Help Ahmadis in Bangladesh

We request you to write letters and/or send fax to Bangladeshi authorities expressing your concern on growing sectarian violence and on persecution of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community as well. The situation at both the places is very tense. Ahmadis in Bhabanipur, Kushtia are still under boycott and most of the male members are out of their homes. Despite the police deputation, Ahamdis are not allowed to carry out their normal work. Even children are not allowed to go to the school. Their crops are being taken away. In Raghunathpur bagh, police has not yet arrested the killers of Shahid Shah Alam. Although the case has been filed against a local mullah and some other persons. The Imam Aminur of the Non-Ahmadi Mosque involved in killing Shah Alam is also a leader of Jamat-e-Islami. The addresses of Bangladesh authorities are given here under:-
