8 Saraswati murtis vandalised in Bangladesh temple

Eight murtis of Maa Saraswati were desecrated and vandalised at a temple in Sadar upazila of Kurigram district, Bangladesh early on Friday, reports The Daily Star.

Kamali Rani Das, a priest at Sri Sri Shitlipat temple at Khanpara village, said she found the eight murtis damaged at the temple when she went there for prayers in the morning.

The miscreants also smashed the temple door, said Kamali Rani Das. Police visited the spot and claimed they are working to identify those responsible.

Attacks on temples and desecration of murtis is a common tactic used by Islamists to terrorise Bangladeshi Hindus. As per a report released recently by minority rights organisation Bangladesh Jatiya Hindu Mohajote, 40,703 incidents of atrocities were recorded against Bangladeshi Hindus in 2020, a rise of 29% compared to the previous year. 149 Hindus were killed, 7,036 injured, 53 women & children raped, 370 murtis desecrated, 163 temples vandalised or set on fire, 2623 people forcefully converted  and over 10,000 acres of land forcefully occupied.
