Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq said on Wednesday that Bangladesh still faces gender inequality issues despite formulating different laws to address the issue.

“Only law enforcement cannot eliminate the gender disparity. For that, men and women need to change their attitude and mindset alongside law enforcement,” he said. .

The minister said this while addressing as a chief guest at a ceremony organized by the National Human Rights Commission of Bangladesh (NHRCB) marking International Women’s Day at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre.

Summary of the draft report on the National Inquiry into things to do to tackle crimes like rape against women and children was presented at the function.

“Whatever we say, or no matter how many acts we take, we cannot achieve our goal until we can eliminate gender disparity. This cannot happen overnight. The government Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is doing everything possible to get rid of this inequality and as a result this disparity is slowly disappearing,” Anisul Huq added.

Chaired by NHRCB Chairperson, Nasima Begum, the function was also addressed by Principal Secretary, Prime Minister’s Office, Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah, UNDP Resident Representative, Sudipto Mukherjee, NHRCB Members, Dr. Kamal Uddin Ahmed and Jesmin Ara Begum, among others.
