The authorities of Islamic University inaugurated Bangabandhu Library at Khaleda Zia Hall in the campus in Kushtia on Thursday with a view to spreading the spirit of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman among the students of the hall.
IU Vice-Chancellor Professor M Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari inaugurated the library at the hall as the chief guest around 12:00 pm as part of the celebration of Bangabandhu’s birth centenary.
IU Khaldea Zia Hall Provost Professor Reba Mondol, its house tutors Shyam Sundor Sarkar, Mahbuba Siddiqua, Assistant Proctors Associate Professor Mohammed Nasir Uddin and Assistant Professor M M Nasimuzzaman were present on the occasion.
Later, a discussion programme on Bangabandhu was held there. Around two hundred residential students of the hall participated in the programme.
While addressing the programme, IU Vice-Chancellor Dr Rashid Askari said, “We need to get out of the conventional ideas about women. The structure of female and males may vary. But the real point is that women are ahead of men in the workplace. ”
‘The days of trying to repress women are over from a biological point of view. Women will evolve as a tool to change society. Women will be the present-day decoration makers.
With the inauguration of today’s library, the students of this hall will be inspired by the ideals of Bangabandhu. The students will help to create the golden Bangla of Bangabandhu’s dream,’ he added.
