PM asks AL men to intensify vigilance to maintain communal harmony

UNB, Dhaka
PM asks AL men to intensify vigilance to maintain communal harmony

Describing the recent Cumilla incident as very unfortunate, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday asked the Awami League leaders and activists to intensify their vigilance  to maintain communal harmony across the country.

“Communal harmony will have to be maintained. Our leaders and activists will have to intensify their monitoring in every area,” she said while opening the newly constructed office building for Awami League’s Cumilla City Unit virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.

Sheikh Hasina, also the AL president, also asked her party leaders and activists to take initiatives for holding ‘peace conferences’ and ‘peace processions’ so that no conflict occurs and people from all religions no matter whether they are Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Buddhists could live in a decent manner on this soil.

She said what happened in Cumilla is very unfortunate. “Islam never allows disgracing other religions. Alongside respecting one's own religion, one has to show respect to others’ religions as well,” she said.

He said if the religion of other communities is defamed, it ultimately demeans own religion. “If we analyze the Cumilla incident we would see that our holy Quran was defamed while going to undermine other religion, which is very unfortunate,” she said.

The Prime Minister urged people not to take law into their own hands. “If anyone commits an offense, the perpetrators would have to face justice no matter who he or she is. Our government would try them,” she said.

She said the Prophet (SM) asked not to do excess over the religion. “Everyone will have to know, remind and follow it,” she added. 

Focusing on her government’s development activities for Cumilla, Sheikh Hasina said she has taken a decision to upgrade Faridpur and Cumilla as two new divisions after the names of two major rivers – Padma and Meghna.

The PM said she will form Cumilla division after the name ‘ Meghna’, while Faridpur ‘Padma’.

LGRD Minister Tazul Islam, AL organising secretary Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapon and local Awami League MP AKM Bahauddin and other local AL leaders joined the virtual the function from the new office building.
