Bangladesh is a shining example of communal harmony where people of all faiths practice their religions freely and peacefully, said the country's apex trade body of apparel manufacturers Friday.
"It is a right guaranteed by the Constitution of Bangladesh," Faruque Hassan, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), said.
People of all faiths fought together in 1971 to liberate Bangladesh and are still making efforts for the development of the country, he added.
He made the remark following a visit to Sarbojanin Kendrio Kalibari in Gopalganj Friday.
BGMEA Senior Vice-President SM Mannan (Kochi); vice-presidents Shahidullah Azim, Md Nasir Uddin and Khandoker Rafiqul Islam were also present.
The BGMEA president handed over a cheque of Tk3 lakh to Sarbojanin Kendrio Kalibari.
