Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the government will construct 560 model mosques and an Islamic university. 

“The Saudi government will assist us in these projects,” she said in her speech as the chief guest at a rally, titled “Shokrana Mahfil,” at Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka on Sunday.  

Al-Hiyatul Ulya Lil-Zami'atil Qawmiya Bangladesh, the highest organization of Dawra-e-Hadith of Qawmi madrasa, organized the rally to receive the prime minister following the government’s recognition of the Dawra-e-Hadith (Takmil) degree of the Qawmi madrasa system. 

The organization’s chairman, Hefazat-e-Islam Ameer Shah Ahmad Shafi, chaired the event. 

Thousands of students and teachers of Qawmi madrasas started gathering at the venue, from across the country, since morning.

The government postponed Sunday's Junior School Certificate and Junior Dakhil Certificate examinations to November 9 for the event. 

At the rally, Qawmi leaders expressed their desire to see the prime minister in power for a third consecutive term. 

“Since Sheikh Hasina has recognized [ the top Qawmi madrasa degree] we want her to come to power again, so that she can fulfill the rest of our demands,” Qawmi leader Fazlul Karim said.

The speakers said there is a change in Bangladesh now, and Qawmi leaders were not able to receive a prime minister before, with such warmth, because none had listened to their demands.

On September 18, parliament passed a bill to recognize the Dawra-e-Hadith (Takmil) degree as equivalent to a post-graduate degree in Islamic Studies and Arabic.
