Zealots threaten anti-Ahmadiyya steps again

Staff Correspondent

Islamist extremists at a rally yesterday reiterated their pledge to go for a tougher movement if the government does not declare the Ahmadiyyas non-Muslim immediately.

Extremists under the banner of International Khatme Nabuwat Movement, Bangladesh (IKNMB) organised the rally after Juma prayers in Tejgaon Nabisco crossing in the city.

They also criticised Dr Kamal Hossain for pleading for the Ahmadiyyas in court on the ban on Ahmadiyya publications.

The IKNMB leaders Mahmudul Hasan, Momtajul Karim and Mohammed Motahar spoke at the rally.

They announced their plan to seize the Ahmadiyyas’ mosque in Bogra on March 13.

Meanwhile, a tense situation prevailed in Tejgaon area as the rally was organised near the Ahmadiyyas’ mosque at East Nakhalpara.

A large number of police were deployed there to avert any untoward incident.

“Ahmadiyyas here are passing through a terrible situation in fear of attacks by religious extremists any time,” said Zakir, a member of Ahmadiyya community and an inhabitant of East Nakhalpara.
