Bangladesh Violence: AAMSU Terms Perpetrators As ‘Religious Fanatics’; Writes To PM Hasina

Guwahati: The All Assam Minorities Students’ Union (AAMSU) on Wednesday shot a memorandum to the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina to take immediate steps to contain the violence upon minority Hindus there.

Communal tensions have erupted in Bangladesh recently following the report of an incident in which the holy Quran was dishonored at a puja pavilion in Cumilla on October 13. Immediately miscreants started attacking Hindus and vandalized Durga Puja pandals and temples. At least four persons were killed in police shootings during attacks on Puja venues while two more persons were killed later during attacks on Hindu temples in Naokhali.

In its memorandum which the students’ group has forwarded through the Assistant High Commissioner, Bangladesh at Guwahati, read, “It’s obligatory on Your Government to protect lives, properties and religious places of worships of minority communities in Bangladesh. We are hopeful that Bangladesh will stick to the founding principle of secularism and vision of its founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in respect of rights of minorities.

The religious fanatics should not be allowed to torture the minorities and infringe their rights. Therefore, you are requested to take all necessary steps to protect the lives, properties and religious places of worships of the minorities in Bangladesh.”

On Tuesday, Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, Bangladesh home minister, said that officials have identified the perpetrator of the Comilla tragedy and that he will be arrested sooner than later. As many as 71 cases have been filed in various regions of the country and 476 people detained in the last six days.
