Only Islamic principles can save the youth generation from destruction
Yasin Arafat, the Central President of Bangladesh Islami Chhatra Shibir, said that Chhatra Shibir was tirelessly working towards transforming the society from one beset by decay to one based on Islamic principles in order to create a prosperous Bangladesh. Our aim is to raise the future generation in light of Islamic principles, because only Islamic morals can save the youth, the leaders of tomorrow, from destruction.
He said this at a speech in a convention centre in the capital at the monthly meeting of the Secretariat, where he was the main guest and speaker. The meeting was presided over by Secretary General Mobarak Hossain, and it was attended by special guests ex-Central Presidents Mohammad Selim Uddin and Atiqur Rahman. All members of the Secretariat were present at the meeting.
The Shibir President said, the student community of the country is being derailed purposefully. The educational institutions are no longer just places of study, but the place where a lot of malpractices occur. Many young and teenaged students have become involved in malpractices. Due to the absence of a conducive environment in the educational institutions, the process of raising enlightened minds through education has mostly become a failure. On the other hand, a group with vested interests in keen on facilitating the destruction of the youth society. The culture of drugs and invasion by seedy foreign culture has been carefully injected under the aegis of the government to divert the youth and students from Islamic values and principles, due to which a large percentage of them are enmeshed in the nets of substandard character or are lacking in character. Amidst all this, Chhatra Shibir is tirelessly working towards transforming this societal system from one beset by decay to one based on Islamic principles in order to create a prosperous Bangladesh. And keeping this in mind, Shibir aims to raise the future generation in light of Islamic principles, because only Islamic morals can save the youth, the leaders of tomorrow, from destruction.
He said, Chhatra Shibir has been working for the past 40 years to create an ideal society based on Islamic ideals. However, it is not enough that one simply opposes the anti-Islamic conspiracies and malpractices, but is is necessary that one should work from his position towards practical steps and solutions alongside opposing such moves. We are obliged to raise the upcoming generation with capability and a sense of responsibility. Thus the spread of the Quranic message and the reach of our organisation needs to be facilitated in every educational institution to save the student society from present-day conspiracies and malpractices. The great message of Islam needs to be brought towards every student. The most practical method in this regard is to call the student society towards the way of the Quran through possession of high character.
