Trained imams have a vital role towards building crime-free society which is crucial for development of the society.

They were addressing the certificate giving and closing session of a 45-day long regular training course of the 967th batch of Imam Training Academy at its conference hall in the city yesterday. Commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police AKM Hafiz Akter addressed the session as the chief guest with Deputy Director of the academy Monirul Islam in the chair. Divisional Director of Islamic Foundation Habej Ahmed and former deputy director of the academy Abdur Rouf also spoke on the occasion. The guests distributed certificates among 98 imams of the training course coming from nine districts under Rajshahi and two districts under Khulna divisions. RMP Commissioner Hafiz Akter said the imams have very much important role to resist drug-addiction, militancy, terrorism and corruption in the society.

He urged the trained imams to play their responsible role towards supplementing the country’s present development process side by side with protecting the social stability. “We have to forge social resistance against sexual harassment against women, dowry and multiple marriage for the sake of ensuring women education, social harmony and family values,” he added.
