The Akheri Munajat of these supporters will be held on Monday
The 54th Bishwa Ijtema for supporters of Indian preacher Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi began on Sunday.
The ijtema for Maulana Saad supporters began after the Fajr prayers on the day, with “ambayan (general sermons)” by senior Indian Tabligh Maulana Iqbal Hafiz..
The Akheri Munajat for these supporters will be held on Monday, marking the end of the Bishwa Ijtema for this year.
Devotees attending the ijtema have expressed concerns over the torrential rain on Sunday morning, with a traditional cookout on the open space of the ijtema ground suspended due to the downpour.
An elderly supporter of Maulana Saad, Syed Anisuzzaman, said the ijtema authorities will take measures if the rain does not stop.
Maulana Saad supporters began entering the ijtema ground from Saturday evening, immediately after the departure of Maulana Zubayer's supporters.
Assistant Superintendent of Gazipur Metropolitan Police (ASP Media) Ruhul Amin Sarker told the Dhaka Tribune: "Law enforcement officials have been deployed to maintain the safety and security of the devotees for these two days.”
"Police, along with RAB and the local administration, are vigilantly keeping an eye on the situation," he added.
Gazipur Deputy Commissioner Dr Dewan Muhammad Humayun Kabir said: "A number of items that were left behind at the Ijtema ground will go into the custody of the administration. The final decision on what to do with these items will be made after speaking to the leaders of both groups of supporters.”
The Akheri Munajat of these supporters will be held on Monday.
