Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said united work of Muslim countries could bring better and dignified position for the Muslim community in the world along with reducing misery of the Palestinians as she opened the Hajj Programme-2024. 

"Today, if all the Muslim countries worked together making an alliance, it would have been easier to attain better position for the Muslims including reducing misery of the Palestinians," she said.

The premier inaugurated the Hajj programme at a function at the Hajj Camp in city's Ashkuna area as the chief guest.

"We could have further advanced if Muslim countries of the world worked unitedly," she said as she mentioned herself "the only sister" (head of government) among the OIC member countries.

Sheikh Hasina said, "I told them (head of states and governments) that I am the only sister. I am asking everyone to reach a consensus and speak up so this kind of unfair injustice doesn't happen to us again."

Highlighting the miseries of the Muslims in Palestine, she said genocide is being carried out there where no children, women or men were spared.

"But, I am protesting it wherever I get a chance. . . .Palestine will get more land in Gaza. It is their right. No one can take away this right. So, that right should be given to them," she said.

The premier also urged the Hajj pilgrims to pray for them.
