After receiving the Gold Medal from Vice Chancellor of BUBT Professor Md. Abu Saleh, Mr. Syed Hasan Imam addressed the students of BUBT as the Chief Guest of the discussion. He recalled the role of the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in our Liberation War and said that, the spirit of the War was Building a nation in peace and equality. Our great fighters fought for a poverty free Bangladesh in 1971. But we see today, some rich people are grasping all the money of the country. They want to have more wealth and never stop. This is the example of the disparity and our fighters did not fight to see this state. We should uphold the spirit of the War of Liberation and we need to prevent the business in education and injustice in property distribution.
