Role of Imams lauded in preventing militancy


RANGPUR, May 08, 2018 (BSS) – The Imams are laudably preaching the real meaning of Islam thwarting misinterpretation of the religion of peace and preventing militancy, extremism and terrorism to establish sustainable peace in the society.

The views were expressed at the district level National Imam Conference organised for the trained Imams by Rangpur divisional office of Islamic Foundation Bangladesh (IFB) at its conference room in the city on Monday afternoon.

Deputy Commissioner Enamul Habib attended the conference as the chief guest with Rangpur Divisional Deputy Director of IFB Alhaj Abul Kalam Azad in the chair.

President of Rangpur city Awami league (AL) Shafiur Rahman Shafi and General Secretary of Rangpur District Imams’ Association and Khatib of Court Jam-e-Mosque Alhaj Moulana Md Hafizul Islam addressed the event as special guests.

Assistant Director of IFB Md Shamsul Haque delivered the welcome speech.

Taking part in the open discussion session, the trained Imams and representatives of mazar-khanka sharifs expressed their determination of preaching real meaning of Islam to resist some vested evil forces involved with misinterpreting the religion of peace.

Shafiur Rahman Shafi called upon the Imams to properly aware the common people of the false propaganda of some vested quarters against Islam in a bid to achieve their evil design through creating anarchy, chaos and communalism.

Alhaj Moulana Md Hafizul Islam urged the Imams to deliver special ‘Khutba’ before Juma prayers explaining the real meaning and spirit of Islam to make people aware of the real education of the peace oriented religion.

He also strongly condemned the propaganda being hatched by some evil forces using the name of Islam and suggested the Imams to keep vigil so that no vested quarter could use the mosques for realising their heinous interests.

The chief guest said Islam is the religion of peace and the Imams could play the most vital role in preventing militancy and terrorism for establishing sustainable peace in the society.
