Muhith said: “This row among the Islami Bank board of directors has been ongoing but I cannot say why it has not yet come to an end. “The government will not interfere in the bank until the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) wants to delve into the matter,” he said. “The current bank chairman, Arastoo Khan, is a capable person. I hope he can bring the matter under control,” he added.
