A digital library named after Bangabandhu will be constructed at the National Mosque Baitul Mukarram.

Bashundhara Group Managing Director (MD) Sayem Sobhan Anvir, also chief adviser of the management committee of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, came up with the announcement recently, according to a statement.

He was addressing a view exchange meeting with the mosque committee at his residence at Bashundhara Residential Area in the capital. Besides, he promised to send 100 insolvent people to Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah Hajj this year.

Established in 1986, Baitul Mukarram turned into the National Mosque of Bangladesh having a capacity to accommodate 30,000 worshipers together.

However, the mosque sees jamaat (congregation) of 40,000 worshipers during Juma Prayers on Friday.

Baitul Mukarram is yet to have a good library although it has housed several offices including one of the Islamic Foundation. The mosque committee raised a demand for a library which was accepted by Sayem Sobhan Anvir.

Bashundhara Group MD said he will construct the digital library in Baitul Mukarram, subject to permission from the Islamic Foundation.

The committee members hailed the announcement and tendered thanks to Anvir. They also offered special prayers seeking welfare of Bashundhara Group MD and his family members.
