Bangladesh, Hindus, Hinduism, Hindu Temple, desecration

Bangladesh is failing to keep the radicals at bay as another Hindu Temple desecration has come to light.

Bangladesh Minority Watch has reported that perpetrators desecrated and vandalized 20 Hindu deity statues in three Hindu Temples at Jamalbazar Area of Tungipara Upazila of Gopalgonj District. The incident occurred on 5th January, late night, and The daily Amader Somoy dated 5.01.2017 also carried the news.

The Hindu Priests informed the police after finding the damaged idols in Dumuria Sarbojanin Durga Temple, Hari Temple, and Radhagobinda Temple.

Rabindra Ghosh of Bangladesh Minority Watch (BDMW) communicated with Md. Mahamudul Hoque- Officer in Charge of Tungipara police station at Gopalgonj District who said that he is not in a position to give any details about this crime and told him to contact with Susanta Kumar Khan, the Investigating Officer of the case.

Ghosh was later told by the officer that three perpetrators have been arrested so far in this connection.

The perpetrators are:

Torab Talukdar (32)

Sabur Sheikh (30)

Sohel Rana (28)

All three of them are now in police custody.

Sukhamoya Bain, Priest of the Temple, told the BDMW advocate, that the situation is horrible and cried for their immediate arrest of other perpetrators responsible for the desecration.

Bangladesh Hindus are in danger

The Priest also told Adv. Rabindra Ghosh that the Hindus of the locality are in danger and are not even in a position to express their anguish.

Bangladesh Minority Watch may visit the spot soon as it believes that more findings will help bring respite to the minority community.

Due to continuous attacks on the Hindu minority many have taken refuge in nearby India where they live in penury and uncertainty.
