President Abdul Hamid has urged everyone – irrespective of religious affiliation, caste, or creed – to work together to prevent evil activities from deterring the pace of Bangladesh’s development.

 “Evil anti-liberation forces are repeatedly trying to obstruct the country's democratic progress and development process. All these evil activities should be prevented to keep the pace of development uninterrupted,” he said.

The president made the remark while talking to reporters at a reception for the members of the Hindu community, on the occasion of Durga Puja, at Bangabhaban on Friday, reports UNB.

He said that Durga Puja is not only a religious festival but also a social festival.

 "All, regardless of religion and caste, celebrate the festival. This religious and social festival creates a bridge of harmony among people. So this is a universal festival," he added.

 “Though the nation got its independence 47 years ag,o under the leadership of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, we have not yet achieved Bangabandhu’s dream,” he added.

He said all should come forward for the welfare of humanity in addition to performing religious customs.

Mentioning existing communal harmony as a Bangali tradition, President Hamid said the tradition must continue through combined efforts of all.

Abdul Hamid and his wife Rashida Khanom also exchanged greetings with the guests.

Hindu religious personalities, leaders of various puja committees, and Indian High Commissioner Harsh Vardhan Shringla – among others – joined the reception.
