Guwahati. Hindu organisations on Monday held protests outside the Bangladesh Assistant High Commission in Guwahati, condemning the vandalism of temples in Bangladesh during the Durga Puja festival and attacks on Hindus in the neighbouring country. Kutumba Suraksha Mission, Himalaya Parivar, Hindu Jagaran Manch and other Hindu organisations shouted slogans against the attacks on Hindu people and vandalism of temples in Bangladesh.
The protesters handed over a memorandum addressed to the Bangladesh Prime Minister to the Bangladesh Assistant High Commissioner in Guwahati and demanded safety, security and dignity of Hindus in the neighbouring country.
In the memorandum, the Hindu organisations said, “This is very unfortunate to see the kind of inhuman behaviour towards the minority Hindus of Bangladesh by the majority of the country. We request to ensure the citizenship rights of Hindus in Bangladesh who are also the son of the soil of Bangladesh.”
The organisations asked the Bangladesh government to ensure the dignity and security of Hindu women by protecting them from rape, rape and murder and forceful religious conversion to Islam in Bangladesh.
They asked the government to stop atrocities on Hindus and their families in Bangladesh and provide them with the environment to co-exist with the majority community citizens of Bangladesh by observing their Hindu cultural and religious faith, belief and practices.
They asked for protection of the significance and pride of Hindu temples, Hindu culture, religious centres, organisations and groups.
Kutumba Suraksha Mission Shiladitya Deb said, “We want to tell the Bangladesh government to do something; otherwise, we will have to take some other stern action.”
