DHAKA, May 28, 2021 (BSS) – Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar said National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam’s message of equity will always remain as a huge inspiration to the national life of Bangalee.
“Practice on Nazrul’s life and works should be further enhanced to uphold the ideology of the poet to the new generation,” he told a virtual discussion marking 122nd birth anniversary of Nazrul Islam at Jatiya Kabi Kazi Nazrul Islam University at Trishal in Mymensingh on Thursday.
Jabbar urged the Kabi Nazrul Institute of the university to play an active role in upholding Nazrul’s philosophy and ideology to the youth.
“Bangabandhu followed the ideology of Nazrul and we followed the ideology of Bangabandhu. That is why Bangladesh has become a non-communal state in the sub-continent,” he said.
Jatiya Kabi Kazi Nazrul Islam University Vice-Chancellor Prof Mostafizur Rahman chaired the virtual discussion while Nazrul Islam’s granddaughter Khilkhil Kazi and Kabi Nazrul Institute Executive Director Mohammad Zakir Hossain and the university’s Nazrul Jayanti Celebration Committee President Prof Ahmedul Bari addressed it, among others.
