Bangabandhu birth centenary
Hefajat ameer demands cancellation of invitation to Indian PM
Hefajat-e Islami Bangladesh ameer Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi has demanded of the government to cancel the official invitation to Indian prime minister Narendra Modi at the Mujib centenary function in protest against the brutal of Muslims and burning their property in the Indian capital of New Delhi this week.
In a statement on Thursday evening, Allama Shafi said Bangladesh's people don't want to see anti-Muslim Modi at Bangabandhu’s birth centenary function in Dhaka next month. "Modi directly or indirectly instigated the killing of Muslims in Gujarat, Kashmir and Delhi," he said.
Describing Bangladesh as a country of communal harmony, Allama Shafi said the people of Bangladesh would never accept the presence of Modi who was responsible for the killing of so many Muslims in India.
The Hefajat ameer also called upon all to seek blessings of the almighty for the departed souls after Juma prayers on Friday at all the mosques of the country.
