Chattogram: Hefajat-e-Islam Ameer Allama Shah Ahmed Shafi on Friday urged parents not to send their daughters to schools and colleges for further education after they complete fourth or fifth grades.

Shafi also administrated an oath at the 118th annual mehfil of Al-Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Muinul Islam Madrasah in Hathazari making its participants promise not to send their daughters to high schools, reports the UNB.

Shafi, also head of the madrasa’s governing body, said, ‘If you allow your girls to be educated up to eight, ninth or tenth grade, or to have MA or BA degree, they would no longer remain yours. Somebody else would take them away from you after marriage. Don’t you see incidents like this in newspapers?’

He also said the genuine peace is there in the ideology of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). ‘Those who follow the Prophet’s (pbuh) ideals will remain in peace both in this world and hereafter.’

The organisation’s Secretary General Allama Junaid Babunagari, Hathazari Madrasa teachers Sheikh Ahmed, Maulana Abdul Baset Khan Sirajee, Mufti Jasim Uddin, Maulana Azizul Haque Al Madani, Maulana Khaled Saifullah Ayyubi, AFM Khalid Hossain, Maulana Forkan Ahmad, Maulana Nurul Islam were, among others, present at the mehfil.
