Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, Bangladesh began its three-day annual convention on Friday in Dhaka with a call to spread the messages of the holy Quran and Prophet Hazrat Muhammad.
This year’s convention marked its centenary celebrations that kicked off on Thursday amid attacks by their Muslim rivals.
Around 700,000 people including representatives from Australia, Canada, Germany, India, and Pakistan have joined the celebrations, said a media release.
The venue has been shifted from Gazipur’s Mouchak to Bakshibazar where the Jama’at is headquartered as the rivals torched the venue.
Some Muslim clerics consider Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, an Islamic sect, ‘non-Muslim’.
Moulana Mahmud Ahmad, special representative of the supreme head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, opened the inauguration of the convention calling upon all to follow ‘the true Islamic teachings’.
