Translations of the Holy Quran in sixty languages have drawn public attention at an exhibition that began on Wednesday in Dhaka.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Bangladesh organises the exhibition at its headquarters at Bakshibazar to portray the true message conveyed by the Muslim holy scripture, and to dispel common misconceptions about the Quran.
Featuring a walk-in display, the exhibition included translations of the Holy Quran in sixty languages, as well as a selection of the Quranic verses in Bangla.
Speaking at the opening session, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Bangladesh national amir Mubashsherur Rahman said, ‘The worldwide Ahmadiyya community has so far translated the Holy Quran into nearly 80 different languages, and a selection of its verses into over 120 languages. The reason for doing so is simple – to convey the true meaning of this revered book to the people of the world in a way that is easy for them to understand in their own language.’
‘The Quran provides a complete code of conduct for Muslims. Unfortunately, both the opponents of Islam as well as some Muslim fanatics misquote cherry picked portions for their own goals. Our exhibition is meant to dispel these misconceptions and to highlight the true message of love and peace contained within this holy book,’ he added.
