Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday said Bangladesh has been recognised as a model in tackling militancy.
The minister came up with the remark at a views exchange programme with members of law enforcement agencies in the officers' club of Jamalpur.
He said police have made much improvement in the last 12 years.
"They have been able to gain the people's trust. It has been possible for them to tackle militancy as general people were with them," the minister said, noting that policemen breaking the law are being punished.
"We can brag about our police force," he said, urging everyone to work together to create a beautiful Bangladesh for the future generations.
