Nawfel’s donation for 120 puja mandaps in Ctg

Chattogram Bureau Deputy State Minister for Education Barrister Mahibul Hasan Chowdhury Nawfel has denoted Tk 10,000 to each of the 120 puja mandaps under the Chattogram-9 parliamentary constituency on the occasion of Durgotsab. The donation was made at a views exchange meeting Friday night at WASA Square Auditorium of city’s Premier University. Nawfel said, “Once the Hindus used to get afraid when Durga Puja neared thinking whether the puja mandapas would be attacked or not. Mothers and sisters would return home before nightfall after visiting the puja sites.” However, after the government of Prime Minister Bangabandhu’s daughter Sheikh Hasina came to power, the community has been safely observing Durgotsab in the autumn without any worries by following proper rituals. Mothers and sisters now walk around various mandaps safely till late at night. When Sheikh Hasina’s government is in power, followers of all religions can safely perform their religious rites, he observed.
