Whichever way we look at it, it is certain that Tabligh Jamaat is steadily increasing its popularity, although some recent events are bringing about a split within Tabligh Jamaat. Even so, it is difficult to say that his popularity is decreasing. Tabligh Jamaat is so popular, then it is very natural to raise this question in the minds of common people that why this popularity?
A major reason behind its popularity is that Tabligh Jamaat is able to assimilate or retain its members in its ideology. A number of conscious or unconscious practical factors operate behind this retention. These practical issues are one for Bangladesh and different for any other country in the world. If we consider the case of Bangladesh, we find that Tabligh Jamaat’s claim to conduct apolitical activities creates a significant interest among the common people. Because most people do not want to mix politics with religion; Rather, they feel more comfortable keeping these two things separate. So when a religious movement espouses an apolitical ideology or practice, its popularity or appeal will naturally be greater among the people; However, in this modern world, nothing is out of politics. This is exactly what happened in the case of Tabligh Jamaat.
