A mass gathering was organised in Cumilla in protest of the communal violence recently occurring in various districts across the country.
The rally called for resisting the perpetrators responsible for destroying communal harmony.
Cumilla-6 lawmaker AKM Bahauddin Bahar spoke at the rally, "Even before this, the conspirators have tried to destroy communal harmony in Cumilla in various ways. They were resisted then. They sow seeds of conspiracy again.
