Islam is not our state religion: Bangladesh minister

Bangladesh State Minister for Information Murad Hassan has stated that Bangladesh is a secular country that would revert to the 1972 constitution proposed by the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“I do not think that Islam is our state religion. We’ll go back to the constitution of 1972. We’ll get that bill enacted in parliament under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s leadership,” Hassan made the remarks while speaking at the Engineers Institution.

“This is a non-communal Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a secular country. Everyone will practice their faith here”.
