"It is my asking from the almighty Allah that I can serve the people and work for their wellbeing as long as I can live," said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. 

"This Shukrana (thanksgiving) is for Allah," the premier said while speaking at the ‘Shukrana Mahfil’ (thanksgiving rally) held at Suhrawardy Udyan in the city on Sunday. 

The mahfil is held under the banner of Al Haiatul Ulaya Lil-Jamiatul Kawmiya Bangladesh hailing the government for giving the Dawra-e-Hadith (Taqmil) of Qawmi Madrasas the status of master’s degree.

At the thanksgiving rally, the PM urged the people of the country including the Alem-Ulema not to pay heed to 'propaganda' that spreads through social media platforms.   

If anybody spreads any false information, legal action will be taken against them instantly as a law has already been made to stop such propaganda, she said.  

Whenever I visit an international conference and hear the term ‘Islamic terrorism’ I object, she said adding that "Those terrorists have no religion. They are simply terrorists and militants." 

The government is mulling construction of 560 model mosques and an Islamic university in the country for the progress of Islamic education and culture, she said. 

Al Haiatul Ulaya Lil-Jamiatul Kawmiya Bangladesh Chairman Allama Ahmad Shafi presided over the mahfil. Meanwhile, Sheikh Hasina was dubbed as ‘the Mother of Qawmi’ at the event.
