State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working towards building a non-communal Bangladesh and she got succeeded.

“In this context, Krishna Janmashtami is being celebrated with colorful arrangements across the country. We will not let it be disrupted,” he said in a programme at Dhaka University (DU) marking the Janmashtami while addressing as chief guest.

The discussion program titled ‍‍`Auspicious Janmashtami of Supreme Lord Shri Krishna‍‍` was arranged at Jagannath Hall on Wednesday.

DU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman inaugurated the discussion program.

“Bangabandhu‍‍`s motto was to build a non-communal Bangladesh. After his killing in 1975, the state and the constitution failed to uphold Bangabandhu‍‍`s non-communal spirit. Religious division gradually grew so wide that none of us was safe,” Khalid said.

He added, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina started working to protect from communalism as well as evil powers. She managed to control the situation.”

The state minister said that the philosophy of Shri Krishna is all about humanity. His philosophy is not only for Hinduism but for all religions.

Krishna‍‍`s philosophy will play a further role in building a non-communal Bangladesh, Khalid added.

Dhaka University Teachers Association President Professor Nizamul Haque Bhuiyan, ISKCON Bangladesh Joint General Secretary Gaurang Das Brahmachari, Jagannath Hall Resident Teacher Dr Kalidas Bhakta, Jagannath Hall Janmashtami Celebration Committee General Secretary Ujjal Chandra Roy, Janmashtami Celebration Committee Convenor Devdas Halder, Jagannath Hall Chhatra League President Kajal Das, General Secretary Atanu Burman were present among others at the programme presided over by Professor Dr Mihir Lal Saha, provost of the hall.
