Rights activists, academics and researchers on Wednesday called on the government to incorporate options for the ethnic minority people in the questionnaire of the upcoming national census 2011 to estimate their real number.
The national census in 2001 was ‘politically motivated’ and the government should identify ethnic minority people on individual basis and enlist them separately in the upcoming census, they told a consultation meeting.
The Research and Development Collective and the International Labour Organisation jointly organised the discussion titled ‘National Census 2011: Way-out of Numeric Identification of Indigenous Peoples’ at the National Press Club in Dhaka.
The acting ILO country director, Gagan Rajbhandari, said the organisation was ready to provide technical assistance to the government to conduct the upcoming survey to estimate the number of the ethnic minority people in Bangladesh.
The Bangladesh Indigenous People’s Forum secretary, Sanjeeb Drong, said the government should learn from the neighbouring countries on how they conduct survey of the ethnic minority community.
