Bdnews, Dhaka

The three-day 82nd annual conference of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Bangladesh, began on Friday at Central Ahmadiyya Complex at Bakshibazar in the city.

Participants at the conference called upon all to protest the publication of cartoons on Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM) by upholding his greatness and conveying the beauty of Islam to the world in a non-violent way.

Maulana Firoz Alam, representative of the fifth Khalifa of the World Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Mirza Masrur Ahmed, inaugurated the conference.

A discussion was held on Saturday on the second day of the conference. Workers’ Party President Rashed Khan Menon, JSD leader Mainuddin Khan Badal, Prof AAMS Arefin Siddique and Prof Tarek Saiful Islam took part in the discussion with the Dhaka city Ameer of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Afzal Ahmed Khadem in chair.

Speakers at the discussion called for freeing the nation from extremist communal politics which only divides people. They also urged to stop the violent acts against Ahmadiyyas for the sake of humanity.

In the inaugural ceremony, national ameer of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Mobashshar-ur-Rahman read the speech of their Khalifa.
