Red Crescent services to the vulnerable must not be interfered
Former chief adviser to a caretaker government Justice Muhammad Habibur Rahman yesterday said Bangladesh Red Crescent Society's (BDRCS) humanitarian services to the vulnerable people must not face any bureaucratic interference.
Signifying the humanitarian aspect of Bangladeshi people, he said, “Bangladesh has reputation for its corruptibility, political argumentation, but we have the quality of coming to the aid of distressed people”.
Justice Habibur Rahman was speaking as chief guest at a photography exhibition held at Alliance Française de Dhaka in the capital's Dhanmondi.
The day-long exhibition, titled "Mindscape", depicting notable humanitarian activities of Bangladesh Red Crescent Society since its inception in 1971 was organised in observance of the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day yesterday with the theme for this year “Youth on the Move”.
Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS), International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) jointly organised the exhibition, also attended by Vice Chancellor of Dhaka University AAMS Arefin Siddique as special guest, BDRCS chairman and representatives of IFRC and ICRC.
