Saudi Arabia to pay big money for mosques in Bangladesh

Saudi Arabia has agreed to donate $118 million to set up 560 model mosques across Bangladesh, a media report said on Thursday.

The decision follows Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s last year vist to Saudi Arabia where she met King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the Dhaka Tribune reported.

The mosques will be able to accommodate at least 450,000 men and over 30,000 women for daily prayers and will have lodging space for more than 2,000 foreign guests and libraries.

The Saudi government has also agreed to donate money to establish a permanent campus for the Islami Arabic University in Bangladesh.
