Jamaat Ameer visits Sitakunda’s blaze spot and BM container depot; Visits fire victims in different hospitals
-Dr. Shafiqur Rahman
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has instantly visited the spot of Chittagong district’s Sitakunda Upazila and BM container depot which came under unprecedented blaze on 5th June. Jamaat Ameer witnessed the severity of the fire incident directly. Then, he visited several hospitals in port city Chittagong to see the fire victims, spent some time over there, consoled them, and prayed for their quick recovery. He also provided them with some financial assistance. At that time, Jamaat’s Assistant Secretary General and Chittagong city Ameer Muhammad Shahjahan accompanied the Jamaat Ameer.
During the visit, Jamaat Ameer said, I was watching the incidents since last night but now coming here physically, I realized the gravity of the accident. I do not know, how many people have been killed, how many people have been criplled. May Allah accept all the deceased of this accident as martyrs. Lots of prayer for the injured so that they can come back to normal life shortly. May Allah bless them to hold patience to endure the severe shock.
Jamaat Ameer further said, as a responsible and committed organization, Jamaat-e-Islami had been by the side of the affected people and will be. The local organization has been working since night and they will continue such effort to lessen the mass suffering. But a single organization cannot manage such a huge catastrophe. The government has to take responsibility. I became shocked and astonished as I saw the government has announced just two lakh for the deceased family. It should be increased to 10 lakh taka minimum. Besides, the people who had negligence behind the accident should be identified. They should be brought to the book to stop the recurrence of such tragic accidents.
Among others, Chottogram North district Ameer Professor Nurul Amin Chowdhury, Chittagong city Secretary Principal Muhammad Nurul Amin, Chittagong North district Secretary Alauddin Shikdar, city’s Assistant Secretary Muhammad Ullah, organizing secretary Shamsuzzaman Helali, Sramik Kollan Federation Chittagong city Secretary SM Lutfor Rahman, North district office secretary Professor Fazlul Karim, Tarbiah Secretary Anwar Siddiq Chowdhury, North district Sramik Kollan President Yousuf bin Abu Bakar, Sitakunda South thana Ameer Muhammad Taher and North thana Ameer Maulana Tawhidul Haq Chowdhrut and others were present during his visit.
