Foreign Minister Dipu Moni today said Bangladesh is not a moderate Muslim country as dubbed by foreigners but a secular country with a majority population of Muslims.
"We achieved our independence through an armed revolution with a dream to establish a non-communal country," Dipu Moni added.
The minister said many countries were termed with different labels but it is not necessary to take other's indication when it contradicts the fundamental values, she said.
"So the concept of moderate Muslim democratic country is not applicable here,"
Kudos to FM for telling the truth with guts. We have seen that the politicians like to use religious labels as a strategical ploy. But at last somebody had the guts to spell out the spirit of our liberation war - to be free from communalism.
