Call to remove disparity, inequality

Hindu community leaders and right activists have raised their voices against creating religion-based classes in different communities for removing discrimination in society.

People of different religions should not be judged by caste system as all human-beings are equal, they told a discussion at the Central Shaheed Minar yesterday. Avijan, a non-government organization, along with different organizations organized the discussion as part of their campaign for establishing rights of underprivileged people who are treated by caste system of religions.

Distinguished fellow of CPD Dr Debapriya Bhattacharya, President of Avijan Minto Kumar Mandal, members of civil society, leaders and activists of different platforms addressed the discussion with Executive Director of Avijan Banani Biswas in the chair.

Dr Debapriya said, "Religion-based discrimination exists in the society….. It affects all segments of the society particularly economic sector because we cannot utilize talents of dalit, harijan and other classes of the people."
