President Iajuddin Ahmed has called upon all irrespective of caste and creed to work together to build a prosperous Bangladesh maintaining the tradition of unimpeachable communal harmony.
“Bangladesh is a bright example of communal harmony in the world. People from all religions live here in great harmony,” he said when a delegation of the World Hindu Federation made a courtesy call on him at Bangabhaban yesterday.
The delegation, led by Federation's Bangladesh chapter President Shib Shankar Chakravarty, apprised the President of the activities of their organisation and their contribution to the socio-economic development of the country.
They submitted a memorandum of their demands to the President who
gave them a patient hearing and assured them of his “all-out cooperation” in the conduct of their activities.
The delegation members were Priyobroto Brahmachari, Rabindra Nath Tribedi, Advocate Bandhu Gopal Das, Satya Ranjan Baroi and Biswanath Chowdhury.
President's Secretary M Sirajul Islam and his Press Secretary Abdul Awal Hawlader were present on the occasion.
