Buddhist leaders meet Hefajat ameer
Some Buddhist leaders met Hefajat-e Islam Ameer Shah Ahmad Shafi at Darul Ulum Moinul Islam Madrasa in Hathazari upazila on Saturday night.
Engineer Subash Barua, a Buddhist leader who attended the meeting, said they talked to Hefajat leaders and activists at the Chittagong Press Club on November 25 when they organised a programme to protest the attack on Rohingyas in Myanmar. Hefajat had held a similar programme there.
“On that day, we decided to have the meeting,” said Subash.
"The meeting was actually organised to increase religious harmony among people," Subash said while talking to this correspondent over the phone yesterday.
According to a press release of Hefajat yesterday, its ameer Shafi had told the meeting that he would continue to support the rights and security of the people who are not Muslims, including Buddhists.
