Communal forces will be resisted: Hasan

DHAKA, Dec 18, 2020 (BSS) – Information Minister and Awami League
joint general secretary Dr Hasan Mahmud today said communal forces
will be resisted with iron hand.

“Communal forces will not be given a chance to bite in any way and
they will be strictly resisted,” he said.

Hasan was speaking at a memorial meeting on late Major General CR
Dutta Bir Uttam, one of the Sector Commanders of the Liberation War,
at Dhakeswari Temple in the capital, an official press release said.

Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Oikya Parishad and Bangladesh Puja
Udjapan Parishad jointly arranged the meeting.

Hasan said the International and communal forces, who stood against
the country’s independence in 1971, killed Father of the Nation
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman aiming to kill the state —
Bangladesh.

That is why, after 1975, the state started walking backwards,
abandoning the core spirit of establishment of the state, he said.

Noting that the communal forces are still alive in the country, the
information minister said the forces have always been defeated and
will be in the future.

He said Bangladesh sets an example of communal harmony under the
leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Hasan warned that any attempt to create communal violence by
spreading rumors in the country would be handled with iron hand.

Recalling the contribution of CR Dutta to the country’s liberation
war, he said there are many things to learn from the life of Chitta
Ranjan, a patriot, brave, honest and non-communal one.

Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Oikya Parishad central leader
Ushatan Talukder, MP, Dr Nim Chandra Bhowmik, Nirmal Rosario,
journalist Swapan Kumar Saha, president of Bangladesh Puja Udjapan
Parishad Milon Kanti Dutta and general secretary Nirmal Kumar
Chatterjee were, among others, present.
