Ahlea Sunnah Secretary General ANM Masoud Hussein Al-Qadiri made the demand at a press conference in Dhaka on Monday
Ahlea Sunnah Wal Jama’at Bangladesh has demanded imposing ban on Hefazat-e-Islam permanently for carrying out militancy and anti-religious activities in the country.
Ahlea Sunnah Secretary General ANM Masoud Hussein Al-Qadiri made the demand at a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) on Monday.
He said the top scholars of Ahlea Sunnat Wal Jama’at Bangladesh have been presenting the erroneous aqeedahs of Qawmi Hefazat through meetings, seminars, symposiums, writings and speeches for a long and asking them to sit in a debate on their erroneous aqeedahs.
But, Al-Qadiri said, the Hefazat leaders do not show interest in joining the debate and now their religious misguided policies and militancy are proved before the people.
He said Hefazat-e-Islam carried out mayhem at Shapla Chattar in the city in 2013, set arson on busses, cut down trees of city roads and created an anarchic situation here, which had no relation to Islam.
The Ahlea Sunnah leader said Islam does not allow any destruction but Hefazat established a reign of terror in Dhaka, Narayanganj, Brahmanbaria and Chittagong on March 26 and later on. “But they claim that they are the custodians of Islam,” he added.
Al-Qadiri said Hefazat leader Mamunul Haque was involved in adultery at a Narayanganj resort but Hefazat did not take any organizational action against him.
Ahlea Sunnah Wal Jama’at Bangladesh presidium members Allama Abdur Rahman Al Qadiri and Allama Mu’tasitam Billah Rabbani, Allama Tajul Islam Chandpuri and Allama Alamgir Hossain Juktibadi, its joint secretary general Prof MA Momen and Allama Mufti Abu Jafar Mohammad Helal Uddin, among others, were present at the press conference.
