Be vocal against unjust acts

PM urges Muslim nations

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday called upon Muslim nations to become vocal against all forms of unjust acts to establish a peaceful society and everlasting world peace.
This would be the best example of Islamic culture for the world community, she said at the inaugural ceremony of yearlong programmes at Osmani Auditorium in the capital marking a declaration.
The declaration was made by Islamic Scientific, Educational and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) stating Dhaka as the “Capital of Islamic Culture of Asian Region for 2012”.
The ISESCO has been making such declarations since 2005 to spread Islamic culture, reinvigorate its principles and ideals, entrench its values, and perpetuate the historical, civilisational and cultural glories of Organisation of the Islamic Conference member states.
Hasina said Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) spread the message of peace and spoke about waging war against injustice and falsehood throughout his life.
“Millions of Muslims in the world having diverse cultures and traditions stand in one confluence with humanitarian and high moral values and today's idea of globalisation is implanted in the widespread idea of unity enshrined in Islam,” she said.
She said Sufi saints spread the message of peace and fraternity, as enshrined in Islam, in this region and the peace-loving people of this soil easily accepted the liberal and humanitarian appeal of Islam in their lives.
Information and Cultural Affairs Minister Abul Kalam Azad chaired the function. ISESCO Director General Dr Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri and Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid also addressed the programme.
