Speakers at a meeting on Tuesday urged the people to prevent communal and anti-government conspiracies and raise their voice against evil forces.

They said some vested quarters are patronizing terrorism, plotting against the government by spreading propaganda, operating cultural aggression, circulating misleading and false information about minorities and distorting the Bengali spirit. They called upon all to be aware of such activities.

Speakers made the call at the Executive Committee meeting of Bangladesh-India Friendship Society (BIFS) at its office in the capital. The BIFS protested the fake letter of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi which was circulated through the social media and later a news item was published in some Bangladeshi media. A resolution was adopted at the meeting condemning this propaganda.

AK Azad Chowdhury, President of BIFS said Bangladesh-India Friendship Society is contributing to religious harmony in the two countries. The organization will continue its various activities in future to develop the bilateral relations among the people of two neighboring countries.
