Bangladesh bans books by Muslim sect

The Hindu, India
Jan. 8, 2004 • Thursday January 8, 2004

Dhaka, Jan 8. (UNI): The Bangladesh government today banned the sale, publication and distribution of all books and booklets on Islam published by the Ahmadiya Muslim Jamaat.

An official announcement said the proscribed publications include Bengali or any other translation (with explanation) of the ‘Quran Majid’.

The ban came in the wake of agitation by some Islamic groups, who have also planned demonstrations in the capital tomorrow, for declaring the Kadianis as “non-Muslims”.

“The ban was imposed in view of objectionable materials in such publications that hurt or might hurt the sentiments of the majority Muslim population of Bangladesh,” said the announcement of the Bangladesh Home Ministry.

Around 5,00,000 members of the Ahmadiya community live in Bangladesh, where majority Muslims are ‘Sunni’.

The Ahmadiya community established in India respects Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Kadiani as a guide of the Muslims after Prophet Mohammad.
