Distribute at least one warm cloth this winter - Shibir president

Yasin Arafat, the central president of Bangladesh Islami Chhatrashibir, has called for distribution of warm clothes to the cold affected people.

He said this as the chief guest at a local auditorium of Nangalkot upazila at a program organized by Nangalkot upazila in the city. Nangalkot Upazila South President Ibrahim Hasan was also present in the program. The program was conducted in the presence of the local leaders including Comilla District South President Shahadat Hossain and Secretary Jobair Hossain, Nirmalkot South Jamaat Ameer Master Abdul Karim, Sadar Shibir President Sirajum Munir, Nangalkot North President Belayet Hossain and others.

Prior to this, he distributed warm clothes among the helpless poor people at a local playground, organized at the inauguration of Noakhali city branch at 8.00 am. Presided over by Noakhali city president Tahsan Habib, the city office secretary Sakhawat Hossain Shahin was also present. Metropolitan HRD secretary Abdul Aziz Shamim and Noakhali Government College President Kamrul Islam and local leaders were also present.

Shibir president said, every year in the winter, millions of cold affected people spent their lives in distress. There are many poor people scattered throughout the country, who do not even have a little clothing to cover themselves. Not only in the rural areas, but also in open grounds, railway stations, launches, people on the streets are living in unhappiness. Winter related diseases are spreading and the affected are suffering from these disease. If everyone comes forward with requisite help from government and society, then this problem could have been easily solved. Moreover, such incidents of the cold-affected people in a Muslim majority country are also unheard of. Rather, the teachings of Islam are that what one prefera for one’s self, he/she choose for others aa well. At the same time, non-governmental organizations, social and welfare organizations can also come forward to help the cold people. We can establish a welfare state by standing beside the human beings with the help of human consciousness and well-meaning. Therefore, the country's youth and civil society will have to come forward. Let us stand by the cold-affected people in this winter in brotherly spirit to help reduce the sufferings of human beings.

He said that since the establishment of Chhatrashibir, on the one hand, the people are standing beside the cold people as per the capability, and the students are encouraged to stand beside them. Already, instructions have been issued to activists according to the month long program to stand beside the cold-affected people. Every leader and activist has been asked to distribute at least one warm cloth. Winter cloth distribution activities are continuing in different parts of the country. We hope that, all the students, including the supporters of Chhatra Shibir will stand beside the cold affected people.
