Dec 30, 2004, 11:30

Khatib of Baitul Mukarram, National Mosque, Moulana Obaidul Huq yesterday demanded continuation of the government announcement of ban on publication of any books and leaflets of the Ahmadias.

He demanded this when addressing at a press conference in the city where the organisers demanded declaration of Ahmadias as non-Muslims. Secretary General of the International Majlis-e Tahaffuz-e-Khatme Nobuwat Bangladesh Muhammad Nurul Islam said many countries including Libya, Egypt, Azad Kashmir and Pakistan have officially declared Ahmadias as non-Muslims.

He also said a High Court bench comprising Justice Mohammad Abdul Jalil and Justice Mohammad Fazlul Karim declared Ahmadias as non-Muslims in view of existing law in 1993.

He demanded formation of a board comprising members from different sections of people including lawyers and Islamic Scholars to justify allegations against the Ahmadias.

Advocate of Supreme Court ABM Nurul Islam, Moulana Ashikur Rahman and Moulana Mohiuddin Rabbani were present, among others, on the occasion.
