Bangladesh: Protest held demanding arrest of those opposing Bangabandhu's statue
Dhaka, Nov 22, 2020: Various TSC-centric socio-cultural organizations of Dhaka University have organized a human chain demanding to bring under the law those who oppose the installation of the sculpture of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at Dholairpar in the capital.
The event was organized on Saturday afternoon at the foot of the Raju sculpture of the university under the banner of ‘All Socio-Cultural Organizations of TSC’. People of different classes and professions including leaders and workers of different political organizations took part in it.
Expressing solidarity with the program, Awami Juba League publicity secretary Joydev Nandi said, “Bangabandhu's sculpture is not just a sculpture, Bangabandhu's sculpture is a reflection of the whole of Bangladesh, Bangabandhu's sculpture is a reflection of 56 thousand square miles, Bangabandhu's sculpture is our red-green reflection.
Various TSC-centric socio-cultural organizations of Dhaka University have organized a human chain to demand the arrest of those who opposed the installation of Bangabandhu's sculpture. They are bragging from inside the hole. We can't sit still. This is the beginning of every logical movement from Dhaka University. Let's face this radical evil. "
Saad bin Quader Chowdhury, former editor of Daksh's freedom struggle and liberation war, said, "There are sculptures in different Muslim countries of the world. Sculpture and idol are not one thing. Understand the difference between sculpture and sculpture. This difference is not structural, it is conscious. Idols are worshiped through consciousness. On the other hand, a sculpture is a symbol of the history and tradition of the nation.
Demanding the construction of a sculpture of Bangabandhu at Dhaka University in the Mujib Year, he said, "On the occasion of Mujib Year, we demanded the construction of a sculpture of Bangabandhu at Dhaka University on behalf of Daksh. The Vice-Chancellor assured us that he would build a sculpture of Bangabandhu at Dhaka University in the year of Mujib. We urge today's human chain to implement it quickly.
