Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given the following Message on the occasion of the International Day of Peace:

“On the solemn occasion of the International Day of Peace, on behalf of the Government and the peace loving people of Bangladesh, I join the international community in renewing our unwavering commitment to peace and security all around the world.

This year’s theme ‘End racism.Build peace’ stresses the importance of fighting against all kinds of racism, racial discrimination, and xenophobia, and promoting peace through tolerance, inclusion, unity, and respect for diversity. Bangladesh proudly identifies itself as a land of diversity and harmony. Our Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman firmly believed in equal rights and social justice as the cornerstone for building a peaceful world. Following his legacy, We, as a nation, have always stood firm to realize equal rights and treatment of people irrespective of their race, religion, caste, and gender. Communal harmony, democracy, peace, and development are, therefore, the core of our government policies and programs in the country.

This is indeed an occasion to renew and redeem our pledge to ensure a stable and peaceful world, as envisioned by the UN Charter. In an increasingly interconnected world, the absence of peace anywhere is a threat to peace all over. We have witnessed how the recent conflicts have plunged the world into collective uncertainty and how innocent people all around the world are suffering amidst growing food insecurity, drought, and economic crisis. It is, therefore, of paramount importance to understand what afflicts our people, especially our women and youths, and to try to feel their needs and aspirations with empathy. A democratic, inclusive and participatory environment is absolutely critical for peace to prevail in any society. At the same time, there needs to be sustained investment in peace, tolerance, and harmony by promoting quality and transformative education and a sound cultural orientation.

Today, as we observe this auspicious day, we recollect how atrocities and human rights violations fueled by racial discrimination, xenophobia, and hate speech forced more than one million Rohingyas to flee their homeland and take shelter in Bangladesh. As the crisis entered its sixth year, the international community may take it as an example to address the root causes behind conflicts and highlight the importance of the elimination of racism for sustainable peace.

Let us reaffirm our commitment to foster respect for equality and diversity in societies and circulate the message of peace by taking collective measures against racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and intolerance. Let us join hands to promote national and international peace by strengthening partnerships, respecting the principles of the UN Charter, implementing a culture of dialogue, denouncing violence, and resolving all problems peacefully.

Joi Bangla, Joi Bangabandhu

May Bangladesh Live Forever.”
