Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has called upon the spoiled youths to come back to the right path saying the government would do everything for their livelihood.
She also urged the guardians and teachers to make concerted endeavors to build a generation of good moral character and integrity to prepare them taking future leadership of the country.
The premier said this while addressing the Independence and National Day rally of children and juveniles at Bangabandhu National Stadium in the capital on Sunday morning.
“We have to make united efforts so that our children get a better life, have good character and pursue study to become worthy citizens and take the future leadership of the country. Today’s children will be the real citizens to take forward the country and materialize the dream of Bangabandhu,” she said.
She said the drive against the militants, terrorism and drug would continue and it would be handled with iron hands. We have earned independence at the cost of blood of millions of martyrs. So we have to get prepared so that none can thwart out our independence and spirit of our liberation war.
“In south Asia Bangladesh will be the most prosperous nation and we will able to do this,” Sheikh Hasina said adding today’s generation would build the golden Bangladesh of the Father of the Nation, who dreamt for a poverty and hunger free nation.
Sheikh Hasina advised the children to devote themselves to education seriously and obey their parents and teachers, and never get involved in terrorism, militancy and drug addiction.
“Children should keep in mind that Islam is the religion of peace and fraternity. It never says for killing people. Rather, suicide is a great sin Islam, which would take a person to hell, not to haven,” she said.
