A group of 25-30 Islamist militant led by Abul Khayer Bokshi, a kin of a ruling party (Bangladesh Awami League) leader, attacked a Hindu temple & vandalised 3 murtis of Hindu deities including Maa Kali, Maa Saraswati & Radha-Krishna in Mirzapur sub-district under Tangail district of central region of Bangladesh.
The attackers also cut down 60 fruit trees in the temple premises, Hindustan Times reported in it’s Bengali website on 14th July 2022. According to the report, the temple committee has lodged a complaint with the local police station in this connection. However, no arrest has been made so far.
Chief adviser of the temple committee, Jagadish Chandra Pramanik said that he lodged a complaint against 16 people at the police station in this regard. He said, “In the afternoon, militants attacked the temple in front of me. 25-30 militants entered into the temple and vandalised 3 idols. They then cut down the fruit trees in the temple compound. We did not go to rescue for fear of being attacked.”
In another shocking incident reported from Naogaon district of northern Bangladesh, a Hindu couple were tied to a tree, beaten and an attempt was made to seize their land. Their house was also vandalised. The attack was carried out with the cooperation of some local leaders, including ruling Awami League leader Asadul Islam, to seize the homes of the Hindu couple, Bengali-language national daily newspaper of Bangladesh Bhorer Kagoj has reported.
In Chattogram district of south-eastern Bangladesh, ancestral land belonging to a Hindu family has been grabbed and the family has been evicted by a Muslim man named Abul Khair. When a case was filed in the court in this regard, the accused attacked the victim Shimul Dar in the court premises, Bangladeshi Bengali-language satellite and cable television channel South Asian Television (SA TV) has reported on its website.
In yet another case of land jihad, sub-district chairman Syed Md. Shahjahan in Habiganj district of north-eastern Bangladesh has grabbed land belonging to a Hindu family. This land shark is the former president of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) local sub-district unit, reports Bengali language national daily newspaper of Bangladesh Amader Shomoy.
An attack on a Hindu temple and desecration of murtis in Dhaka district’s Keraniganj by a gang led by Awami League leader Md. Mirazur Rahman has also been reported by Bangladeshi Hindu activist group ‘Voice of Bangladeshi Hindus’. Secretary of the temple and other Hindu devotees were said to be seriously injured in the attack.
Even the highly-educated professional class of Bangladeshi Hindus is not safe. A noted Hindu physicist has also become a victim of Islamist land grabbing. Due to the negligence of local authorities, Yahia Ferdous, the mutawalli of a waqf estate, has occupied a strip of land of his neighbour – renowned physicist Prof Arun Kumar Basak – since 2003 in Rajshahi city’s Sagarpara area, reports Bangladeshi English language daily newspaper The Daily Star. Despite the legal verdict going against him, Ferdous has continued to illegally occupy the land and harass the 82-year-old educationist for years.
Yes it is time to come together and protect hindus, and together hindus can protect each other. Be united and be protected. And take action against such activity.
It is time for Hindus to do something. Indian Muslims have already decided to convert Bharat to a Muslim state by 2047.
