Children need to be raised in a manner that ensures they become fearless citizens who do not compromise on justice or the fight against repression, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Chairman Kazi Reazul Hoque said on Monday.

He made the comment during a discussion titled “Bangabandhur Jibondorson: Jatiya Shishu Dibosh,” held at the NHRC auditorium in Kawran Bazar in the evening.

Each and every child needs to learn from the life of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the NHRC chairman said.

“Bangabandhu was known for his uncompromising attitude when dealing with inequality and injustice,” he added.

Regarding government initiatives to stop child abuse, Kazi Reazul Hoque said: “The Awami League government has taken several steps to eradicate child abuse, but many challenges remain to be solved. Apart from the government, parents should also be aware of child abuse.”

The NHRC chairman also urged the authorities concerned to include sections on child rights in national textbooks.

“The number of incidents of repression of children is increasing alarmingly,” he said, adding that children’s opinions should be considered in the making of a safe environment for them. 

Novelist and Bangladesh Shishu Academy Chairman Selina Hossain echoed the NHRC chairman in saying that children should learn from Bangabandhu’s attitude.

“Bangabandhu had an uncompromising attitude when dealing with injustice from his childhood. During his student life in Kolkata, he  stood against communal violence. Our children should learn from his lifestyle,” she said.

Child rights activists, representatives of NGOs, and members of the NHRC were among those in attendance at the discussion.
