The holy Eid-e-Miladunnabi, marking the birth and demise of the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), was observed in the city and elsewhere in the country today with due religious fervor and solemnity, condemning attacks on puja mandaps.
The traditional colourful rallies ‘Jasne Julush’ under the auspices of Ashekane Gausia Rahmania Mainiya Sahidiya Maizbhandaria and Anjuman-E-Rahmania Mainia Maizbhandaria were brought out from city’s Matshya Bhaban to Engineers Institution Bangladesh (IEB) and Gulistan Mahanagar Natyamancha in the city respectively.
Chief patron of Ashekane Gausia Rahmania Mainiya Sahidiya Maizbhandaria Alhaj Shahsufi Maulana Syed Shahid Uddin Ahmad Al Hasani Wal-Hossaini Maizbhandari (MAJI) led the rally.
Earlier, a discussion on the significance of Eid-e-Miladunnabi was held at Mahanagar Natyamanch.
Speakers at the meeting condemned the recent communal violence, including the attack on the puja mandaps, and termed it a terrorist act.
Shahsufi Maulana Syed Shahid Uddin Ahmad Maizbhandari said, “Those who committed terrorism in the name of Islam are the enemies of the Prophet.”
He said that an anti-Prophet group wants to spread the message that Islam is a terrorist religion. “They want to prove that Islam is a terrorist religion, not a religion of humanity. We have to be careful and alert about them. Now it is the time to act wisely,” he added.
