'Pray for Bangladesh and its people'
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina sought the cooperation of all for making the country prosperous, by freeing it from militancy, terrorism, drugs, corruption, hunger, and poverty.
"Pray for Bangladesh and its people. Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman achieved the independence of this country. He had dreamt of building a hunger- and poverty-free Bangladesh, and take the Bangalee nation to a dignified position in the world arena," she said.
The prime minister said this, while addressing an iftar party hosted for war-wounded freedom fighters (FFs), orphans, physically-challenged children, alem-ulema (Islamic scholars), and her family members and relatives, at her official residence the Ganobhaban on Sunday, reports UNB.
Survivors of the August 21 grenade attack, and members of the National Committee for Celebration of the Birth Centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, National Implementation Committee for Celebration of the Birth Centenary of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Memorial Trust were also invited to join the iftar party.
The prime minister wished Ramadan Mubarak, and extended greetings to the people of the country, and the Muslim Ummah throughout the world.
