The government wants to put Bangladesh to its dreamt position with collective effort from people of all faiths

Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud has said no religion supports creating conflicts among people.

He made this remarks while visiting a Saptami discussion of the Sharodiya Durga Puja at JM Sen Hall on Sunday in Chittagong, reports UNB.

Dr Hasan said: “The aim of all religion is to serve the people, and create harmony among them. The country, as well as the whole world will be peaceful if we practice our respective religions, and not get swayed by misinterpreted religious ideologies.” 

 “We want to put Bangladesh to our dreamt position with collective efforts from people of all faiths, including Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and the Christians,” he added. 

Hasan, also the ruling Awami League's publicity and publication secretary hoped that the discussion's findings will be used to take Bangladesh to the highest position by consolidating the existing communal harmony further.

He also said, Bangladesh was born under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman to emerge as a non-communal state. 

“We, who do politics of AL, are Bangali at first, and then comes our religious identity. However, there is a section in our country, who put religion first as their identity, and suffer from a dilemma whether they are Bangali or Bangladeshi," Dr Hasan said.

Assistant Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Anindya Banerjee delivered the welcome speech in the discussion with Bangladesh Puja Udjapan Parishad (BPUP) Chittagong City Committee President Advocate Chandan Talukder in the chair.

Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) Panel Mayor Chowdhury Hasan Mahmud Husni, Chittagong University (CU) English Department Chairman Sukanta Bhattacharjee, Trustee of Hindu Dharmiya Kalyan Trust Rakhal Das Gupta, Ranguniya Upazila AL General Secretary Engineer Shamsul Alam Talukder, Vice President of Mahanagar Puja Udjapan Parishad Lion Dilip Ghosh, General Secretary Prokash Das Asit, and Advocate Nikhil Kumar Nath addressed the discussion as special guests.
