The premier was addressing as the chief guest at the graduation ceremony of the Defence Services Command and Staff College (DSCSC) 2016-17 Course at Sheikh Hasina Complex at Mirpur Cantonment on Wednesday.
Sheikh Hasina said militancy and terrorism appeared as a new global phenomenon exposing the entire world including Bangladesh to a crisis.
She also said that her government wants to build Bangladesh as a developed, prosperous and peaceful country in South Asia in the spirit of the Liberation War.
"We do not want any incidents to happen that will impede the country's ongoing development," the PM was quoted by BSS.
Mentioning her government’s massive anti-militancy campaign, Sheikh Hasina said people were being motivated to fight such social menaces.
The prime minister also urged all to play their due role so that children do not get involved in terrorism and militancy and drug addiction.
Ministers, advisers to the prime minister, parliament members, chiefs of three armed services, vice-chancellors of different universities, diplomats and high civil and military officials were present at the function.
