Hindu-Muslim-Buddhist-Christian collectively achieved the independence of the country, he says 

Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Wednesday said that the people belongs to any community should not be treated as a minority rather everyone is equal in the country.

"Every community -- Hindu-Muslim-Buddhist-Christian -- collectively achieved the independence of the country under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman," he said during Prabarana Purnima celebrations at International Buddhist Monastery in city's Merul Badda area.

Party's Office Secretary Barrister Biplob Barua and Swechchhasebak League General Secretary Afzalur Rahman Babu addressed the program as special guests, with Principal of the Bihar Bhadanta Dharmamitra Mahathero in the chair.

Bangladesh Buddhist Federation President Engineer Divyendu Bikash Chowdhury Barua and General Secretary Bhikkhu Sunandapriya were present on the occasion.
