JP wants commission for minorities

JP wants commission for minorities

Jatiya Party (JP) Chairman GM Quader on Saturday put emphasis on constituting either a ministry or a commission for protecting the interests of country's minority communities.

He said, "Either a minority ministry or a minority commission can be introduced in the country to protect the interests of them. It'll also help them in this regard."  GM Quader made the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Sri Krishna Seba Sangha at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the Janmashtami, the birth anniversary of Lord Shri Krishna.

The JP chief said their party will always remain beside the minority communities as they were in the past, and play an effective role both in parliament and on the streets in realizing their justified demands.  

He also said there should not be any conflict and division among communities of different religions as the goal of all religions is to build a society based on justice and fairness.

He further said the religious harmony will remain intact in Bangladesh as major parties here believe in communal harmony. Quader recalled that their party's late chairman and also his elder brother HM Ershad took various steps during his rule in the interest of the Hindu community.

HM Ershad announced a public holiday on the occasion of Janmashtami and formed a Hindu Kalyan Trust to secure their rights and interests, he added.
