Khatme Nabuwat to hold grand rally, court arrest tomorrow

Staff Correspondent

International Khatme Nabuwat Movement Bangladesh will hold a grand rally and ‘court arrest’ programme at Muktangaon in the city tomorrow instead of laying siege to Bakshibazar Ahmadiyya Complex.

The organisation earlier announced the ‘siege programme’ but changed the programme in view of the present national crisis, particularly bomb terrorism, its leaders said at a press conference at Rahim Metal Mosque in Tejgaon yesterday.

The Khatme Nabuwat Movement has been carrying out agitation programmes to press home its demand that the government declare Ahmaddiyyas as non-Muslims.

The leaders said that Mufti Nur Hossain Nurani, who was expelled from the organisation, had announced the ‘siege’ programme under the banner Khatme Nabuat Andolon.

“Our executive body expelled Nurani on September 4 for violating the rules of the organisation, but recently we have seen posters at different places in the capital, which read: ‘Islamic devotees led by Mufti Nur Hossain Nurani will lay siege to Bakshibazar Ahmadiyyas Complex on December 23’,” said Khatme Nabuwat Ameer Mahmudul Hasan Mamtaji.

He also said that their organisation has no link with Nurani and his organisation. “All of our programmes are peaceful and we don’t support Nurani’s programme,” said Mamtaji and called on the Islamic devotees not to join the Nurani’s programme.

Khatme Nabuwat Secretary General Alhaj M Nazmul Haq said they will stage demonstrations tomorrow as the government has not yet met their demand as per their ultimatum that expires on December 23.

Ataur Rahman Gazi, Syed Tasaddek Hossain, Noor Hossain and Mufti Ruhul Amin were present at the press conference.
