JS body for finalisation of ethnic minority groups' list

The parliamentary standing committee on Cultural Affairs Ministry on Monday recommended for quick finalisation of the list of ethnic minority groups, reports BSS. It also suggested keeping provision of inclusion if any name of the ethnic groups is dropped from the list. The recommendations came from a meeting held at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban with its President Simin Hossain Rimi, MP, in the chair. Members of committee, Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor, Kazi Keramat Ali, Manoranjan Shill Gopal, Pankaj Debnath, Pinu Khan and Jebunnesa Afroz, were present at the meeting, among others. It held detailed discussion on progress of implementation of the recommendations for development of Bangladesh National Museum and Bangladesh Lok O Karu Shilpa Foundation (Bangladesh Folk Arts and Crafts Foundation). The meeting also stressed the need for holding talks on expending cultural programmes in primary and secondary level schools and madrashas aimed at preventing militancy and terrorism. It has decided to consider inauguration of the Kantajir Mandir (Kantaji Temple) in Dinajpur in the second week of May in 2018.
