Shahid Mehmood Khan, Secretary Ishaat Jamaat Congo Kinshasa
In the Democratic Republic of Kinshasa, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat celebrated Eid-ul-Adha on 12 August 2019.
Many programmes were organised in different regions of the country in the week to come. The regional missionaries of Bandundu, Kikwit, Mbanza Ngungu and Matadi, Farid Ahmad Sahib, Ata-ul-Qayyum Sahib, Rizwan Majoka Sahib and Farhad Ahmad Sahib contacted the jail authorities and made preparations to distribute a healthy meal among the prisoners.
The teams of Khuddam in every region prepared the meals for the prisoners a night before. Before the distribution of the meals, a short message was also read to the prisoners in which stress was laid on the obedience of the authorities.
Since every jail has been divided in different pavilions, the distribution also took place pavilion-wise. The jail authorities were also served afterwards.
The Provincial Director of Jails of Bandundu region Mr Bikoko Mwenga Joseph expressed his gratitude and acknowledged the services of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat for society.
The jail superintendent in Matadi also thanked the delegation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat for rendering services for the prisoners.
The combined total number of all the prisoners served in every region was around 2,000.
