DHAKA, May 17, 2018 (BSS)-Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu today said that the swing-door of power reverting between Pro-liberation and Anti-liberation forces must end, once and for all.
Similarly, subversive elements in all government organizations also needed to be weeded out, he said.
He was addressing a function at the Bangladesh Film Archive on the occasion of its 40th founding anniversary.
Tracing the history of the film industry he said “It was the foresight of Bangabandhu that created the basis of the film industry in 1957. It resulted in a cultural movement that complemented the political part of the nationalist movement”
His daughter Sheikh Hasina continued the tradition and has taken numerous steps to strengthen the industry, Inu said. “In 2021 the country will host World Film Archive Congress,” he announced.
He said that those who do not have a history want to erase it. “We are proud of our heritage, so we want to preserve it,” he added.
