Unity is Identity (Peace Network)
Partnerships for a Tolerant and Inclusive Bangladesh (PTIB), UNDP, BANGLADESH
Bangladesh is a country of different diversified casts, culture, religion and so on. A person or a group can be identified as a diversified group based on their distinct cultural background, religion, gender, sexual orientation, economic condition, educational background etc. In this regard, almost 48 ethnic communities, transgender, Madrasa Students, tea garden workers, city cleaners and some religious minority groups exist in Bangladesh, what makes the country a home of diversity.
From upper to lower level in our society, there exists a distinct belief among the mass people about these diversified groups and as there is the absence of or limited contact between these communities, a lack of comprehension, sympathy and simple understanding, together with a risk of prejudices, xenophobia, polarization and misunderstandings are naturally the results. All these stereotypes create communal tension and hamper social harmony and peaceful co-existence. These multi-cultural, religious and other phenomena in current times have posed a great challenge for the peaceful and harmonious co-existence among adherents of various diversified communities in Bangladesh.
This multi-cultural, religious and other phenomenon in current times have posed a great challenge for the peaceful and harmonious co-existence among adherents of various diversified communities in Bangladesh. Hence, the bid to curb this challenge has given rise to the concept of “Peace Network” among youth from different cultural, religious, ethnic, educational and ideological backgrounds, promoting peace by experiencing and learning from each other’s culture, religion and lifestyle.
