Jamaat Ameer greets the countrymen on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Maqbul Ahmad has issued the following statement on 3rd June 2019, extending greetings to the countrymen on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Fitr.

“Al Quran has been revealed in the month of holy Ramadan. Almighty Allah revealed this holy book to ensure freedom, welfare and guidance for humanity. This sacred month is a blessed reward for the humanity from their Lord. Almighty Allah wants to instill piety and to make the people fearful of God by purifying their minds by the virtue of Al Quran. Such a fearful and noble man can wholeheartedly contribute to establish a prosperous, peaceful and welfare state. The first Islamic state, which had been established by the Prophet Muhammad (PubH) is the biggest example of this claim. Such a welfare state ensures justice and equity for all citizens irrespective of their cast, creed and religions.

At present, our nation is experiencing the worst ever tortures, repression and political crackdowns. The poor and the impoverished people are being subdued. The country is witnessing all sorts of ill-deeds and crimes including bribery, corruption, abduction, enforced disappearance and terrorism at the highest level. The general masses are being overloaded by the excessive price hike of the essentials. To get rid of all these crises, a welfare state is a must.

Let us celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitr this time with a vow and dream of establishing such a welfare state. May Allah help us with His Divine help and blessings to make our country free from exploitations and tortures.

On behalf of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, I am praying for the peace and prosperity of our beloved country. Besides, I am extending greetings of the holy Eid-ul-Fitr to my fellow countrymen. May Allah bless us all. Eid Mubarak.
