Upananda Brahmachari | Dhaka | 23-24 March 2013:: The post Shahbag experiences for Bangladeshi Hindus are dreadful than ever. Death sentence to BD Liberation War Criminal Delwar Hossain Sayedee by International Crimes Tribunal of Bangladesh has put the last nail to the coffin of the Hindu future in Bangladesh.
With the land grabbing from Hindus, looting Hindu property and wealth, raping – molesting Hindu women and minor girls, torching Hindu houses, instilling terror to the hearts of minority Hindus of Bangladesh, a new Jihad of Iconoclasts is seen obviously to uproot the Hindu culture and tradition from Bangladesh through rampant destruction of Hindu Temples, Ashrams and Mutths in rural and urban Bangladesh.
In everyday news papers in Bangladesh, the news of torching Hindu Temples, desecration of Hindu holy places, breaking of Hindu deities, looting temple wealth are being published as a common feature, but the news of arresting the Muslim perpetrators are absent anyway. The Jamaat-e-Islami of Bangladesh are conducting this type of nasty Jihad of Iconoclasts only to end up the Hindu rituals and faith from the soil of Bangladesh. The Islamists in Bangladesh have taken a vow to ‘Kaffir free- Hinduless Bangladesh’ before Sayedee is hanged unto death.

The reports are never-ending in nature, but the Secular intellectuals in Bharat (India) and specially in West Bengal do not care for the plight of Bangladeshi Hindus anyway, but they are so vocal to exercise the Minority Rights (Read Muslim Rights) in everywhere in West Bengal and throughout India.
Whenever, such intellectual maroons see these reports, they claim these as concocted. For their kind information, it is authenticated that the above materials are taken from pure Bangladeshi source of reputed news papers and very few incidents actually got chance to be reported in the broad day light.
Buddhist people and Buddhist shrines and Temples are not scared from this Islamic Attack on minorities in Bangladesh in recent times.
A reputed Bengali newspaper in Bangladesh, ‘Prothom Alo‘ has published the horrible account of the torture upon the minority Hindus in the pot Shahbag period. The accounts include the attack upon 319 Hindu temples, Hindu house-holds and shops. This reflection of the plight of BD Hindus in newspaper is more than true though partial.
As per source in Bangladesh, so far thousand small, medium and big temples in Bangladesh has been desecrated, torched, looted and vandalized including the pleasurable and pious Islamic game of destroying Hindu Gods and Goddesses in temples and Hindu homes. This is also a part of Jihad. You can call it a ‘Jihad of Iconoclasts’.
