Bangladesh – A Country of Communal Harmony

There is no denying the fact that Bangladesh is a homeland of communal harmony. People of different castes have achieved independence from foreign rule and become an independent and sovereign country on 16 and creeds live here. The socio-cultural setup of this country is best suited to communal harmony. 

This country December 1971. The constitution of this dear land safeguards secularism for all classes of people irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Bangladesh has a rich cultural heritage. 

Apart from religious festivals, the country shares the most common traditions and customs almost everywhere other than hilly and tribal culture. The ethnic people have their own cultural heritage. The tribal groups of people mostly living in the hilly areas celebrate their own socio-religious festivals. Being a Muslim-majority country, Bangladesh believes in secularism since its inception. The Hindus, the Buddhists and the Christians live in peace and amity. Truly speaking, Bangladesh is a model for other countries in respect of communal harmony. In our country, communal harmony is the bonding of one community with another.

Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adha, Durga Puja, Maghi Purnima, Prabarana Purnima, X-mas Day etc. no longer belong to a particular religious community only, rather they have become the national festivals of the country where people of all walks of life enjoy all the festivals of all religions. Religious festivals are being observed with enthusiasm and due solemnity here. 

Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha are the main festivals of Muslims. Eid-ul-Fitr is followed by month-long fasting. People of our country observe these two religious festivals with religious fervour sharing their joys with one another. The country takes a festive look on these occasions. Durga Pua is the greatest festival of the Hindus. It is an old festival which is observed traditionally in our country.

Besides, the Buddhists observe Maghi Purnima and Prabarana Purnima while the Christians observe X-mas. Through the observance of the religious festivals, people of different caste, creeds and religions greet one another sharing a bonding of universal brotherhood. In fact, Bangladesh is proud of its communal harmony. 

It has attained the status of a non-communal country in the world. It is a democratic country. Freedom of speech and freedom of movement are key to democracy. Democracy safeguards secularism. Last but not the least, communal harmony and amity are the stepping stone to a free, liberal and democratic country.
