Threat to capture Ahmadiyya complex in N’ganj Oct 8

Staff Correspondent

Aamra Dhakabashi, a religious fanatic group under the banner of a socio-cultural organisation, yesterday vowed to capture Ahmadiyya Missionpara Complex in Narayanganj and say the Juma prayers there on October 8.

The leaders of the organisation also announced that they will hold a grand rally on DIT Mosque premises in Narayanganj before marching to the Ahmadiyya complex.

The organisation held a rally and marched in procession from Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, demanding that the government declare Ahmadiyya sect non-Muslim. They also demanded arrest of the Ahmadiyya supporters including Kabir Chowdhury, Hasan Imam and Shahriar Kabir.

The leaders announced a series of programmes including a grand rally and demonstration on DIT Mosque ground on September 24, flag procession on October 1 and truck procession on October 6 from the mosque field.

They threatened to go for tougher programmes if the Ahmadiyyas are not declared non-Muslims by October 8.

“We’ll say our Juma prayers on Narayanganj Ahmadiyya complex and are ready to sacrifice our lives to this end,” said Shamsul Haq, president of Aamra Dhakabashi.

“We must enter the Ahmadiyya complex ignoring any obstacle put up by the Ahmadiyyas or the government,” said Jamal Nasser Chowdhury, secretary general of the organisation.

The leaders blamed the Ahmadiyyas for the August 21 grenade attacks on an Awami League rally that left 20 killed and over 200 hurt.

Abdul Kader, Fakrul Islam, Shayekh Masud Rahman, Ruhul Amin, Naser Chowdhury and Sharafat Ali, among others, addressed the rally.
