Khatme Nabuwat bid to besiege Ahmadiyya mosque foiled

Staff Correspondent

Click to enlarge imageThe religious bigots under the banner of International Khatme Nabuwat Movement Bangladesh (IKNMB) yesterday once again made a vain attempt to oust the Ahmadiyyas from their mosque at Nakhalpara in the capital.

Police foiled their attempt to lay siege to the mosque after Juma prayers. Several activists of IKNMB were injured in a clash with the law enforcers.

Failing to make the programme a success, a five-member team of IKNMB gave a signboard to the officer-in-charge of Tejgaon Industrial Zone Police Station in the afternoon that reads: “This is the den of the Kadianis, don’t be confused considering it as the mosque of the Muslims”.

The Nabuwat leaders announced the programme as their demand for passing a bill in parliament declaring the Ahmadiyyas non-Muslim went unheeded.

After Juma prayers, the activists of anti-Ahmadiyya outfit staged a rally at Nabisco intersection where they said the government did not pass the bill in parliament declaring the Ahmadiyyas non-Muslims as it does not want votes of those who wear caps (tupi) and who have beards.

Referring to the siege programme to the Ahmadiyya structures in Patuakhali, Chittagong, Khulna, Bogra and Satkhira, IKNMB Ameer Maolana Mahmudul Hasan Mamtazi said, “The government was forced to ban all kinds of books of the Ahmadiyyas following our movement.”
