President Md Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in separate messages on Sunday greeted members of the Hindu community on the occasion of Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Sri Krishna.

In a message on the eve of the occasion, the president said Janmashtami is one of the major religious festivals of the Hindu community.

Sri Krishna was a symbol of humanity and social reformer whose main philosophy was to forge the bond of true love and harmony among people, removing injustice, repression, persecution and conflicts from society, he said.

According to Hindu religion, the president said, Lord Sri Krishna takes birth in ages in the world to safeguard the religious and good people and annihilate sins and malevolence of people.

“Communal harmony is our great heritage. We will have to keep intact the mutual amity and harmony with our united efforts," the president said.

Welfare of mankind is the essence of all religions, he said, calling upon followers of all religious faiths to work together for national progress through strengthening the bond of fraternity and friendship existing in the society.

Mentioning the global outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, the president said the government is making all-out efforts to check the spread of the deadly virus.
