Cricket matches should not be held during Jumma prayer: Asif Nazrul

Dhaka University (DU) Professor Asif Nazrul has said cricketers should not play cricket during Jumma prayer or on special day of the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims.

“Cricket matches of Bangladesh (Bangladesh cricket team) are held just during the Jumma prayer or on the important day of the Holy Ramadan. This happened frequently in last few years. It shouldn’t happen. This can be avoided if the authorities concerned wish. But, I don’t understand why they don’t wish so!,” Asif Nazrul wrote in his Facebook page.

The DU professor took to the Facebook to express his opinion on Thursday.

Asif Nazrul also expressed his opinion for rescheduling the date for Dhaka city polls, slated for January 30, in his Facebook status.

He wrote, “Farcical incidents took place in the name of elections in Bangladesh in last few years. As a result, the election has lost its appeal to the people. I don’t see any problem in rescheduling the Dhaka city polls date. The elections should be deferred if the Saraswati Puja is observed on January 30.”
