‘Trained Imams can help end social crimes and other anarchies’


Speakers said the trained imams have a vital role to play for freeing the society from all sorts of social and moral degradation tendencies, especially fundamentalism, terrorism and violence against women.They said the imams are the leaders of influence in the society so they should come forward towards making it successful in every sphere of life.The speakers were expressing their views at the certificate- giving and closing session of a 45-day long regular foundation training course of 826th batch at Imam Training Academy here on Monday.Divisional Director of Bangladesh Islami Foundation Mahbub Alam and Additional Registrar of Rajshahi University Dr Saad Ahmed addressed the session as the chief and special guests respectively with Deputy Director of the academy AKM Monirul Islam in the chair.The Chief Guest said there are crimes of various sorts in the present society. Misconceptions and anomalies are also there due to lack of proper and updated knowledge based on moral and religious values, he further said.As a result, various social disorders and crimes like gender disparity, violence against women, terrorism, corruption, early marriage, drug-addiction and polygamy couldn’t be resolved totally despite efforts at government and non-government level, he stressed.Zero tolerance against all sorts of violence and repression against women are very important for the sake of mainstreaming the womenfolk everywhere in the society for total welfare of the nation, he further added.He said the trained imams should do something better against the crimes as part of their social responsibility.
He also urged the attending imams to disseminate their updated knowledge acquired from the training course among the community people as the present government is committed to build everyone in the society as happy and prosperous.Dr Shafiqul Alam of the academy gave an overview of the course and its ultimate goals. He told the meeting that the academy has been extending computer literacy training to the youths side by side with the imams training on various income-generation and social issues.
