Meanwhile the Hindu community elders who met the Bangladesh Minority Watch are aprrehensive of their survival.

At Nasir Nagar-Brahmanbaria, Hindu victims were in tears when they told the Bangladesh Minority Watch team about the violence they faced at the hands of Islamists and wondered how they would be able to live peacefully with the Musim neighbours in Bangladesh.


Bangladesh police have arrested Babul Howladar in connection with a Hindu Temple desecration case. He smashed and desecrated at least 9 Hindu deities at Banaripara Central Horishava at Barisal District on 04.11.2016. The Daily Jugantor reported on his arrest.

The criminal was arrested after a CCTV footage nailed him and Babul Howladar was arrested from village Noruttampur within the Upazila of Barisal district.

Bangladesh Minority Watch communicated with Mohammad Zeaul Hasan, Officer in Charge of Banaripara police station, who said a case has been started by Bibekananda Kundu before the police station. However, the minority watchdog found the case weak as the case was filed under section 295/297 of the penal code and demanded that the police insert section 295A of the penal code which would have ensured stricter punishments.
