Leaders of different organisations yesterday reiterated their call to declare the Qadiani community as non-Muslims immediately.
Addressing separate rallies in the city marking the Demand Day across the country, they said that ‘the Quadiani community despite being non-Muslim minority; are using Islamic names and languages to snatch the rights of Muslims’.
They have been hatching conspiracy against Islam, the speakers observed.
Speakers at a rally of the International Khatme Nabuwat Movement, Bangladesh (IKNM,B) at Nabisco intersection, gave an ultimatum to the government asking it to declare Qadinanis as non-Muslims by December 23, otherwise they would go for tougher movement.
They would observe the Year 2005 as the year of Khatme Nabuwat, they added.
Announcing the programme, Maulana Mahmudul Hasan Momtazi, central Ameer of the organisation, said they will gherao the Bogra Qadiani Complex at Sheujgari on March 11.
He strongly condemned and criticised the Attorney General for his inaction to deal with the writ against the Government order banning all publications of the Qadiani community and also criticised the lawyers who favoured the qadianis.
The rally was also addressed, among others, by Maulana Momtajul Karim, Mufti Noor Hossain Nurani, Maulana Mansurul Haque, Syed Tasadduk Hossain, Maulana Abu Jafar Kashemi and Maulana Ruhul Amin.
The Khatme Nabuwat Andolon Parishad Bangladesh also held a rally at the north gate of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque after Jumma prayers.
Presided over by Mualana Abdul Khalique, joint secretary of the organisation, the rally was also addressed, among others, by Mufti Abdul Awal Owayesi, Engr. Abdul Hannan Hadi, Mufti Mohammad Shafi and Mufti Mahbubur Rhaman.
The rally was followed by a procession.
Meanwhile, leaders of Bangladesh Nizam-e-Islami Party addressing at a rally yesterday at the same venue emphasised the need for continuation of ban on publication of the Quadiani community saying that they (quadianis) are hatching conspiracy against the fundamental beliefs. Among others, Maulana Abdul Latif Nizami addressed the rally, which was followed by a procession.
