The Bangladesh Puja Celebration Council and the Dhaka Metropolitan Public Puja Committee have demanded a speedy law for the protection of Sanatan religious people.
The leaders of the two organizations made this claim in an exchange meeting held with the leaders of religious journalists’ organization “Religious Reporters Forum” (RRF) at Dhakeshwari Mandir in the capital on Saturday afternoon.
President of Bangladesh Puja Udaj Parishad J. El Bhowmik said, Awami League’s election manifesto promised to enact and quickly implement laws for the protection of traditional religious people. But that hasn’t happened yet. If the law was passed, would we and the police have to guard the temple today?
He said, if we want to build a non-traditional country in the spirit of Bangabandhu and the spirit of liberation war, this law should be passed quickly to ensure the smooth completion of this big festival of traditional religions.
“We did not fight the liberation war to be identified as a minority community. This thinking is against the constitution of 72′ – he added.
General Secretary of Bangladesh Puja Udjaj Parishad and Professor of Mathematics Department of Dhaka University. Chandranath Poddar said, no state can be built by giving priority to religion. If the state is formed by giving priority to religion, inequality will increase in the society. At some point, militancy and extremism will rise. Did we fight for the liberation of this country? Today we are suffering from budget disparity. In building Bangabandhu’s secular state, all religions should be given equal importance by eliminating religious differences.
Among others, Mahanagar Sarvajanin Puja Committee President Monindra Kumar Nath, former president and former secretary Shailendranath Majumder, adviser Jayant Sen Dipu, women’s secretary Padmavati Devi and member Deepali Chakraborty spoke at the exchange meeting.
The delegation led by RRF president Ubaidullah Badal, general secretary Kamruzzaman Bablu, executive committee member Mohsinul Karim Lebu, former joint editor Muhammad Naeemuddin and Dhaka Reporters Unity executive member Sushant Kumar Saha were present.
