-Dr. Shafiqur Rahman
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has said, the humanitarian crisis has been created centering the sudden flood in Sylhet and Sunamganj districts. We have to facilitate combined efforts to tackle the ongoing humanitarian crisis. We should sincerely believe that dangers and crises come from Almighty Allah. So, we have to seek forgiveness for our deeds. We also need to come forward to serve the flood-affected people. We are weak; even though we came here to take by your side as much as we can. Irrespective of political identity and other divisions, people must come together to help the flood victims. This crisis will not stay for long and by the grace of Allah, it will come to an end soon.
