Temple and Chariot Festival attack in Bangladesh sparks protest at National Press Club, Dhaka. Hindu leaders demand security of minorities in Bangladesh. 

PosterPinak Das | HE Media Bureau | Dhaka | 4 July 2014::  Recent Attacks on an ISKCON temple and continuing persecution of minorities has sparked sit-in demonstration and ‘human chain’ protest rally  in Bangladesh. On 1st July Muslim crowds numbering near 150 people threw bricks at the ISKCON temple gate in Swamibag in Dhaka, the capital city of  of Bangladesh.  More than eight ISKCON members were injured in the sacred Ratha Yatra week .

To protest this attack on ISKCON temple and Chariot festival of Lord Jagannath along with the continuing persecution of Hindus and other minorities in Bangladesh, a sit-in protest program was held outside the National Press Club in Dhaka today on July 4 2014) at 10am onwards.  The program was organized by the Bangladesh Jatiya Hindu Mohajot and its alliance viz. Jago Hindu Parishad, Justice For Hindus forum etc.

Leaders of Bangladesh Jatiya Hindu Mahajote on Friday at a protest rally in the city called on the Awami League-led government to take immediate steps to stop attacks on Hindu minorities across the country.

Jatiya Hindu Mahajote (National Hindu Grand Alliance), Bangladesh  which is actually  a rights body of the Hindu minorities held this rally in front of the National Press Club, where its general secretary, Sri Gobinda Chandra Pramanik said that  attacks on the Hindu minorities increased  at many places in the country in recent times.

“Some miscreants attacked ISKCON temple at Sawmibag in the old part of Dhaka during the preparation of Rathajatra last week, but they were not punished”, Gobinda Chandra Pramanik communicated to the press.

Moreover, the Hindu minorities in Bangladesh have been  suffering from insecurities for the attacks on their temples, houses and business centers in different parts of the country, the Mahajote leader clarified.

He demanded separate voting systems in 50 seats of the parliament reserved for the Hindu minorities, to ensure their representation in the House in a meaningful way.

Chaired by Sri Manoj Kumar Mandal, president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bangladesh, the rally was addressed by many Hindu leaders like Sri Ananda Biswas, Sri Manik Chandra Sarkar and Sri Arun Majumder.

The rally was followed by a protest procession that paraded the city streets with slogans, demands in poster and festoons.

A contingent of police force was deployed there to maintain the rally and see the matters related to law and order.

Dying Hindus in Bangladesh: A concern of US, not of India. What a shame!

Posted by hinduexistence on November 7, 2013

Attack upon Hindus in BangladeshBD Persecution on Hindu Minorities

While US is deeply concerned with the attacks on Hindu minorities in Bangladesh, a blind Indian Govt. is worthlessly keeping silence.

US Embassy of Dhaka urges to stop Attack on Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh

Statement from the U.S. Embassy Dhaka: Urges to stop Attack on Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh.

Upananda Brahmachari | Dhaka | 07 Nov 2013:: The United States expressed deep concern over the recent attacks on Hindus in Pabna and Lalmonirhat and asked the government to take action against the criminals and protect rights of minorities.

In a statement released on Wednesday, 6th Nov, the US embassy said, “We call on all those involved in these incidents to desist from abusing the rights of minorities, and ask all parties to ensure they are stopped immediately and the perpetrators are held accountable.”

“We ask the Government of Bangladesh to act authoritatively against those who incited and committed this violence and protect the rights of minorities.” – the statement ascertained the crucial intimidation on the marginal Hindu minorities about to flee from Bangladesh to find a safer place in Bharat.

The US embassy further said they were also “deeply concerned by the deaths, injuries, and ongoing violence associated with hartals.”

“While engaging in peaceful protest is a fundamental democratic right, we firmly believe violence is never the answer,” the statement added.

“We call on all parties to ensure that their protests are peaceful and we look to the Government of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all its citizens and encourage all Bangladeshis to peacefully express their views,” said the statement.

While the US Govt. is deeply concerned with the attacks on Hindu minorities in Bangladesh, a blind Indian Govt. is worthlessly keeping silence. They have many issues like CHOGM, coming elections, Communal Violence Bill, minority rights in India, but they never make out some seconds to think over the fatal fate of the Hindu minorities of Bangladesh or their rights truncated out.

The post pronouncement (from the beginning of the death sentence ordered to  1971 war criminal Delwar Hossian Sayeedi to the 152 soldiers for mutiny crimes in 2009) conflicts between the ruling Awami League and the opposition lead by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), always tormented the fate of the decreasing Hindu minorities in Bangladesh in a regular basis.

Hindu properties are  always in the direct target of BNP-Jamaat or Awami League in disguise

Hindu properties are always in the direct target of BNP-Jamaat or Awami League in disguise.

Though the ‘Jamaat-BNP men’ were allegedly accused for all the major attacks upon the Hindu minorities in recent, the so-called friends of Hindus and ruling Awami League has been completely failure to give any safe guards to the persecuted Hindus in Pabna or Lalmonirhat.

On 3rd Nov, a Muslim mob, frenzied by a baseless claim that a Hindu boy disrespected Prophet Muhammad, tore apart the corrugated iron sheet walls of a Hindu house at Bonogram in Santhia of Pabna Upazila, in order to vandalize the Hindu house hold and to spread fear among the Hindu minorities.  The fanatic Muslim  claimed one Rajib Saha, son Babul Saha had maligned Prophet Mohammad in a facebook page.

A mob went on the rampage in Bonogram-Santhia Hindu- dominated neighbourhood  following reports that the boy from the minority Hindu community had committed blasphemy, prompting the country’s High Court to order arrest of attackers within 24 hours.

The Muslim mob satiated themselves by vandalizing 26 houses, damaging several idols in temples and private houses and and forcing about 150 families to flee the area. The incident prompted the High Court to take suo motu cognizance, asking the Inspector General of Police to ensure the arrest of the culprits within 24 hours and deployment of adequate police forces in the area to protect the minorities. “We have arrested nine of the perpetrators of the attack in the past two days and are looking for the others,” officer in-charge of the local police station Rezaul Karim told Indian News Agency, PTI.

Rajib Saha is a class-X student of Bonogram Miapur High School, preparing for SSC examination and his father, Babul  has  a shop  in the Bonogram Bazaar.

Attack and Atrocities upon Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh are all time high.

Attack and Atrocities upon Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh are all time high.

Soon, hundreds of people stormed Babul Saha’s house in Bonogram. Unable to find the boy, the mob got hold of Babul and took him to the bazaar. There, he was warned that he and his son would be tried for “defaming the prophet”.

Despite protesting repeatedly that his son was innocent, Babul was mercilessly hit and kicked upon. At one stage, some locals intervened to save him and confined him to a shop.

In the meanwhile, another gang of Jamaat e Islami and BNP, more aggressive and violent, set fire to Babul’s house. Later, more gangs joined in to attack the predominantly Hindu village and vandalized about 26 homesteads.

Police and RAB (Rapid Action Battalion) reached  to the spot after the fundamentalists completed their Islamic duties  to the Hindu kaffirs as prescribed in the unholy parts of Quran.

The Daily Star, a leading news paper in Bangladesh has found that the Facebook page whose photocopies were used to incite the attacks on the Bonogram Hindu community has no links with Rajib. [Details here.]

Basudev Dhar reports in Dainik Statesman that the attack on Saha family of Bonogram is nothing but a planned conspiracy which was hatched out of a denial of paying a ransom of Rupees Two lakhs as claimed by some Muslim hooligans at the time the marriage of his daughter some months back. As Babul Saha, a rich businessman of Bonogram Market denied to pay that unreasonable amount, the perpetrators threatened him for a dire consequences. Consequently, the attack on Saha family came to them and others during the hartal hegemony.

Actually, the BNP-Jamaat supported Muslim perpetrators and even the communal elements in others parties regularly collect the life-saving tax (read Jizya) from the Hindu minorities under severe pressure and persecution.

On 4th Nov 2013, at least 15 people, including six women, were injured when some BNP men stormed a Hindu village and vandalized and looted houses at Satpatki Majhipara under Lalmonirhat Sadar upazila.

Villagers complained that they came under attack as they refused to pay an extortion demand by the BNP men.

Traumatized by the violent attack, Hindu women and children of 125 families fled the village and took refuge in Muslim neighbours’ houses at a nearby village, said Jamir Uddin, officer-in-charge at Lalmonirhat Sadar Police Station.

But, it has been reported that extradited Hindu victims in their new refuge again face humiliation, molestation, taxation, persecution and all morbid situations.

Armed with sharp local weapons, a gang of about 18 BNP men, led by local Chhatra Dal activist Shaon Islam, struck the village around 12:30pm. They ransacked about 40 houses and looted valuables from those, said witnesses.

The Daily Star reporter covered the incident from ground level while villagers took an injured Hindu man to hospital at Satpatki Majhipara in Lalmonirhat. Villagers claimed that armed BNP and Jamaat men attacked 40 homes of the Hindus and looted valuables after the Hindus refused to be extorted by them. [Details here.]

Basudev Dhar, the Senior Correspondent of Dainik Statesman, Dhaka desk informed that the BNP-Jamaat activists were forcefully collecting money as the expenditure of the hartal. As the Hindus were not ready to give the same, the angry Jamaat-BNP activists plan fully victimized the minority people there.

In the last week, 18 shops of Hindus torched in Lalmonirhat amidst the hartal, turned as an easy prey to to attack minority Hindus of Bangladesh.

Opposition activists allegedly torched and looted at least 18 shops owned by people of Hindu people in Patgram upazila of Lalmonirhat early Monday on 28th Oct.

While leaving, the attackers whom the victims identified as “BNP-Jamaat activists” also threatened the shop owners with dire consequences if they disclose their names to police.

Locals said there were at least 50 shops in Shafinagar Bazar but the attackers torched and looted only the shops owned by the people of Hindu community.

A victim told  that a group of BNP and Jamaat men entered the market and set fire to the shops without any provocation. “Some of them were wearing black masks,” he said.

But the man declined to disclose names of the attackers fearing further attacks. Sohrab Hossain, officer-in-charge of Patgram Police Station said he heard about the incident but could not send any force there due to shortage of police members.

Sanjay Dutt, general secretary of Bawra union unit of ruling Awami League, blamed BNP and Jamaat activists for torching the shops. But, Shamsul Alam, president of Bawra union unit of BNP, however denied the allegation.

It has been reported that on the same day of 28th Oct, in Narinda area of Old Dhaka, the Bhagyakul Mistanna Bhandar (Sweets shop of a Hindu owner), near Gaudiya Math was rampaged and partially looted by the supporters on BNP-Jamaat activists, while a rally was passing there in support of hartal.

In a protest of Pabna and Lalmonirhat attack on Hindu Minorities, the Bangladesh Hindu-Bauddha-Christian Oikya Parishad (BHBCOP) and Bangladesh Puja Udjapan Parishad (BPUP) organized a human chain, demonstration and press meet at National Press Club, Dhaka on Tuesday, 5th Nov.

The leadership of BHBCOP and BPUP alleged that the Hindus have been victimized since 1975 on the basis on fanatic propaganda of Islam and communal politics of BNP-Jammat, as a result of which a huge numbers of Hindu minorities were compelled to leave Bangladesh. All the parties more or less ignored the interest of Hindus and other minorities of Bangladesh.

The leadership pointed out that all parties are same including ruling Awami League.  At the time of mishap and tragedy of the Hindus in Pabna, the Minister of State, Home Department, Mr. Shamsul Islam Tuku was present at the distance of 15 minutes from the place of occurrence. But, he did not reach there to help or rescue the victimized Hindus and his police reached there after 3 hours later. The attitude of all the political parties are really embarrassing to the existing Hindu minorities in Bangladesh.

In this demonstration before National Press Club, Prof. Nimchandra Bhowmik, Advocate Rana Dasgupta, Advocate Subrota Choudhury, Kajal Debnath and Basudev Dhar delivered their lectures and demanded a free and fair Bangladesh without any discrimination upon the minorities there.

But, it is very much astonishing that the mysterious Hindus Parliamentarians of Bangladesh have never expressed their views publicly over the atrocities upon Hindu people there. There are seven Hindu MPs in Bangladesh, 3 from BNP and  4 from Awami League.

Lists of Hindu MPs of Bangladesh are given below. The readers should knock them.

………………..

To keep the protests alive and effective against the atrocities, abominations and attacks upon minority Hindus, the Bangladesh National Grand Hindu Alliance will organize a big agitation on Friday, 8th November at 10 a.m. before the National Press Club, Dhaka. Simultaneously, the Bangladesh Hindu-Baudhha-Christian Kalyan Front will organize Protest Meeting all over Bangladesh  from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturday, 9th Nov.

In a press release, Advocate Gautam Chakroborty of  BD HBC Kalyan Front conveyed that whenever a political crisis happens in the country, only the Hindu , Buddhist and Christian  temple, shrines and worship places are attacked by Muslim fanatics. They want to create a communal division in the country.

The statement condemned the attacks upon Budhhists and Hindus in  Ramu , Ukhiya , Teknaf  and Patiya in recent past one after another, burning of the traditional temple and scriptural books, attack upon business, households, temples and lives of Hindus in Santhia in Pabna district and physical assault, arson on  Hindu community houses of Bonogram recently and the havoc upon Hindus of Lalmonirhat. It’s really sad . The organisation demanded the punishment for perpetrators found guilty through judicial investigation.

From a reliable source it is known that the Central Govt of India has alerted the Border Security Force (BSF)  in the eastern sector to check any apprehended exodus or infiltration as a result of the recent turmoil ongoing in Bangladesh.

Gutless Hindu MPs in Bangladesh. Plight of Bangladeshi Hindus as We are Guilty.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 28, 2013

Look at ourselves to find Culprits for the Ethnic Cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh.

Dr. Richard L. Benkin

Dr Richard L. Benkin speaking in a public forum

Dr Richard L. Benkin speaking in a public forum.

If my recent trip to South Asia taught me anything, it is that the solution to stopping the ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Bangladesh lies within us.  And so do the obstacles.  This is a serious human rights travesty that has been flying under the world’s radar for at least 40 years as Hindus went from almost a fifth of the new nation of Bangladesh (1971) to less than eight percent today.  Throughout that period, there has been a torrent of confirmed and specifically anti-Hindu atrocities that have proceeded with the tacit approval of successive governments representing all political stripes in Bangladesh.  According to Professor Sachi Dastidar of the State University of New York, the number of Hindus murdered, forced to emigrate, and forced to convert to Islam, or never born as a direct result come to 50 million.  That is a third of Bangladesh’s current population, which shows how that country is as much Hindu as Muslim—or would be were it not for this creeping jihad.

Bangladesh still has the world’s third largest Hindu population with about 12 million Hindus living without protection from radicals and others who can attack and abuse them with impunity because the government they helped vote into office turns a blind eye toward their victimization.  And yet, what major media outlets report this ongoing ethnic cleansing?  What internationally hailed human rights organizations champion a fight against it—or even mention it in any significant way?  That the answer to both questions is “none” does not mean they all are anti-Hindu or funded by of petro dollars.

As Ceasar said in William Shakespeare’s play, “The fault dear Brutus is not in the stars but in ourselves.”

On February 18, I was in Bangladesh where I embraced Hindu victims and confronted their victimizers, stood with their defenders Hindu and Muslim, and confronted Bangladeshi officials participating in and allowing these atrocities.  I had also spent a great deal of time with Advocate Rabindra Ghosh, who puts his own well-being aside to fight to stop the atrocities.

That night, I arrived at my hotel to find two Hindu Members of Parliament (MPs), waiting to speak with me.  They came expecting well-wishes, photo-ops, and hand-wringing about how bad others are.  But they represent Dinajpur and Khulna, two areas in Bangladesh where anti-Hindus abuse is a way of life, where the Awami League government continues its predecessors’ practice of purposely turning a blind eye to this “quiet case of ethnic cleansing,” and where these government officials who say they represent the Bangladeshi Hindu community sit silently while their co-religionists are slaughtered.  Having freshly returned from one of them where I met victim after victim, I was in no mood for their sort of false solidarity.  So, after a brief introduction, I asked, “Okay, tell me what you—as Hindu MPs—are doing about the ethnic cleansing of your people here.”

             “We have done many things. “  Answered the man from Khulna where fresh atrocities are occurring even while I am writing this.

            “Many things?  You know that’s [a lie],” I replied sharply.  “Hindus in your district are being raped and killed, their land snatched, Mandirs destroyed; and no prosecutions.  So, don’t tell me that you’re doing ‘many things.’  How many Hindu Members of Parliament are there?”

             “Seventeen.”

         ..“Seventeen?  That’s a lot of people; and you mean to tell me that with that many in parliament, you still haven’t done anything?”

             “Well, the party—“

             “That’s your other mistake, and I tried to tell this to Hindus before the last election.  Minorities need to form their own political party.  Right now, the Awami League doesn’t have to do anything.  They know you’ll vote for them anyway.  And the BNP doesn’t have to do anything because they know you won’t vote for them.”

And I went on for some time, peppering them, demanding, egging them on, etc.  I told them that they should be ashamed that I come half way around the world while they do nothing here for their own people.  Pointing to Rabindra Ghosh, I said that “he has extensive evidence that there are Members of Parliament involved big time in grabbing Hindu land, even rapes and other atrocities.  You know what your enemies think of you as you sit next to them smiling?  ‘We can steal their land, rape their daughters and sisters, and just give them a few Taka.”

Someone started to say something about there being problems.  “Problems?  Problems?  I don’t want to hear about problems,” I said.  “You think I don’t have problems?  Or that he [Rabindra Ghosh] has none? ‘Problems’ are just an excuse for not doing what’s right.”

They sat either with their face buried in their hands (people in the lobby were beginning to take notice) or looked up at the ceiling; but I would not let up.  For years, we have been struggling against a system and a government that wants to keep the issue buried while keeping the destruction of Bangladesh’s Hindus going strong.  People like these two men are in a position to do something about it but do not.

I reminded them that an American Christian, former US Congressman Bob Dold raised the issue of the Bangladeshi Hindus on the floor of the US House, while they remain silent.  Referring again to Rabindra Ghosh, I noted that “this man has extensive, direct, and verified evidence of enough atrocities so that each Hindu MP can begin each session of the Jatiya Sangsad (Bangladeshi parliament) by reading a new one in the record.  Perhaps they can be the agents who force the government to act or the world to take notice.”

Right now, however, they refuse to acknowledge their responsibility to act.  And while they sit silently and watch their people being brutalized, organizations like Struggle for Hindu Existence under the leadership of Upananda Brhmachari, is providing a public forum to do what they are not:  exposing the truth of what is happening to Hindus in Bangladesh so that people will act to stop the atrocities.

It has been more than a month since our encounter, and none of Bangladesh’s 17 Hindu MPs have taken any action or uttered a word of protest even while the atrocities continue and their constituents suffer.  If these “leaders” are too cowardly to act, perhaps the voters in their districts should vote for people who are not.

Iconoclast Jihad in Bangladesh: Most of the Hindu Temples are about to destroy by Jamaat-e-Islami.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 23, 2013

Jihad of Iconoclasts

Thousand of Hindu Temples vandalized Islamically. Most of the Hindu Temples are about to destroy in rural & urban Bangladesh by Jamaat-e-Islami under an  Iconoclast Jihad.

PLIGHT OF BD HINDUS IN PROTHOM ALO NEWS PAPERUpananda 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.

As per report published in The Daily Star, Religious bigots vandalised five more Hindu temples and torched idols in Bogra and Bagerhat just on 19th March.

‘In Bogra, they damaged at least eight idols in four temples at Sonaray and Rameshwarpur unions of Gabtoli upazila.

In the morning, locals found the idols in the temples vandalised.

Shishir Karmakar of Rameshwarpur said local Hindus were worried about the attacks.

Bogra deputy commissioner, police super, local AL leaders and minority community leaders visited the affected temples.The Hindus did not disclose the names of the attackers for lack of security, AH Azam Khan, president of Gabtoli upazila unit Awami League, told The Daily Star.

Bangladeshe Hinduder Upar Atyachar

Two cases were filed with Gabtoli Police Station in this connection.

Incensed at the attacks on temples, locals in Sonaray and Rameshwarpur unions brought out protest processions.

Contacted, Gabtoli Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Monira Sultana said financial support would be provided to the authorities of the affected temples to repair the damaged temples.

A correspondent from Bagerhat adds : Religious fanatics damaged and torched several idols of Dakkhin Para Sarbojonin Durga Mandir in Uttar Gopalpur village under Kachua upazila early yesterday.

Quoting witnesses, president of the temple committee Pulin Bihari Paik said a gang of fanatics entered the temple around 4:00am; damaged several idols and set the temple afire.

Seeing the flames at the temple, locals rushed to the scene and doused the fire.

Neither the temple committee nor police could identify the attackers.

Kachua UNO Md Ashraful Islam visited the temple in the morning.

Meanwhile, around 120 people were sued in Khulna city on Tuesday night on charges of vandalising and torching temples, shops and houses of Hindus in Banikpara Pabla area under Daulatpur Police Station, reports our Khulna correspondent.

Police also picked up five people in this connection from different parts of the city around midnight Tuesday.

The detainees are Shahidul, 23, Limon, 18, Halim, 22, Shahabuddin, 40, and Shamim, 25.

Tilok Goswami, general secretary of Banikpara Pabla Sarbojonin Kalibari Mandir committee, filed the case, said Daulatpur police.

Earlier, police had arrested Humayun Kabir, 26, and Arman, 28, in connection with the arson attacks. The two were sent to jail through a local court.

On Monday night (18 March 2013), religious bigots ransacked and torched Banikpara Pabla Sarbojonin Kalibari Mandir, Gachtala Temple and over 50 houses and shops of Hindus in the city.

Over 31 temples, hundreds of houses and shops of Hindu minorities have been ransacked, torched and looted across the country since the International Crimes Tribunal-1 on February 28 sentenced Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee to death for committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War in 1971′.

As illustrated by the correspondent in The Daily Star about the fresh attack upon Hindus and Hindu Temples, it goes further.

Yet again religious fanatics have attacked temples, houses and shops of Hindus in four districts as reported in The Daily Star on 22 March 2013.

Gazipur Lakshi Mandir Vandalized by Muslims in BD

‘Since Jamaat leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee was handed down a death sentence in a war crimes case on February 28, more than 26 temples, 175 houses and dozens of shops of the minorities across the country have been vandalised, torched and looted.

Basudev Dhar, president of Greater Dhaka Puja Committee, yesterday aid these communal attacks were demoralising many Hindu families.

“The worst pain for the victims comes when they are left alone after such attacks,” he said. “The leaders and members of parliament have not stood by the Hindus the way they should have.”

“In the past,” he added, “we have resisted such attacks together.”

In Khulna, over 150 people equipped with iron rods and other lethal weapons attacked Banikpara Pabla Sarbojonin Kalibari Mandir around 9:00pm Monday.

When the rioters stormed the temple, some devotees already had gathered there for prayers. The assault left a person named Khokon injured.

The rioters also attacked Gachtala temple. Over 50 Hindu homes and shops adjacent to the two temples were vandalised and torched.

According to locals, law enforcers did not come on time to prevent the attacks.

Khulna Puja Udjapon Parishad held a protest rally in front of Banikpara Pabla Temple yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, police have arrested two people, Humayun Kabir, 26, and Arman, 18, in this connection, said ASI Anwar Hossain of Daulatpur Police Station. The identities of the arrestees could not be known immediately.

Police said a gang of 10 went to the house of freedom fighter Amulya Chandra Roy, 62, around 9:00pm and started beating him indiscriminately, reported our Chapainawabganj correspondent.

As family members and neighbours went to his rescue, they too were beaten up. The attackers fled the scene quickly. None of the victims or community leaders would say anything about the attackers.

Speaking in return for anonymity, some locals said the neighbourhood is surrounded by Jamaat strongholds and that Jamaat-Shibir men might have a hand in the attack.

Abu Bakkar Siddique Shyamol, an aide to State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Motahar Hossain, who is also the local lawmaker, said the anti-Liberation forces might have been behind the attack to create panic among the Hindus.

The local unit of the Awami League would bear the medical expenses of those injured, he added.

Gazipur Sadar Upazila Nirbahi Officer Fouzia Rahman has visited the spot.

SM Kamruzzaman, officer-in-charge of Joydevpur Police Station, said they were looking into the matter’.

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’.

Global reaction against the brutal assault on Bangladesh Hindu Minorities by Jamaat e Islami after the pronouncement of execution of BD war criminal Sayedee.

Upananda Brahmachari | Dhaka | Sunday 3 March 2013 :: The Rights organisations in Bangladesh and abroad are now contemplating a bigger fight  against the recurring atrocities upon the Bangladesh Minorities, especially upon Hindu Minorities in recent days after the pronouncement of execution of BD war criminal Delwar Hossain Sayedee by Special Bangladesh Tribunal named as “International Crimes Tribunal” (ICT).

Sayedee was convicted for the severe charges as accused of working with the Al-Badr and Rajakar group during the independence struggle and carrying out numerous atrocities, including forcibly converting Hindus to Islam. Sayedee formed some  small groups to loot and seize the property of Bengali Hindus and those who supported and participated in Liberation of Bangladesh.

The tribunal found Sayeede guilty of eight out of the 20 charges levelled against him. These were murder, torture, rape and forcibly converting Hindus to Islam.

Getting disappointed and being arrogant with the ‘hang to death’ order for Sayedee, the fundamental Islamic force led by Jamaat e Islam of Bangladesh lashed out a political confrontation with the opponents and wrecked a havoc upon the Hindu Minorities in a most unreasonable retaliation.

In a press statement, it is categorically said that ” We are in a very critical crisis period, when a matter of Justice towards the settlement of anti-liberation crime has been vitiated in a communal texture. A heinous torture, murder, loot, assault,  destruction of temples are rampantly done in an utter communal method to extinct the Hindu community in Bangladesh”. The organizers of Human Chain and Protest rally expressed their grave concern for the destruction and burning of 1500 Hindu household, 50 temples, murder of 3 Hindu minority people, injuring over 100 Hindus in last three days of spreading violence all over Bangladesh.  Such targeted violence upon Hindu minorities by Jamaati hooligans covering 22 districts including Noakhali, Chattagram, Coxbazar, Kumilla, Laxmipur, Gaibandha, Brahmanbaria, Syllet, Satkhira, Bagerhat and  Thakurgaon.

An estimated 100 crores of loss has been levied on Hindus by the torture friendly Jamaati beasts under human skin. The leadership in the protest rally and human chain has been expressed their concern to the deterioration of  minority status of Hindus under an unbearable Islamic persecution and threat perception.

In Bharat (India), the protesters of  ‘Gairik Bharat’ (Saffron India) held a protest demonstration in front of Silchar District Collectorate Office, where they burnt the effigy of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hassina in a protest of recent inhumane torture upon Hindus and destruction and desecration of Hindu Temples in Bangladesh.

Hindu Existence Forum has specific news for upcoming  protest rallies in USA and European Countries to express solidarity with the Bangladesh minorities under a severe torture of the fundamentalist whatever under the regimen of BNP or Awami League. The series of violation of Human Rights and brutal torture upon Bangladeshi Hindus in 1946-47, 1971, 1990, 1992 and 2001 is not only a pathetic history, still it is a horrible experience of death and loss of everything in the days and minutes of 2013 also.

Eyewitnesses and police said the assailants set fire to at least six Buddhist temples and nearly 20 homes and looted and damaged more than a hundred others until 3am in the hate attack.

COX’S BAZAR, Bangladesh (AP) — Thousands of Bangladeshi Muslims angry over an alleged derogatory photo of the Islamic holy book Quran on Facebook set fires in at least 10 Buddhist temples and 40 homes near the southern border with Myanmar, authorities said Sunday.

Cox’s Bazar violence: 6 pagodas burnt down, 100 houses vandalised << Click here.

A mob comprises of around 25,000 people, angered by a photograph posted in Facebook, torched dozens of homes of the Buddhist community and vandalised six 100-year-old pagodas as a sectarian violence broke out at Merunloa village in Ramu upazila here Saturday night.

“Police patrols have been strengthened in the Buddhist-majority areas,” SP Jahangir added. 

Paramilitary BGB personnel have been called out to restore order in the affected areas, Suresh Barua, teacher at a local school, said. 

Several houses and Mithhachharhi Bonbihar, some five kilometres from Ramu Sadar Upazila, were set on fire around 3:30am, said General Secretary of Ramu Upazila Juba League Nitish Barua.

A 100-foot high under-construction Buddha sculpture was also ravaged in Bimukti Bidarshan Babna Centre in the locality, he added. 

Gias Uddin Ziku, Office Secretary of Cox’s Bazaar district unit of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal and Chairman of Jhilangja Union, said he dispersed Jamaat-e-Islami activists who had gathered around localities of ethnic minorities. He also said he had informed the police of the incident. 

Local people said followers of an Islamist party led by several leaders took out a procession around 10pm on Saturday alleging that a photo was uploaded on the Facebook to defame the holy book. 

At a subsequent rally, they claimed a youth by the name of Uttam Barua had pasted the purportedly offensive photo in the social networking website and demanded his arrest. 

Another militant procession was taken out that marched down towards the Barua Parha around 11:30pm and some youths from the procession set some homes of the Buddhists on fire. 

From then on, 15 homes, three temples including ‘Saada Ching’ and ‘Laal Ching’ were burned to the ground, Dipak Barua, a local, said. 

Police, local administration officials and public representatives were trying to quell the arson and destruction that continued at least until 1:30am. 

A local journalist, who was hiding with family in the neighbourhood that came under attack, told bdnews24.com the Cheranghata Barakyang Temple close to his home was set alight. He said the flames died out around 2:45am. 

Also, Ramu Maitree Bihar, Saada Chinglaal, Ramy Sina Bihar and Jadiparha Bouddha Bihar were torched, ransacked and looted. 

At least 10 Buddhist villages were attacked and Purbo Merongloa locality that had around 20 houses was burned. 

Chairman of Ramu Upazila Council Sohel Sarwar Kajal said efforts were on to quell the tension. 

Several Facebook users, meanwhile, said Uttam Barua, the Ramu youth being accused of Quran defamation, did not post the photo deemed to be offensive to Islam. They said Uttam was tagged in the photo from a Facebook ID called ‘Insult Allah’ and so he was in no way responsible. 

Recently, there was much hullabaloo was created after Rohingya Muslims tried to cross the border into Bangladesh fleeing the religious riot in Myanmar’s Buddhist-majority Rakhine state. A section of the civil society in Bangladesh reacted to the government refusing the refugees entry. The government believes communal forces were behind this incident. 

[So. it is established that the anti Buddhist - anti Hindu Force in Bangladesh premeditatedly attacked the peace loving minorities in BD for an ethnic cleansing with the issues of Myanmar Muslim torture or desecration of Quran in very heinous Islamic attitude. Same time a portion of BD media and political part are shedding their tears for such an attack upon BD minorities for a habitual activities of majority Muslims there. All concerned in Bangladesh are supporting the total removal of BD Hindu-Buddhists-Christians-Other minorities from that Islamic land.  Then what is the remedial measures? 1. Protest vehemently to BD Govt. with strictures. 2. Direct intervention of Respected Dalai Lama in this matter. What he is doing right now in his fortified seat in  Dharmshala (India) with huge wealth and international fame?  3. Stop relations with Muslims treating them as the supporters of a most uncivilized and communal groups. 4. Attack Mosques and Muslim in Buddhist Countries, as a tremendous retaliation to sensitize the insane Islamic zealots as the last measure. At least Myanmar and Sri Lanka should start actions.
