Attacks after attacks upon Hindu minorities in recent times

With a great danger posing to their existence as citizen of Bangladesh, the minority Hindus have been kept under attack, allegedly by activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and its students wing, in Patgram, northern Lalmonirhat district, for the second time in the last month, mainstream Bangladesh newspapers highlighted the matter all along. The first major attack in the same district on Hindus in the recent turmoil in Bangladesh, was made at in Satpatki Majhipara in Lalmonirhat on Nov 4, 2013.

In Patgram, the attackers beat up Hindu women and children and torched and looted at least five shops and two houses at Ghoshpara village on the third day of the opposition-sponsored recently held 71-hour blockade, said the dailies quoting police and eyewitnesses .

The incident fueled concerns over a fresh spell of attacks on the minority Hindus as men of the village have fled in fear.

Again if you consider the cases of last month as reported by Sri Rabindranath Ghosh, a Hindu Human Rights activist and an advocate of Bangladesh Supreme Court, you cant simply imagine the present situation of Minority Hindus Bangladesh really.

The email as sent by Mr Ghosh to our mail box 0n 30th Nov, narrates the below:

“Hindu Deities (Murthi) broken/set on fire by unknown perpetrators at Shahjadpur and Rangulnia Upazila of  both Serajgonj and Chittagong districts on 26th November, 2013 ( The Daily Protom Alo dated 28.11.2013)

A sense of insecurity amongst the Hindu communities at Rangunia and Shahjadpur prevailing,because their places of worships and deities were broken, desecrated and set on fire by unidentified perpetrators.More than 11 Hindu deities were broken on last Tuesday to defame their religion. As a result the belongings of the Temple were set ablaze.

It is alleged that  “Uttaar Para Kali Mondir” and” Hari Mondir” at Shahjadpur within the district of Serajgonj are the oldest ( two hundred years old) situated. Side by side two temples were attacked on Tuesday night and eleven statues of Hindu deities were broken and set fire on the houses of Shebait –Sree Jowtish Chandra Ghosh and Aynal

Persecution upon BD Hindu Minorities

Hossain before they escaped. As soon as the fire broke out neighbour came at the spot and tried to control the fire from further extinguishing.

In Rangunia Upazila another Temple named “Rajjwa Bhawan Shib Temple” at Rajanagar was attacked on the same night on Tuesday by some unknown perpetrators, the belongings and utensils were stolen and the temple was vandalized.

I, on behalf of Bangladesh Minority Watch (BDMW) and Global Human Rights Defense (GHRD) enquired about the situation. The Assistant Superintendent of Police, Shahjadpur Circle Md. Zillur Rahman informed me, on query, over cell phone No.01713374036 said that a case number 20, dated 27.11.13 under section 295/297 of Bangladesh penal code started but they could not arrest any perpetrators. Md. Zillur also gave me to understand that only two Hindu deities were broken not eleven, but the local people informed us that 11 deities were broken and damaged. But expressed inability to apprehend the criminals to justice as their names are not mentioned in the F.I.R. No accused has yet been apprehended.

Bangladesh Minority Watch also contacted with Md. Waliullah Oli,Officer in Charge of Rangunia Police station at Chittagong over his cell number 01713373645 who game me to understand that a case has been recorded under section 295/336/224 of Bangladesh Penal code without mentioning the names of the accused. No person has yet been arrested.

Bangladesh Minority Watch is very much concerned about the attack on religious places of Minority communities at Shahjadpur and Rangunia and we also demand immediate arrest of the perpetrators and they should be brought to book as per law.”

The email exactly reflected the agony and anxiety of  Bangladeshi Hindus.

In Bonogram bazaar in Santhia upazila, about 40 kilometres from Pabna sadar, Hindus were attacked in Pabna on 2nd Nov, as ‘Jamaat-BNP men’ used false Facebook post concoction for rampage upon frightened Hindu minorities.

The series of persecution upon Bangladeshi Hindu minorities by the majority Muslim persecutors are endless.

No reason or only reason to attack the minority to make a Hindu Less Bangladesh

For the case of Lalmonir Hat, the minority leaders alleged that the villages had come under attack for ‘no specific reason’. However, local union Parishad Chairman Ruhul Amin Babul said, taking the advantage of countrywide blockade they attacked the Hindus who do not belong to any political party. “They did so to create panic in the area and use that to their advantage,” the chairman concluded.

Another minority village also came under havoc where Hindus were allegedly attacked by BNP and Jamaat-Shibir men on October 27 in Shafinagar under the same district, in the first day of the opposition-called shutdown. The vandals beat 12 women as the males fled the scene.

Quoting police and eyewitnesses, newspapers said about 200 to 250 Jamaat-Shibir activists led by Shibir leader Rana Islam brought out a procession in the area and swooped on Hindus’ shops and houses. A number of aggrieved villagers alleged that some local Awami League men, too, were responsible for inciting the violence.

The case of Bonogram bazaar in Santhia upazila had an uniqueness of Islamic rumouring as it was leveled  blasphemy against an innocent minor Hindu boy. Was that a ‘fundamentalism without reason’?

But, for the cases of Serajgonj and Chittagong, Sri Rabibdra Ghosh categorically stated over telephone that the recent spate of communal violence  arising out of the BNP-Awami League political tussle, is nothing but a ‘definite conspiracy’, leading to an end of Bangladesh Hindus very soon, if not checked.

The voice of Sri Ghosh seemed to me very frightened and a matter of fact that Sri Ghsoh was attacked several times by Muslims goons to stop his Hindu defense activities through legal and rights movement.

While this is a reality for a Rights activist and Advocate of Supreme Court, the common Hindu minorities of Bangladesh have the only way to flee from their home and hearth under a silent exodus.

In his article “Future Of The Hindus In Bangladesh” written in Sri Lanka Gurdian, Mr. Swadesh Roy, Executive Editor, the Daily Janakantha, Dhaka, Bangladesh has hinted such trend of Hindus about to leave Bangladesh.

But, if you talk about this trend of exodus of Hindus from Bangladesh, no Govt authority is ready to accept this truth. Whether it is Bangladesh Govt. or the authorities of India, who are very apathetically sinner for this final countdown  for Hindu-less Bangladesh.

One million Hindu minorities have been vanished from Bangladesh in just last decade

BD Hindus fleeing to IndiaIf you want to talk about the silent Hindu exodus from Bangladesh or the Hindu genocide in Bangladesh, the others suspect the reason behind. So far the Hindu minorities have been benefiting  the political gain for both the country Bangladesh and India. While these refugees or the non-legalized Hindus coming from Bangladesh are treated by the politicians as an instrumental of voting in West Bengal (even some portions of Delhi and Mumbai also), in Bangladesh these minority Hindus are treated as kaffir, jimmi and the resource for bare exploitation and pleasure in the hands of majority Muslims there.

But, the scale of such exodus or the genocide have been recorded by very authenticate version, which cannot be denied.

As per Dr. Sabyasachi Ghosh-Dastidar’s book, ”Empire’s last casualty: Indian subcontinent’s vanishing Hindu and other minorities”s, over three million Hindus have been killed in the process of Islamisation in the area now known as Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) since India was Partitioned in 1947. This loss of three million lives remain suppressed from the world. This book claimed a huge 49 Million Hindus Missing From Bangladesh Census due to Islamic atrocities.

But, most recently, the Biggest Hindu Genocide in modern-times has been exposed. 10 million Hindus were massacred by Pakistan Army in Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.

In his research book,  ”The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger and a Forgotten Genocide”, writer Gary J Bass holds the truth that ahead of Bangladesh’s liberation in 1971, the Pakistani Army systematically committed genocide of the Hindu community in the then East Pakistan and the Nixon Administration kept a blind eye to it.

  1. This is most unfortunate but our own govt. is responsible for all these happenings.We ourselves have thrown out the great HINDU word in the dust-bin-thanks to the so-called anti-Hindu Secularism.
    Whole non-Arab Asia is the Hindu World.right from Iran to Indonesia and Mongolia to Australia including all the “stans” of Central Asia and the Buddhist Far-East of China/Japan/and Korea.
    This old problem which is supposed to be Hindu/Muslim, is in fact Hindu/Arab.All non-Arab Asians of any religion or creed are Hindu or of Hindu origin like the European Christians of Jewish origin.The real meaning of Hindu is non-Arab.The need is to understand this great Hindu word in its true perspective. Hindu denotes glorious historical RESISTANCE against Medieval anti-Indian Arab/Muslim Imperialism. From Hindu Rashtra, we have to move on to the great theory and philosophy of the Hindu World which is far bigger than the Arab World which has only 22 countries in it but our Hindu World (ie Non-Arab Asia) contains some 40 countries and touches the Pacific.This whole region is now known as India-Pacific.We all are Hindu this we have to understand once and for ever.
    Arab people were not Muslim earlier; they became Muslim only after Muhammed started this new movement of Islam in 7th cen. Arabia. They became Muslim but remained Arab also as well. They didn’t turn anti-Arab but our people after becoming Muslim, turned anti-Hindu which is the real problem for all these 1400 years and so.
    In the Arab World, there is no clash between being Muslim and Arab but we have the problem of being Hindu and Muslim because of the clash which is there.There should be no clash between being Muslim and Hindu like there is no clash between being Arab and Muslim but because of Medieval anti-Hindu Arab/Muslim Imperialism, this situation has evolved. The basic problem is Imperialism.
    We have to learn this lesson from the Arab people and have to be Hindu as they are Arab in spite of being Muslim. We have to embrace afresh our inherent Hinduness which has suffered because of thousands of years of Imperialism, foreign rule and subjugation. We have to get rid of anti-Hinduism and lovingly accept the fact of being Hindu. Being Hindu and Muslim at the same time should not clash but complement each other the way Arab and Muslim don’t clash with other but are in perfect harmony with each other.
    This will solve the problem. We have to learn from the Arab people to respect and live with our past and heritage. Like Arabness, we have also to love and preserve our Hinduness.
    Is there any Arab anti-Arab? Then why should we be anti-Hindu? This is the main question.
