Shiias in Bangladesh facing deprivation, poverty

By: Nizam Hussain

DHAKA, Bangladesh: Followers of Ahl-ol Bayt (a.s.) in Bangladesh are facing poverty and cultural deprivation, Ar-Rasul Al-Adham (s.w.) Cultural Foundation delegation reported.
According to the report some parts lack mosques and hussainiyat for preaching faith of Ahl-ol Bayt (a.s.), while there are parts where mosques and hussainiyat are housed but these places of worship are in miserable condition and need reconstruction and renovation.

Owing to lack of religious preachers, Shiias live in severe cultural deprivation; rather most of them do not know religious laws.
Keeping in view poor financial condition of people here, hundreds of Christian and anti-Ahl’ol Bayt (a.s.) faith organizations are utilizing this situation by extending monetary support and health services under different names aimed at preaching their beliefs among Shiias.
