Welcome to NABIC – the North American Bangladeshi Islamic Community.
NABIC is a non profit 501(c)(3) organization, registered (Tax ID: 62-1531289), established in 1990. Initially, it was to be a network of Islamic-minded professionals – a resource group that would intellectually counter attacks by Bangladeshi “secularists” on Islam and Muslims through writings, seminars, lectures, etc. It was to be an alternative trend to the existing politically-based Islamic, and “non-political” Islamic groups. It is
Non-Partisan: No affiliation or appearance of affiliation with any political parties in Bangladesh. However, individuals of all political stripes are welcome;
Non-Sectarian: No preoccupation with sects or Madhabs;
Ummah-Oriented/Bangladesh-Focused: Based on the proverb “think globally; act locally.” Though the focus area is Bangladeshis and Bangladesh, it is not a nationalist organization, and it extends a helping hand to other parts of the world.
