Biswa Ijtema: Akheri Munajat of Jubair’s followers held
Gazipur: The Akheri Munajat of the followers of Maulana Jubair Hassan of the 54th Biswa Ijtema was held on the bank of the Turag River at Tongi here on Saturday.
Maulana Jubair Hassan conducted the munajat from 10:42 am to 11:06 am.

After the departure of the Jubair’s followers from the Ijtema ground, the followers of Maulana Muhammad Saad Al Kandhalvi will take part in the Biswa Ijtema on Sunday and Monday and hold their Akheri Munajat on the last day.
BiswaI jtema, one of the largest Muslim congregations in the world, began on the bank of the Turag River on Friday with ‘Aambayan’ (general sermons) by Pakistani Islamic scholar Maulana Ziaul Haq after Fazr prayers.
The first phase of Biswa Ijtem was scheduled to be held from January 11 to 13 while the second one from January 18 to 20 last, but those were postponed due to the December-30 national election.
Later, it was decided that the Biswa Ijteam would be held once instead of two phases this year.
Tabligh Jamaat has been organising the Ijtema at the venue since 1967.
The Ijtema was held in two phases from 2011 to 2017 to ease the accommodation and transportation problem.
