The 8th edition of Dhaka Lit Fest (DLF), an internationally recognised literary festival, kicked off at Abdul Karim Shaihittya Bisharad Auditorium of Bangla Academy on Thursday.
 Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor formally inaugurated the festivity around 11 am in presence of award winning director Nandita Das and Pulitzer Prize winner author Adam Johnson and event directors.
 Praising the efforts of the hosts, Asaduzzaman Noor said DLF always holds principles that promote secularism and diversity.
The ruling government is always keen to extend support for sectors like art and science, he added.
 He also said events like DLF should be encouraged as such ventures help our youth to grow a culture of contemplation rather than ignorance.
 Producer and director of DLF 2018 Sadaf Saaz said they have always tried to stand by the literary figures that have been intimidated and even killed for their beliefs since the inception of the event.
 Other two co-directors of the event, K Anis Ahmed and Ahsan Akbar also spoke on the occasion.    -UNB
