President Abdul Hamid on Tuesday called for consolidating the country’s communal harmony to promote peace and prosperity. “Bangladesh is a country of communal harmony. I expect that countrymen irrespective of religions and opinions will play proper role in national development by maintaining tradition of communal harmony,” he said. The President’s remarks came at a reception he hosted for the members of Buddhist Community at Bangabhaban to mark Buddha Purnima, the biggest religious festival of the community. The President said Gautam Buddha had disseminated ideals of equality and friendship for establishing a peaceful world. “I believe, the idealism of Buddha can play important role in checking degradation of values and establishing peace in the society in this intolerant world,” Abdul Hamid said. State Minister for Chittagong Hill Tracts Bir Bahadur Ushwe Sing, Buddhist religious leaders including Satya Priyo Mohathero, ambassadors and high commissioners of different Buddhist-majority countries including Thailand, Sri Lanka and Bhutan, representatives of various international organizations and professionals of Buddhist community attended the reception. The President and his wife welcomed the guests and exchanged greetings with them. – UNB
