Bangladesh plans to silence its capital for one minute on Sunday

Dhaka, Oct 12 (Prensa Latina) The campaign "A Minute of Silence" will be held next Sunday to raise public awareness about the danger of noise pollution, the government of Bangladesh announced today.

Farhina Ahmed, Secretary for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, said in a press conference that at 10 a.m. on that day, we intend to make Dhaka, the capital city, noise-free for one minute.

She urged the cooperation of all residents to control noise pollution.

Similarly, she said, special programs will be held on October 15 from 09:30 am to 10:00 am in important areas like Osmani Auditorium, Shahbagh intersections, Uttara, Vijaysarani, Mirpur-10, Gabtali, Mogbazar, Mahakhali, Gulshan-1 and Basabo Buddhist temple.
