Hefazat-e-Islam chief Shah Ahmed Shafi has demanded the Ahmadiyya Muslim community—also known as Qadianis—be declared as non-Muslims

He stated his demand and remarks on Ahmadiya Muslim community on the grounds of Bir Muktijoddha Sirajul Islam Stadium in Panchagarh over a Islamic convention.

His written speech was read by his son Anas Madani.

"The demand to declare the Qadianis as non-Muslims is part of being a Muslim. Those who think Qadianis as muslim they are non-Muslim. Those who don't believe Qadianis are Qafir are also Qafir," said Shafi.

In the speech Shafi intensely criticized Workers Party President Rashed Khan Menon who supported Ahmadiyya Muslim community.

Previously  on February 13, Shafi made the same demand during a press briefing at a madrasa, in Chittagong.
