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.
On Friday, the UN Gen Secy, Mr. Ban Ki Moon has also conveyed his peace message for the BD Govt and Jammatis both to maintain the harmony for Bangladesh people and requested to resist the ongoing violence to protect the rights of minorities there. In an UN Press release, Mr. Ban Ki Moon urged BD Govt and the confronting Jamaati to stop the violence immediately, in order to avoid any fatal consequence in further extension.
As per report, the Bangladesh Hindu-Bauddha-Christian Unity Council (BHBCUC) of US chapter called a press conference on Saturday (2nd March) at a venue of Jackson Heights in New York.
While the Council has already conveyed the detailed atrocities upon the Hindu Minorities in Noakhali and Chattagram in US External Affairs Department, UN Human Rights Council, Human Rights Watch and Amensty International, the body of BHBCUC has planned to organize Human Chains at Diversity Plaza on Monday (3rd March) and at the office of UN on 10th March in New York City.
The British High Commissioner in Dhaka, Mr. Robert Gibson expressed his deep concern and resentment upon the attack upon the religious places and the recent attacks in BD in a press conference on Sunday 3rd March held in Dhaka.
The Bangladesh Hindu Buddha Christian Oikya Parishad formed a human chain in Chattagram Saturday to protest what they called ‘heinous attacks’ by Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatra Shibir on the country’s minority communities in the wake of the death verdict for Jamaat leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee.
On saturday, in front of Dahaka National Press Club, a mammoth Human Chain, Black March and Protest Rally were conducted by Hindu Buddha Christian Oikya Parishad, Bangladesh Jatiyo Hindu Mahajot (Bangladesh National Hindu Grand Alliance – BNHGA), Bangladesh Puja Udjapon Porishad, Bangladesh Sevashram Foundation, ISKCON, Motijhil Thana Sarbojanin Puja Committee and others to raise an united voice to end the victimization of Hindu Minorities as and when the fundamentalists determine to relish on.
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 Bangladesh, some 26,00,000 acres of land was declared as Enemy Property and at least 2 crores of Hindus were compelled to leave Bangladesh under an Islamic conspiracy.

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.
