The day is the celebration of rebirth, new beginning, forgiveness and peace, and renewing relationship with God and the human beings. The Christian community has chalked out different programmes, including decoration of Christmas trees with colourful lights, special prayers, distributions of gifts among children and exchange of pleasantries, to mark the day, reports UNB. The day is a public holiday. President Abdul Hamid will accord a reception to the members of the Christian community in Bangabhaban around 11:45am today. Different law enforcement agency members have been kept on alert at different strategic points in Dhaka and other important places of the country to ensure peaceful celebration of Christmas. Bangladesh Television and Bangladesh Betar along with other private TV channels and radio stations will broadcast special programmes while national dailies publish supplements highlighting the significance of the day. President Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia issued separate messages on the occasion. In a message, the President said: “Bangladesh is a country of communal harmony. All will have to build resistance together against those who want to destroy this tradition to gratify their evil interest.” In her message, Sheikh Hasina said: “In our constitution, the equal rights of people of all religions have been ensured. The people of different religions and community have full freedom to practice their own religious rituals here.”
