Bangladesh's long legacy of communal harmony must be maintained in the greater national interest
Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim on Wednesday said that those who want to disturb communal harmony in peaceful Bangladesh will not be spared.
He said: "A vested quarter is hatching conspiracy for political gain. No such attempt was successful in the past and none will be spared for the recent incidents. They will be dealt with iron hands."
The minister was talking to reporters after attending a skill development workshop for newly appointed scientific officers at the conference room of Bangladesh Livestock Research Institute (BLRI) in Savar as the chief guest.
"Bangladesh has a long tradition of communal harmony and it must be maintained in the greater national interest," he added.
With BLRI Director General Md Abdul Jalil in the chair, the workshop was attended, among others, by Fisheries and Livestock Secretary Raunak Mahmud.
