Attacks On Minority: Bangladeshi Hindus Want PM Modi, Indian Govt To Provide Safety

Updated on 13 June, 2016 at 3:27 pm By

The minority community in Bangladesh has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian government to take up the issue of recent spate of brutal killings of Hindus, with Dhaka to ensure their safety and security.

Rana Dasgupta, general secretary of Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council and noted Human Rights activist, said: “The Hindu community, which is the biggest minority community in Bangladesh, is vulnerable in Bangladesh. Fundamentalist and Jamat forces are trying to wipe out Hindus from Bangladesh.”

“We feel that India being a Hindu majority country, should do something. We have high hopes on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He should act and take up the matter with Bangladeshi government and ensure the safety and security of Hindus,” he said.

In the past few years, there has been a spate of brutal killings of Hindus, secular activists and bloggers, gay rights activists and other minorities.

Few days back, a 60-year-old Hindu ashram worker, Nityaranjan Pandey, was hacked to death by suspected Islamists. Pandey’s murder comes a few days after the brutal killings of a Christian grocer in northern Natore and a Hindu priest in northwestern Jhenaidah. At least eight people (activists and religious minorities) have been murdered since May 1.

In February, militants stabbed to death a Hindu priest at a temple and shot and wounded a devotee who went to his aid.

“The religious majority and the fundamentalist groups want to eliminate the Hindu community. Since last two years, this religious cleansing has gained further pace. Stability in the Indian subcontinent region can never be achieved with Bangladesh turning into a fundamental state. So if India wants stability in the region it should act to stop the annihilation of minorities in our country,” Dasgupta, who is also Prosecutor of International Crimes Tribunal, said.

Vowing to catch every killer, Bangladesh launched a countrywide crackdown on Islamic radicals, especially those belonging to the Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB). Under the operation, more than 3,000 people, including 37 militants, have been arrested across Bangladesh. The anti-militant drive involved the paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh and the elite anti-crime Rapid Action Battalion.

“Where will they hide in Bangladesh,” Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina has said. “No one will get away. Bangladesh is a small country. It’s not a tough task to find them. They will be brought to justice.”

“Each and every killer will be brought to book as we did after the 2015 mayhem (and) all their sources, financiers and patrons would be unearthed and brought to justice as well,” she said.
