Under the provocation of the fundamental Islamic clerics and Jihadi organizations, the Durga Puja Committees in Bangladesh have been facing troubles to observe the Pujas so far. Threats are coming to stop Durgapuja in Public even in the capital of Bangladesh.
The united Jihadi forces have given threat to stop the Puja of Uttara Friends Club in capitals Uttara area in written to the administrative and police authorities including various political parties. The Sharia loving people have given the reference of Quran as there should be permission of idol worship in any Islamic state like Bangladesh.
They categorically referred Al Quran in Surah (6) al-Anaam Ayaat 74 – 79+, Surah (21) al-Anbya 52-70+ and Surah (17) al-Bani Israel+ to stop the idol worship in order to defeat the non-Muslims for ever under Sharia.
Many of Durga Pujas in Islamic Bangladesh have been stopped or otherwise idols were vandalized there this year and the news could never find the light of truth that minority Hindus in Bangladesh are barely deprived of their religious rights.
Hindu interlocutor and Hindu Existence Website editor, Upananda Brahmachari took this persecution on BD minority Hindus as high concern and tweeted this matter+ Indian PM Narendra Modi and Union External Affairs Minister Dr Jaishankar to intervene into the matter to stop attacks on the festivals of minority Hindus in Bangladesh.
