Allegations of Bangladeshi Hindus being denied visas by Indian High Commission

The actions taken by the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh have caused a stir recently. Many Hindu residents of Bangladesh have expressed concerns that they are being denied visas to Bharat for arbitrary reasons, while Muslims are apparently being granted visas more easily even if their documents contain errors. The Hindus affected by this alleged discrimination have complained that they have to go through a great deal of trouble to get a visa to visit Bharat.

Recently, Nihar Halder, a Bangladeshi Hindu activist, and Sri Kushal Baran Chakraborty, a renowned professor from Chittagong University, brought to light the plight of Bangladeshi Hindus in a video message to the Bharatiya High Commission. In the video, Halder recounted his own experience of mistreatment at the High Commission.

Nihar Halder complained that the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh was not granting him a visa despite numerous attempts to obtain it. After a prolonged struggle, he was eventually given only a three-month visa. He urged Bharat’s Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of External Affairs to take immediate action against the alleged unethical practices and discriminatory behavior of certain staff members of the High Commission of India in Bangladesh, who have been targeting members of the Hindu community when granting visas to Bharat.

Sri. Kushal Baran Chakraborty, a prominent professor at Chittagong University, echoed Nihar Halder’s sentiments and expressed his concern over the mistreatment of the Hindu community at the Indian High Commission. He requested the government of Bharat to investigate the matter, as the Hindus were facing difficulty in obtaining visas. He noted that the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of External Affairs could easily ascertain the truth if they pay a little attention. He also added, ” It is our humble request to the Government of India to look into this matter seriously. Even though we are Hindus, we are not able to get Indian visas. As people of the Hindu community, this matter has given us a lot of pain.”

On the other hand, even after instigating a boycott of Bharat and Bharatiya goods over the Nupur Sharma issue, Majibur Rahman Toton, a prominent leader of Jamaat-e-Islami in Bangladesh was granted a Bharatiya visa. He had recently visited Delhi for medical treatment.

The Hindu community in Bangladesh is questioning if their Dharma is the cause of their difficulty in obtaining Bharatiya visas, while the Muslim community is seemingly receiving them much more easily. This is not the first time that such a situation has occurred, where dubious groups seem to exercise influence over the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh. If this matter is not addressed soon, it could have a negative effect on Bharat’s reputation among Hindus across the world.
