitions for a political career, alleging his involvement in nefarious activities such as match-fixing and links to the casino industry. She derisively referred to him as a "ghost" who seeks to enter Parliament and vie for ministerial positions, despite setbacks in his cricketing career. Farhana's criticism further extended to Shakib's perceived lack of political acumen and alleged familial entanglements in financial scandals.

The remarks made by Barrister Rumeen Farhana reflect a wider sentiment of skepticism and concern surrounding Shakib's reported association with the BNM and his potential entry into the political arena. The timing of Shakib's alleged political maneuvering, amidst reports of BNP Vice Chairman Major (retd) Hafiz Uddin Ahmad's involvement in the formation of the BNM, has added fuel to the ongoing debate.

While these allegations and criticisms have stirred controversy, Shakib Al Hasan himself has yet to publicly address or confirm his affiliation with the Nationalist Movement. Nonetheless, the unfolding situation underscores the intersection of sports and politics in the country and raises questions about the integrity and motives of public figures transitioning into the political realm.

As the discussions intensify and revelations emerge, the political landscape braces for potential shifts and implications stemming from Shakib Al Hasan's alleged foray into the realm of partisan politics.
