20 lac Taka was given to the Bangabazar owners by the Hijra community
On the dawn of April 4th, a massive fire broke out in Bangabazar’s clothing market in Dhaka. Five days later, embers and ashes still cover the rubbles. But the Hijras did not remain unmoved. Yesterday, the Hijra community donated 20 lakhs to the businessmen affected by the fire (Bangbazar Complex Shop Owners Association and Bangladesh Shop Owners Association) on April 9, 2023. At that time, nearly 200 Hijras gathered at the scene of the disaster. The donation was handed over by the President of Bangladesh Hijra Development Organization, Kashmir Dipali Hijra and Hijra guru Bakul Hajji. As Hijra gurus explained, this donation was made at the expense of members’ savings for Eid. ZE Project assisted the press conference to show its solidarity with the Hijra community and congratulates the transgender gurus and their followers for this great activity!
