Sylhet Bureau : One bad time we are all going through. Society is corrupted by the boundless arrogance of the rapist. Human-like miscreants want to devour the beloved motherland. Their lust threatens the safety of women. In such a situation, there is no way to stay at home. Samakal Suhrid Samabesh, Sylhet district, has taken to the streets against rape and oppression of women all over the country, including Sylhet, under the slogan ‘Naked country in rape-oppression, O time, no more fighters’. A human chain protesting against rape and oppression of women was held in front of the central Shaheed Minar in Sylhet at 4.30 pm on Saturday.
‘Women, you, mother, wife, sister, daughter’, ‘daughter, Jaya, mother wants a rapist-free type’, ‘rapist’s address will not be in Sonar Bangla’ Suhrid assembly, members of Sylhet. Mokaddes Babul, presidium member of Bangladesh Recitation Coordination Council, Gautam Chakraborty, general secretary of Sammilita Sangskritik Jote, Mishfaq Ahmed Mishu, president of Sammilita Natya Parishad and Rajat Kanti Gupta, general secretary expressed solidarity during the protest.
At that time, the speakers said, starting from the great liberation war, women have played a leading role in all the achievements of Bangladesh.
