Sheikh Hasina tells Hindu community members of Bangladesh to be self-confident and not feel themselves like minorities

Dhaka: Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said Hindu Community members of the country should be self-confident instead of feeling like minorities.

Speaking to the leaders of Sri Sri Janmashtami Udjapon Parishad and Bangladesh Puja Udjapon Parishad via video call on Janmashtami, the birth anniversary of Lord Sri Krishna, Hasina said people from all religions will have equal rights in the country, reported bdnews24.

“You [Hindus] have the same rights as I have. So, why should you feel like minorities?” she said.

“You need to think that you are also the citizens of this country with equal civil rights. Never let a sense of inferiority seep into your minds…You need to think you own this country," the Bangladeshi leader said.

“I think if you have this self-confidence, miscreants [won’t be able to target Hindus],” Hasina said, referring to recent communal violence.

“And no one will be able to do harm to us if we remain united," she said.

The Hindu community members across the world are celebrating Janmasthami on Friday.
