The Chief Guest, Emeritus Professor Serajul Islam Choudhury appreciated ICSB for organizing such a patriotic event. In his passionate speech delivered in the tale of Bangladesh and its birth from the 1947 India Pakistan partition. That partition resolved the crisis of 52% Muslims and 48% Hindus and give rise of another crisis of regional discrimination of East (56% Bangle spoken) and West Pakistan (44% Urdu and other language). We achieved our Independence from suppressor East Pakistan and moving forward from our own. However, still we have a new form of discrimination which is class discrimination. 20% people of Bangladesh getting most of the facilities while remaining 80% are still not able to achieve standard life of living. He also indicated that we need to work for improving the drug situation, violence against women, suicide, cultural practice and negligence of worker class.
