State Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Md Abdullah remarked this on Monday while visiting the Ijtema grounds
State Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Md Abdullah has said the government will take initiatives to hold a unified Bishwa Ijtema, with the presence of Tabligh Jamaat’s two feuding groups, from next year.
The state minister remarked this on Monday while visiting the Ijtema grounds on the 2nd day of Bishwa Ijtema; attended by the followers of Indian Islamic preacher Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi.
The junior minister also said Ijtema is being held peacefully without any problems, and efforts will be made to hold a unified Ijtema next year.
On the second day of the second phase of Ijtema, the religious Bayan was delivered by Indian Mursalin which had been translated in Bangla by Mawlana Abdullah Mansur.
The Akheri Munajat will be held on Tuesday at 10am.
Bishwa Ijtema, now being held on the banks of the Turag River—with the participation of the followers of Indian Islamic preacher Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi—has been extended by another day as heavy rain disrupted the congregation on Sunday morning.
On Saturday morning, the Akheri Munajat of the followers of Maulana Jubair Hassan was held on the same grounds.
Tabligh Jamaat has been organising the Ijtema at the venue since 1967.
