Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina earned the title of ‘Mother of Qawmi’ for her government's efforts of giving the Dawra-e-Hadith (Taqmil) of Qawmi Madrasas the status of master’s degree.
Maulana Mufti Ruhul Amin, a member of Al-Haiyatul Ulia Lil-Jamiatil Qawmia, dubbed Sheikh Hasina ‘the Mother of Qawmi’ at a rally on Sunday at Suhrawardy Udyan.
The body arranged the rally to hail the government for giving the Dawra-e-Hadith (Taqmil) of Qawmi Madrasas the status of master’s degree.
Mufti Ruhul Amin said without her antagonistic forces would have halted the decision, bdnews24.com reports.
Another Al-Haiatul Ulya Lil-Jamiatil Qawmia Bangladesh member told the prime minister: “One of us has dubbed you the ‘Mother of Qawmi’. With your maternal compassion, please arrange for a Tk 5,000 allowance for imams and Tk 3,000 for muazzins.”
Awami League Religious Affairs Secretary Sheikh Abdullah asked for the support of the Qawmi alems.
“If our prime minister is the Mother of Qawmis then you are her children. As children, we have duties to our parents. I ask for your support.”
Al-Haiyatul Ulia Lil-Jamiatil Qawmia president Allama Shah Shafi presided over the programme. Mufti Nurul Amin read out his speech at the Sukrana Mahfil.
In his written speech, Allama Shafi said he has no involvement in politics and his speeches are often misinterpreted politically.
He also said there is negative publicity regarding him on social media and requested the people involved in Qawmi education not to believe and misled by the negative propaganda against him on social media and electronic media.
Later, Allama Shafi conducted a munajat where he sought blessings for the country and its people.
