We condemn the July 17 attack on Dhaka-17 constituency candidate Ashraful Alam, popularly known as Hero Alam.  Violence has no place in the democratic process.  We call for a full investigation and accountability for the perpetrators.  Everyone involved in the upcoming elections should ensure that they are free, fair, and peaceful.
