Violence against Hindus in Bangladesh: VHP Shillong unit seeks Meghalaya governor’s intervention
The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) Shillong unit, on October 27, urged Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik to act against the alleged atrocities committed on Hindus residing in Bangladesh during Durga Puja.
In a memorandum submitted to Malik, VHP Shillong president Krishan Kr Sharma said, "We appeal to immediately issue condemnation of this cycle of violence against the Hindus and other minorities of Bangladesh and allow a delegation from the Government of India to Bangladesh.”
Sharma has also urged the government of Bangladesh to take strict action against the culprits, and protect the minority Hindus in the country. Informing that reports of violence against Hindus during Durga Puja, have been reported from over 22 districts in Bangladesh, Sharma said, "For the last nine days, attacks on the Hindu minority of Bangladesh is going unabated.”
The VHP has also appealed to the United Nations Organisations (UN) to play a proactive role in preventing atrocities against Hindus in the neighbouring country.
Sharma said, "After the vandalisation of the Hindu shrine/temple and Puja pandals, the Hindu families are now frequently under attack. At least 150 Hindu Durga Puja pandals and ISKCON temples were set ablaze in Bangladesh. The idols of deities too were vandalised and broken.”
