Religious ministry drum up public opinion

Religious Affairs Ministry has been working to drum up public opinion against militancy involving mosques and madrasahs across the country mainly to keep away new generation from getting involved in the misdeed, reports BSS.

Islamic Foundation of Bangladesh has already distributed five lakh copies of two books against militancy among all the mosques across the country to give an idea of true sense of Islam which never permits militancy.

Monitoring committees of the foundation has been arranging anti-militancy view exchange meetings, rallies, seminars and meetings with the participation of imam, khatib, alem and olema at upazila and district levels with a view to creating awareness against militancy. The ministry is also holding interfaith dialogue at divisional cities against militancy and terrorism.

Meanwhile, the religious ministry has taken a two-year project involving Tk 46 crore to create anti-militancy awareness by conducting nationwide publicity campaigns using Information Communication Technology (ICT).

“We have prepared a development project proforma (DPP) for the two-year project titled “Increasing religious harmony and awareness” involving Taka 46 crore mainly to create awareness among the people against militancy and terrorism,” Senior Assistant Chief of Religious Affairs Ministry Rezaur Rahman told the news agency.

The project has been included in the revised ADP (Annual Development Program (ADP) of the fiscal 2017-18. The work of the project is likely to start by July and end by June 2020, he informed.

“The main purpose of the project is to remove people’s misconception and prevent propaganda about religion by conducting massive publicity using the ICT. The most used social networking sites such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitter will be used in the campaign to drum up anti-militancy opinions among the people,” he said.

“The ministry has already initiated a move to appoint a consultancy firm for successful implementation of the project,” said Rezaur Rahman, adding that the firm will be entrusted with imparting training, conducting publicity and holding workshops to this end.
