IFB to invite imams of two holy mosques to preach against militancy in Dhaka
Islamic Foundation Director General Shamim Mohammad Afzal told the Dhaka Tribune that they are expecting imams of Masjid al-Haram and Al-Masjid an-Nabawi to attend the founding anniversary of IFB on March 22 in Dhaka, and address people on eradicating militancy. Two political parties, however, had failed to successfully invite Dr Sheikh Abdul Rahman Ibn Abdul Aziz Al-Sudais, imam of Masjid al-Haram, in July last year. “Both Dr Sheikh and Ali Bin Abdur Rahman al Huthaify, chief imam of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, are highly respected among Muslims all over the world. We hope that they will accept our invitations and come to Bangladesh to spread awareness among people against militancy,” said Shamim. Islamic Foundation is planning to arrange a rally on its 42nd founding anniversary at Suhrawardy Udyan, where Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is also expected to attend. Foundation personnel met the prime minister on February 28 to discuss the event. Following the meeting, a four-member representative team from Bangladesh met authorities of the Royal Embassy of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Dhaka on March 2 to take the preparations forward. According to the team, the Saudi king would have to allow the invitation as the imam of Grand Mosque is a state post. Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, secretary of the Ministry of Religious Affairs, said: “The time has not come to confirm their visit yet, but we are trying our best.” Islamic Foundation has been running anti-militancy campaigns by instructing imams and muezzins in Bangladesh to deliver sermons about  the devastating impacts of extremism.
