UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
Hundreds of thousands of Muslims in Bangladesh participated, Sunday, in prayers for peace and prosperity and to stop the bloodshed in the world amid tight security.
This came at the end of a 3-day Islamic gathering near the capital Dhaka, according to the US Associated Press.
The agency said that hundreds of thousands of Muslims raised their hands during the prayers for the welfare of the world at the end of the “Bishwa soci” event.
Many of the worshipers were crying when the Imam prayed in tears: “O our Lord, we ask you to protect the Muslims, to bless them with you, and to end with your comfort every bloodshed.”
The agency noted that the prayer was held amidst tight security measures, as security services established watchtowers, control rooms and closed-circuit television.
One of the largest gatherings of Muslim worshipers is the “Peshwa sociology”, or World Assembly of Muslims, and is held on the sandy banks of the Torag River in the Tongi suburb, north of Dhaka.
The gathering, which was launched in 1949 as a gathering of Sunni Muslim preachers, attracts hundreds of thousands from Bangladesh and abroad. It is an unpolitical gathering, in which speeches address Islamic issues that address the values of peace, harmony and brotherhood.
