Bangladesh Hindu Persecution under Awami League Govt unabated.
Pinakpani Das | HENB | Dhaka | March 21, 2015:: So called ‘Secular’ Awami League Govt in Bangladesh is becoming more and more indifferent to address the current Hindu persecution in Bangladesh and some how the black days of ‘Communal’ BNP regimen are returning fast as thunderstorm over the Hindu minorities in the country with 1.2 Crore Hindus.
Thanks to a section of Bangladesh media who regularly flashes some of the atrocities on Hindus for their demeaning identity as ‘Kaffir’ or ‘Malaun’, though not exhaustive. And we must convey our gratitude to two Indian websites, http://www.hindujagruti.org and http://www.hinduexistence.org, who regularly ventilate the painful situtations of Bangladeshi Hindu minorities as a mark of solideraty to the minority Hindus, struggling for their existence in Bangladesh.
On 27 Feb, Friday, Muslim miscreants destroyed the Shiva Temple in Alisharkul-Baropala village in Sreemangal (upazila) in Moulavi Bazar district of Sylhet division. Sri Jahar Tarafdar of Sreemangal Puja Udjapon Parishad told HENB reporter that Hindus in that locality have been observing various Hindu religious programmes in the temple complex of Mangal Chandi from pre-partition age of India and pakistan. This complex has five decorated temples viz Shiva, Radhagovinda, Bhairav, Kali and Mata Mangal Chandi. In that fall of the night of Friday, one nearby resident, Ranjit Das heard some alarming sounds of breaking something with commotion of people. When the local Hindu villagers chased, the miscreants fled away. But, the Shiva Deity of the temple was seen broken into pieces in a very miserable condition. An FIR has been lodged, but the Muslim SI of Sreemangal PS tried to switch over the matter by saying,’any Hindu might do it in drunken jolly’.
In Chandpur District of Chittagong Division, armed Muslim hooligans led by Abul Hossain Patwari, Kamrul Patwari and Rassel Patwari attacked the local Hindu shop-keepers of Natun Bazar in front of Electric Office all on a sudden. The Muslim gang looted the Hindu shops rampantly and destroyed the Hindu assets on broad day light on 27 Feb, Friday. Bangladeshi Muslims now prefer Friday for attacking Hindus, may be for any great Islamic reason! Anyway the protesting Hindus lodged an FIR vide 55 of Chandpur Model PS dt. 28/02/2015, but no miscreants were arrested so far. Advocate Ranjit Roychoudhury, Secretary of Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad expresses his resentment for the police non-action and he opined that opines that Hindu minorities in Bangladesh are the regular victim of land and business grabbing by the Majority Muslim fundamentals.
In its report under the headline, “Gender Violence and Land Grabbing Increased in 2014“, the UNREPRESENTED NATIONS AND PEOPLES ORGANIZATION, scribed a pitiable condition of the minorities living in Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh. The revealing reports say, “210 families migrated from Bangladesh to neighbouring countries after experiencing threats and land grabbing organized by state affiliated actors in 2014. In addition, gender based violence doubled during the same year resulting in 122 cases of sexual and physical violence against women and girls. If the Chittagong Hill Tracts Peace Accord will not be respected and implemented until April 2015, the region might face turmoil and escalation of violence.”
On the very Friday on 27 March, the family of Sri Lakhshan Chandra Barman (80 years) was evicted from their age old paternal residence of Nilfamari’s (Nilphamari in Rangpur Division) Jaldhaka Municipal Town. Being evicted from there landed property on JL No 57 of CS Khatian No 138 and SA Khatian No 166, all the 1o members of Barman family took refuge in Jaldhaka Town and giving a sitting demonstration in front of the concerned District Magistrate for a justice. Burman family purchased that landed property from a Hindu, measuring 2 acre and 46 satak for making residential house and agriculture. But, on 25 February some Muslim land grabbers led by Safulla Mamud, Rafiqul, Saidul, Golap, Mokhlechar and Motaleb forcefully captured 25 satak of land within the Burman’s residential plot and started torture. On Friday, the Muslim hooligans started threatening the Burman families brandishing swords and firearms and finally evicted the Hindu family from their home.
A tribal student of Xth standard was gangraped at Dighinala Banbihar area in Khagrachari District. The adolescent Buddhist girl was to attend a religious programme of “Mahamangal Sutra Path”, but intercepted by Chatra League leader (Student wing of Awami League) Sohel Rana and his gang and raped overnight at Kabakhali area.
From above it is evident most of the attacks are made on Friday and Bangladesh Police has nothing to do it as if directed by the present Awami League Govt in Bangladesh. The ruling Awami league’s student wing Chatra League was involved in Biswajit killing in Dhaka. The popular anti Hijab Hindu nurse Anjali Chowdhury’s killing was also perpetrated by Chara League, as concerned persons opined. And ‘Muktomona’ Avijit Roy’s killing in this Awami League regime is a shame to all. How, it may be called the present Awami League Govt as a saviour of Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh? Actually, it is proved now that the BNP and Awami League are the two sides of a same Fundamental coin in Bangladesh.
Obviously, this Awami League Govt in Bangladesh is the friends of the Friday attackers on minority people in Bangladesh.
Postscript: We have no words to convey our condolence to the bereaved families in Yemen whose family members are killed in the deadly Islamic blast in a Shia Mosque on Friday.
