Islamists garland Hindu college principal & student with shoes: Bangladesh

Persecution of Hindu minorities over the Muhammad row continues in Bangladesh. The latest victim of Islamist majoritarianism in neighboring Bangladesh is the principal of a Hindu college Swapan Biswas. Biswas was forced to wear a garland of shoes as one of the students from his college Rahul Dey Roy had posted a photograph of Nupur Sharma on social media.

An OpIndia report on the matter says:

…The incident took place at Mirzapur United College in Narail’s Sadar Upazila on June 17. According to reports, the incident occurred after a Hindu student named Rahul Dev Roy studying in the eleventh class shared a post hailing Nupur Sharma on Facebook along with her photo. Nupur Sharma has been criticized for her allegedly derogatory comments on the Prophet Muhammad. When the Hindu student arrived at the campus, some Muslim students met him and asked him to delete the post. But the Hindu student refused to do so. He had written ‘Pranam Nio bas Nupur Sharma, Jai Shri Ram’, and it was deemed insulting to Islam by the Islamists.

After that, the Muslims went to meet principal Swapan Kumar Biswas and demanded to take strong action against the student. Seeing that the situation has become serious, the principal kept the Hindu student in his office and called the police to take appropriate action.

But this worsened the situation because the Islamist Students started to spread the rumor that the Hindu principal was protecting the Hindu student despite the latter committing blasphemy. The rumor spread outside the campus, and Islamists and clerics from the area arrived at the college demanding action against both the principal and the students. Angry Muslim residents and students set fire to the principal’s and two other teachers’ motorbikes. Meanwhile, the police arrived and tried to take the student to the police station. But the mob prevented them, and they clashed with the police…

…In the video, it can be seen that several policemen were present at the scene, but they were mute spectators. They didn’t anything to protect the student and the principal from this Islamist attack. Later, more police came and they tried to extract Rahul from the mob but were not able to do so. Instead, there was a big fight, and several people were injured in it, including Bangla language teacher Shaymal Kumar Ghosh who was seriously injured. Several students, policemen, and outsiders were injured in the clash.

The entire mayhem began at 10 in the morning and continued till 4 PM. The police were incapable of containing the violence as more and more Islamists joined in. It was only after senior officials of district administration and police came to the college in the evening that the crowd was pacified. Both Swapan and Rahul were taken to the police station. Subsequently, Swapan was let off while the Hindu student was arrested under Digital Safety Laws.

Swapan has since gone into hiding along with his family say reports. The college has replaced Swapan Biswas with Akhtar Hossein Tinku who has been appointed as Principal in-charge. It has also come to light that two committees have been formed by the district magistrate and the police to probe the incident. Rahul Dev Roy has been sent to judicial custody by a court.

A rally was scheduled for Monday (June 27) in support of the Hindu duo who many believe have been targeted due to their religious identity. “The teacher had no role in the incident. Police took him out without protecting him. What do those who run the administration want? This happened in front of hundreds of police personnel. This is a signal for Bangladesh. Has the administration fallen into the hands of fundamentalists?”, questioned Robin Ahsan who is one of the organizers of the rally.

As per reports, Swapan was deliberately targeted as a ploy to rob him of the principal’s post. The mob is said to have focused on Swapan despite him having no role in the ‘blasphemy’ charge. The Hindu student’s Facebook post was simply used as an opportunity to ‘get rid’ of the principal in keeping with the conspiracy to remove him from the post.

  1. What a shame! The school principal is being garlanded with shoes! Is there any education out there in B’desh except narrow, parochial religious beliefs?
    Bangladeshi Hindus will be wiped out in less than a decade. In 1971 when B’desh gained her independence, the Hindu population was 35%. Currently, that figure stands 8%.
    Hindus’ days are numbered. The Muslim majority instead of safeguarding the Hindu minorities there has been hatching up ploys after ploys to eradicate the Hindus. A very well-planned mechanism.
    Would the B’desh police and administration remain silent spectators if Hindu students would manhandle a Muslim principal? Certainly not.
