Bangladesh Islami Chatra Shibir in a statement has called for an immediate end to the massacre in Egypt and the reinstatement of Egypt’s democratically elected President Mohammad Morsi. Leaders of the student front called for the above at a procession held in the capital Dhaka.
The large procession, led by Central Publicity Secretary Mizanur Rahman, began at 4 pm local time starting from the Mohakhali and ended at Shaheen College end with a post rally demonstration. Also present was Shibir Central School Affairs Secretary Jakir Hossain Selim among other leaders. The Shibir leaders said that what was happening in Egypt was a state sponsored planned massacre by the military which had aggrieved Muslims worldwide this Ramadan. The martyrdom of hundreds of men, women and children had affected every human being with a conscience. Shibir leaders further said, “We on behalf of the people of Bangladesh strongly condemn this ongoing massacre. We urge the military rulers to immediately stop this massacre and reinstate and hand over power to the democratically elected President Mohammad Morsi.
The Shibir leaders reiterated their sincere support for the pro-democracy peaceful protesters in Egypt. We extend our condolences to every mother who has lost her child and every sister who has lost her brother. The blood of martyrs will not go in vain and Egypt will turn into a bastion of the Islamic movement Insha Allah.
