The decision was taken at a meeting of the Shura committee held on Wednesday

Hathazari Madrasa’s shura committee (advisory committee) has decided to keep Hefazat-e-Islam's Amir Allama Ahmad Shafi as the rector of the Madrasa till his death.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Shura committee held on Wednesday.

Wishing to remain anonymous, a Hefazat-e-Islam's leader said, at the same meeting the current assistant director of the madrasa, Allama Junaid Babungari, also the secretary-general of Hefazat-e-Islam, was relieved from all responsibilities of the madrasa.

In his place, Maulana Sheikh Ahmed, a senior teacher of the madrasa, was given the responsibility of the associate director.

After the death of Hefazat-e-Islam Chief Shafi, Sheikh Ahmed will be the rector of the madrasa.

Earlier, the meeting of the shura committee began at 10:15am in Al-Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Moinul Islam, popularly known as Hathazari Madrasa.

Junaid Babungari was not present at the beginning of the meeting which lasted till 3pm.

Seeking anonymity, a Hefazat-e-Islam leader said Babungari is not a member of the Shura committee, so he was not present at the beginning of the meeting.

However, another source of the madrasa said that Allama Junaid Babungari was made a member of the Shura committee in a meeting held in 2017. At that time he was made the assistant director of the madrasa.

However, in a recent video message, the rector of the madrasa, Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh Amir Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi, said, "No one has been given the post of the acting rector or assistant director."

According to madrasa sources, the Shura committee had met for the second time since 2017.

Although no one spoke directly about the meeting, the source said that Hefazat Amir Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi is suffering from various ailments including geriatric illness.

Therefore, this meeting has been called to select the next rector in a systematic manner.

Almost all the members of the shura committee were present at the meeting except for the deceased members, sources said.
