Paramita Das | HENB | Dhaka | May 11, 2016:: Indian Foreign Secretary Subramanyam Jaishankar arrived Dhaka this afternoon to convey New Delhi’s full support to Bangladesh on countering violent extremism amid spreading of terrorist acts in recent months.
Diplomatic sources says that India’s dismay ‘over recent spurt of killings of the religious minority, particularly the Hindus, and attacks on temples in Bangladesh’, is now in the focus of the high level discussion.
Jaishankar was received at the airport by his counterpart Md Sjajidul Haque, Indian High Commissioner Harsh Vardhan Shringla and other high officials.
The present visit of Jaishankar is significant as he arrives Dhaka within some hours after the notorious war criminal and fanatic Islamist Motiur Rahman Nizami Rajakar was hanged in Dhaka Central Jail.
Soon after his arrival he called on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Gano Bhaban. He will also meet Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali.
He will hold bilateral meeting with Haque on Thursday and the two diplomats will discuss entire range of bilateral issues, including water-sharing, transit, development of Pyra Port, trade and investment, Indian Line of Credit, review implementation of various development projects, as stated.
His visit assumes high importance in the backdrop of the recent killings of bloggers, secular activists and teachers, minority Hindu persecution as well as the overall security situation in Bangladesh and South Asia. India is likely to convey its high concern about the growing Jihadi outfits in BD which are operating its training centers in BD affecting peace and harmony in the region.
Jaishankar conveyed PM Modi’s invitation to BD PM Hasina for visiting India in coming months.
It is the first time, PM Modi in his office, India conveys its concern about the rigorous Hindu persecution in Islamic Bangladesh in a very pathetic situation.
