Ijtema in Feb as Tabligh factions bridge gaps

Ijtema in Feb as Tabligh factions bridge gaps

Leaders of the two factions of Tabligh Jamaat—one led by Indian preacher Maulana Saad Kandhalvi and another by Maulana Muhammad Jubayer— have finally agreed to hold the Biswa Ijtema together in February this year.

Coming out of a two-and-a-half-hour meeting with the leaders of both two factions at the home ministry, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan yesterday informed reporters that they eventually managed to resolve the conflict centring the Ijtema between the two groups.

“The factions have resolved their differences. They will organise the Ijtema together in February,” the minister said.

The home minister also said that two leaders from the factions would hold another meeting with the state minister for religious affairs on Thursday to fix the date of the Ijtema.

According to meeting sources, the faction led by Maulana Muhammad Jubayer had proposed at the meeting to hold the Ijtema on February 8–10, but the other faction opposed the date.

Hopefully, the Biswa Ijtema would be held sometime in the middle of February, the sources added.

Maolana Farid Uddin Masud, chairman of the Islahul Muslimin Parishad, attended the meeting in the home ministry yesterday. He said the two factions were ready to hold the Ijtema together.

Last year, one person was killed and 20 others were injured in a clash beween the supporters of Maulana Saad Kandhalvi and Maulana Jubayer.

To avoid the conflict between the two groups, the government deferred the Ijtema this year.
