Calls for end to injustice at Chhayanaut’s Baishakh event

Organisers of Chhayanaut’s Pahela Baishakh celebrations and visitors have observed moments of silence calling for an end to injustice as Bangladesh is celebrating the Bengali New Year.

Chhayanaut President Sanjida Khatun has briefly mentioned the death of madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi, a case that sparked public anger in the run-up to the Pahela Baishakh celebrations.

Nusrat, 18, was attacked in Feni in reprisal against sexual harassment charges against the religious school’s principal, according to bdnews24.com.

“Families are not protected from torture as a result of the selfish people’s inhuman personal satisfaction. Nobody — from children to the society’s young people — is protected,” Sanjida Khatun said.

She urged people from all strata of society to stand up to injustice. “We should not be silent spectators of oppression and immorality.”

“We should remain steadfast on our resolution to find remedies to injustice in the New Year. Let us celebrate such messages.”
