Ahmadies are suffering badly in Brahmanbaria district

One old lady died in the remote village of Shahbazpur under Nabinagar Thana. The ahmadi lady was named Majlisun Nesa (70). Few villagers instigated by fanatic Ulama(religious scholars)took a stand not to allow the dead body to be buried in Muslim Graveyard. A tense situation started mounting in the locality. The TNO(Thana Executive

Officer) and OC(Officer In charge of Police)-Nabinagar rushed to the spot this morning to tackle the situation. Ultimately the authorities bowed down to the fanatics' demand and asked Ahmadies to bury their dead in a separate place. The TNO and the local district authorities alloted a three(3) decimal tiny Govt land for Ahmadiyya burial and asked Ahamdies to bury their body there. The matter was dealt to ease the tension but this has created a bad precedence for the agitators. Ahmadies were practically forced to bury their dead in a separate place. It's hard to believe that this is happening in Bangladesh to a community which has been here for 95 years!
