President: Remain alert against misinterpretation of religion
He made the statement while extending his heartiest greetings to the countrymen and the Muslim Ummah on the occasion of the holy Eid-ul-Azha on Tuesday, reports BSS. "No religion supports militancy and terrorism. The main message of all religions is to ensure welfare of the people," the president said in a reception held at Bangabhaban to mark the second largest religious festival of the Muslims. Islam is a religion of peace, he added. President Hamid urged all to reflect the great principle and teaching of Eid-ul-Azha in social and individual life for establishing lasting peace and prosperity. He said: "We all have to be imbued with the mentality of patience and sacrifice for building a peaceful, geniality and tolerant society through realizing the inner meaning of Eid-ul-Azha." Hamid said Bangladesh is a unique example of communal harmony in the world and the people of all religions have been practicing their religions freely, which is an excellent heritage of Bangladesh. "We have to emulate the teaching of Eid-ul-Azha and the heritage of communal harmony in our social and individual life properly for expediting the national development," he added. The president wished all a happy and prosperous Eid-ul-Azha.
